Cute cute CUTE little board book with a kitten pretending to be a tiger. Love the illustrations and what the little kitty does that is so tiger-like but Baby NinJa got distracted by yesterday's book and was playing with Incy Wincy instead. So, lesson learnt - don't have 2 books out at once, even though one is somewhere else in the room where Baby NinJa can see it!
I got excited when I saw this book at the library. This was the illustrator for Roald Dahl's books. There was the same feel in this book and Baby NinJa loved the sounds of the animals but seemed more interested in turning pages than looking at them!
Seeing as Christmas isn't very far away, we decided to pick up a book that has some relation to the holiday. This full picture book is innocent and simple, full of magic and fun. Making up the story as you go is interesting but a bit too long for Baby NinJa's short attention span. Still a beautiful read to share with the little one.
Oops! I was so tired yesterday thay I forgot to post on what we read! And for the first time, it's one of the books that Baby NinJa actually spent time with, turning the pages by herself!
Admittedly, we got stuck on a couple of letters the first time round (Q for Queen and G for Giraffe) but I was pleased that for the first time, leaving the book on the playmat resulted in Baby NinJa exploring the pages by herself.
Hurray little one!
This book looked so promising with the little furry bear on the front. But the rhyming's a bit off and there are no other furry bits for Baby NinJa to touch so she lost interest pretty quick! Shame...this book has so much potential!
I loved this book! And Baby NinJa was so taken by the drawings of the little girl and her dog. You'd usually expect a little boy with his dog so it was a beautiful, unexpected change to see what happens between a little girl and her best friend.
ABC with Pamela Allen involves alphabets with pictures from her books so some of the examples used are uncommon. We only got to L for Lion before Baby NinJa got distracted so I ended up just reading the rest out loud.
p/s - Guess who's wee little fingers are trying to get the book?
It's not often that you get a rhyming numbers book that reflects the Chinese culture. This one has dragon boats, dim sum, mahjong and bamboo! The bright and colourful illustrations caught Baby NinJa's attention straight from the start! Or maybe it was her fascination with drums...
Did we unintentionally end up picking books about counting and numbers? This book counts to 5 with a little blue bird. The birds and the trees would make beautiful wall decals while teaching numbers to little ones. Simple, repetitive and pretty
Rhymes rhymes everywhere!
But no idea how to count! ;)
But still, Baby NinJa and I enjoyed the more familiar rhymes like '1, 2, 3, 4, 5, once I caught a fish alive' and 'there were 10 in a bed'. A repeat borrow in the future for sure!
Ahhh...a busy day of playing with Alexis enjoying the company of her little friends so this post is a wee bit late.
But we still did our book pledge with the Cuddlepot & Snugglebum series. This time it was numbers with May
Gibbs' Gumnut Babies. A very sweet numbers book, perfect for little girls with pink flowers and flutterbys. Too bad Baby NinJa isn't into pastels!
