Annnnd we’re back!  This week with the fabulous DK Canada Publishing for a week of Pop-up Peekaboo books to delight your smalls!  
First up is Pop-Up Peekaboo Pumpkin because I don’t know about you guys, but at the first hint of a chill breeze, there were pumpkins on my doorstep.  All hail Autumn.

We love Pop-Up Peekaboo Pumpkin!  A sturdy, lap-size board book filled with Halloween imagery–but in friendly, stuffy toy form for smalls to enjoy without a scare.  Huge peekaboo flaps are great for little hands and gorgeous, high contrast Halloween colours are perfect for developing eyes.  A Halloween classic to enjoy for many years to come.  Recommended ages 1.5 & up!

Today’s board books are two new Follow the Trail titles from DK Canada: Follow the Trail Bugs & Follow the Trail Baby Dinosaurs.

We have featured Follow the Trail titles before on the blog and they are super fun for smalls!  Lap sized and sturdy these bright, sensory friendly books have finger trails to follow and loads of little details to spot.  Bold and high contrast with clean lines these books are designed for developing eyes and can be enjoyed from 6 months & up.  Great for the language explosion too so 2 & onwards can delight in the vocabulary.

Bonus blog call out:  Easy, phonetic spellings of the dinosaur names for grown-ups.

Today’s lap size board book is 100 First Words via DK Books Canada, coming out March 2017.

We love this mixed media, high contrast word book with every important theme covered!  Perfectly designed for new eyes this is a title that can grow with your small from 6 months onward!  High contrast imagery is a big deal for babies (I scoffed until my own small was hypnotized by a black & white board book at 3 months, now I’m a believer!) and proud toddlers will enjoy pointing and shouting the words they know.  A great title for the 2-3 language explosion time!

Primary colour palettes and modern illustration style make this feel like a great shower gift for the hip parents in your life too. Bonus blog call-out for being so snazzy.
