I am loving what Scholastic has to offer in this area. Their line of "Little Scholastic" board books are adored by my son- and even enjoyed by my 4 and 6 year-old.
Here are some of my favorites:
- Petting Farm (ages 0-3)- This is of course a fun book for my son who loves ALL farm animals, and is especially fanatic about cows and horses. Each page has a fun texture to touch. The pig has a rubber nose, the horses have long furry hair, the sheep have woolly bodies, etc. To top it off, the book comes with an adorable 20 minute DVD that features real footage of (of course) farm animals set to cute music.
- Peek-A-Zoo- (ages 0-3) This colorful board book is filled with cut out shapes, flaps to lift, textures to touch. My daughters love the fact that many of the pages contain sparkles, and my son loves the mirror that is half-way through the book that he can stare adoringly into. I love the fact that this board book teaches shapes, sizes, and colors- and keeps my toddler quite entertained during church in the process.
- Numbers-(ages 0-2) This Little Scholastic book covers the numbers in a fun 3 dimensional way. Each page is dedicated to a number (1-5), and includes something fun for a baby to touch. The "1 soft caterpillar" page is a favorite in our house.
- The Tiny Tadpole (ages 1-3) This board book will teach your little one about the life cycle of a frog. My son LOVES frogs, so this one is extra fun in our house. The story is quite cute, the pictures are texturized so there is something to touch on every page. The end of the story has a fun surprise that my son always looks forward to.
