Little Scholastic

I don't think you can ever have too many board books for your baby/toddler. I am constantly checking board books out from the library, and perusing Amazon.com to refresh our supply and give my 23-month old something new and exciting to read that will survive his curious fingers.

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.
All of these books are available at Amazon.com, and Buy.com, and of course on the Scholastic website.

Who would like to win some Little Scholastic Board Books??!! One lucky Citrus reader will win this cute collection of board books! Enter by leaving a comment on this post about who you would read these board books to. Shipping is to Continental US only. Contest will be open until midnight on Tuesday, August 26th. Winner will be randomly selected, and announced next Wednesday morning. Thank you Scholastic, for another great give-away!!

I love books! Hope I win!

Holly said...

I am not entering- just want to say that Peek a zoo has been Jack's favorite since he was about 8 months old1

Cecily said...

Please pick me... I was just thinking that I need to buy some new books for my 1 yr old (he has all hand-me-downs).

Leasha said...

We would LOVE to have these terrific board books to read as Kai is crazy about animals right now and impossible to sit through church unless I have a different book to keep his fingers busy! (and we do have a US mailing address :)

Amylouwho said...

I would read them to my 7-month and I'm sure my 2 year would quickly claim them as hers!

Jon and Angela said...

My kids love books and we can't get enough.

Aubrey said...

I would love to read these books and I would read them to my almost 2 year old son!

Em and Ms said...

My daughter LOVES books and is already getting tired of all hers. This looks like just what we need!

Kristie said...

They would be great for my 2 yr old daughter, but I am sure my 4yr old will be right there with us reading.:)

Emily said...

How fun! Most of my board books look like they've seen better days.

Dani W said...

Oh I would love to win this one! :) They are so cute! :)

ashley said...

I'd love to read The Tiny Tadpole to my almost-2yo boy; he's obsessed with frogs. And then he'll read the books to his stuffed puppy, making sure to show ALL the pictures.

Joni said...

Count me in.

Brian and Amelia said...

Yay! I love love love books, and so does my son! I would read them to him, of course, and hopefully to the rest of my children!

Susanna said...

board books are great, and not just for the little ones - my 3 year old still loves hers! i'd read to both my 9 mponth old and my 3 yr old.

Gloria Walshver said...

Great for my grandson who loves people to read him books.

Becca said...

My daughter loves being read to, but as she gets older (she's nearly 18 months) she prefers more and more to look at books on her own. Since she's a chronic page-ripper, I'll still only let her look at board books when she wants to do it on her own. I'd love to read these books to her too, in her less independent moods.

furygirl3132 said...

These books are great! I had some of these for my first daughter and now it would be great for my second daughter to have some books like this too! Thanks so much for the opportunity.

Hello! What a fun giveaway. I adore books and reading. We have a little nephew who loves coming to our home for visits! He usually stays around 4-5 days and it is "his" time while he is here. He is the one the books would be shared with. Please enter me in your delightful book giveaway drawing. Many thanks, Cindi

Always looking to expand our library! These days I'm on the floor reading to my 2 and a 1/2 year old on one side of my lap and my one year old on the other. Both with their thumbs in their mouth. Feels great.

Thanks for the opportunity!

MOM ForeverAndEver said...

how fun- these look great..i love books

SharonC said...

I would read these books to my 10 month old granddaughter and look forward to the day she'll "read" them to me. I love these sturdy educational attractive books!

Bippert Family said...

My son LOVES his "stories"! You can always tell which ones he prefers because the book bindings are starting to break, pages are ripped or stuck together, and his mommy can recite the pages by heart. He's at the age where he picks out his story, carries it over to me and climbs into my lap, head first, where he struggles to sit with his feet in front of him. It's the cutest thing! On top of that, any book with animals, my son absolutely adores!

laura said...

Funny - I just bought a couple small board books at the airport book shop, and had seen both the Petting Farm and Numbers books! Great to have your review of them, as it was hard to decide which our child would like best. If we win, the books would be read to our baby - due in January. Thanks!

cltgrace said...

Hi, I'm a pediatric therapist working with infants/toddlers who have developmental delays. This little set would be a great addition to my therapeutic toy bag. Books, particularly those with animals, are one of my greatests tools. These charming little books would be loved by several chubby hands while helping them meet some of those important milestones for language, cognitive & fine motor development. Thanks for hosting!

Dianna_Ball said...

Brooke said...

My two sons love to read. We read books frequently together, and I could see them loving these books as well. So, I would read them to my 3 year old son and the new babies.

Lindsey said...

I would read them to my three-month-old daughter. I just started reading to her and I only have one board book so I'm thinking she might get sick of just the one book soon. ;-) I remember loving the texture books when I was little so I'll definitely have to make sure she has them. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Meg said...

I still love board books for my 21month old. He can be pretty rough on paper, so its nice to let him hold the book as I read and not have to worry abt him ripping all the pages. These look super cute-thanks!

Audra said...

I would read them to my little guy- or should I say he would read them to me- He's only one but he likes to hold the book, turn the pages, and 'jabber' to me like he's reading me the story. Thanks for the fun giveaway.

I would read these books to my darling daugher Pea who will be a year on the 24th of August. She's a bit hard on books, so we're sticking to board books right now as they hold up well to her roughness. She loves to read and we always take lots of time during the day to do just that. It's so important!

Thank you for this great giveaway!

Natalie said...

Books are gold at our house. I reward with books, and with extra reading time. My three-year-old can read, and my baby "reads" books to herself for about a half hour a day. These books look like great picks for little fingers. Flaps and textures are especially entertaining.

Salem said...

These would be great to read to my son.
