Board Book Roundup

9780714878829Can You Eat? by Joshua David Stein
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars

Second only to Orange Pear Apple Bear, this book is the best I’ve seen that plays with homonyms and rhymes in a very simple yet fun way. It will have you considering the words in your own life.

Go to Sheep by Jennifer Sattler
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars

Go to Sheep is a very cute bedtime read that reminded me of Sheep in a Jeep (and not just because they both feature our ovine friends). Perfect humor for grownups and kids!

Overall: 5 out of 5 stars

My boss and I couldn’t stop playing with this book! We realized it was likely to get destroyed approximately 5 seconds after we put it out on the shelf, but that did not dissuade us. Perfect for the spatially-inclined – and you don’t need to know how to read to enjoy it on your own! Mirrors and rotating designs encourage readers to find the shape using the mirror flap. For slightly older kids, check out Which One Doesn’t Belong by Christopher Danielson.
