Book Review: Dinosaur’s Binkit

I have easily become a huge fan of Sandra Boynton.  Her books are just plain fun and this one is no exception.    Little Lucy still adores books that she can interact with.  This board book is full of textures and flaps to lift to keep her busy and entertained.  It is time for Dinosaur to settle down for sleep but all Dinosaur can think about is finding the elusive “binkit”.  Little ones with a lovey of their own are sure to relate to Dinosaur’s search.

Book Review: Begin Smart Series, Bouncy Baby: A First Lift-the-Flap Book

Begin Smart is a series of books for “Smart Babies” from six to twelve months.  Behind the front cover is a message to parents about object permanence and how lift-the-flap books aid babies with this concept.  The message also assists parents with how to use the book to best enhance the learning and discovery for their child.  Each page has simple colorful illustrations with a movement for baby to imitate underneath each flap.  With rhyming words babies can practice clapping, dancing, splashing, eating and waving bye-bye.  We love this book even more because the last page says, “Bye-Bye, Lucy”!

Book Review: Baby’s Very First Touchy-Feely Animals Book

(Probably) the last of the touch and feel book that I will review (unless I come across something super spectacular).  This is Little Lucy’s very favorite book.  The illustrations are simple, bright and appealing.  I have noticed that books with too much detail, too many busy illustrations, are not as enticing to her.  There is an animal with a corresponding adjective and name to feel on every page and an abundance of “furry” ones (her favorite).  Additionally, there is a grid at the back of the book with the name, color and picture of each animal featured.
