More Board Books, July 15, 2009

Ages four and up will love these four "busy tots" board books. The titles I was able to examine were Birthday Party, Shopping Day, Summer Vacation and Little Helper. They are all designed to show teach words that are associated with each activity. Photographs are used rather drawings to help with connections to real world. A variety of tactile surfaces are embedded within the photo to stimulate active participation.

Reading level: Ages 4-8
Publisher: Ticktock Media, Ltd. (May 1, 2009)
ISBN-10: 1846968011
ISBN-13: 978-1846968013

What do Rabbits do?
What do Kangaroos do?
What do Cats do?
What do Monkeys do?

These are four books in a series that engage toddlers age four and up in exploring animals with simple facts and first words. The drawings are vibrant colors with funny playful animals. The text describes their behaviors and characteristics.

For example:
"Kangaroos have babies called Joeys."
