Today’s little #boardbook is Hello, Love! by Japanese artist Taro Miura via @raincoastbooks. Coming to bookstores on Christmas Eve of this year!
This sweet, simple board book illustrates adorable affection between animals with sparse, tender text and finishes with a family snuggle. High contrast colours make it ideal for new eyes and it’s small enough in size for little hands to enjoy.
We loved this sweet little baby book and would be thrilled to see versions with more diverse families at the end!
Recommended newborn+up, a great shower gift for a new baby.
Today’s #boardbook is a really fun novelty title: Quantum Computing for Babies by Chris Ferrie and Whurley via @raincoastbooks. This simplified version of a very complex idea is part of an adorable series for babies!We might have a soft spot for this title here at the blog because we have a Daddy who works in IT!
We love this simple, high contrast tour of how computers solve problems. The shapes and colours are perfect for new eyes and the content is perfect for every computer/IT/science geek in your life. An amazing shower gift! Recommended newborn+up, a giftable, notable board book!
Today on the blog are four titles from the upcoming Baby Animal Finger Puppet series by Yu Hsuan via @raincoastbooks: Baby Hedgehog, Baby Penguin, Baby Koala & Baby Duck.
Each board book is a compact, palm size, featuring a sturdy finger puppet that pokes through each page. The puppets are encouraged into lots of fun movements and sounds by the gentle story in each title. This classic format delights babies and kids alike and the variety of animals in this list ensures you can find just the right one(s) for your family.
Recommended 6 months+up.
It’s double pairs today on the blog! A pair of wonderful #boardbooks and a pair of amazing touch & feel flash cards from DK Canada Books!
First up: Baby’s First Words & Baby’s First Baby Animals. These bold, beautiful board books are bursting with colour and perfect for baby’s developing sight. I know we talk a lot about high contrast imagery for babies - but seriously, they’re wired to love bold, bright colours and stark contrasts as their sight takes leaps and bounds that first year! Pastels might be tempting to grown-ups, but a colour extravaganza is perfect for a baby. These two board books would make great shower gifts! Recommended from birth +up, these books can grow with your small and last into toddlerhood.
Second up: My First Animals & My First Things That Go. We love these touch & feel flash cards! Filled with textures and bold colours and on the back of each card, simple questions to ask your small so they can interact fully with the cards! Our 3 year old protagonist loved shouting out answers and describing the textures. This set can grow with your small and makes for a lively and fun reading and naming activity! Recommended 2.5 & up.
