I am lucky to be on a review crew for Tiger Tales publishing. They have great books for children under seven years old. We just received another big box of books to review, and we both loved to take the books out of the box and predict what we are going to find inside based on the cover. There were a couple of favorites that I wanted to share with my readers.
When Smarty was a baby, she really liked word books and search-and-find books. I found it cute that Big Book of My World by Kali Stileman was her favorite, and she keeps looking at it from time to time. It’s a great early learning book with bright pictures, many words and some questions and fun activities in the end. We will be happy to gift these book to Smarty's baby friends once I convince her to part with it.
The Great Fairy Tale Disaster and its companion The Great Nursery Rhyme Disaster, both by David Conway/Melanie Williamson, was well received by Smarty. She enjoyed tracking the story of Big Bad Wolf and Miss Muffet who left in search of a better fairy tale and nursery rhyme. This is a good book for somewhat older readers that are able to recognize references to various rhymes and fairy tales.
The Really, Really, Really Big Dinosaur by Richard Byrne was a cute book that we read together. I liked illustrations, but wasn’t sure about the message. I don’t want to elaborate in case you want to read a book. Smarty said that this book was funny and that little dinosaur was cute. It’s a good read for 3+, since the humor and illustrations might not be appreciated as much by younger audience.
