Storytime: I See and Red, Blue, Yellow Shoe

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Helen Oxenbury is known for writing books for babies and toddlers that are warm and reflect the daily lives of children. Events that commonly occur in a baby or toddlers life are depicted in soft, inviting illustrations that children seem to really enjoy. In 'I See' children are introduced to five or six things that they may commonly see in their environment. On each page, accompanied by the illustration, only the word is there: the name of the person or object. This is especially nice when introducing vocabulary to very young babies or young toddlers.

'Red, Blue, Yellow Shoe' features real life photography of items commonly found in children's environments: a teddy bear, a flower, a cat and a rabbit are just a few of the items children will have fun looking at and naming their colour in this vibrant, fun board book.

Both books are very simple which makes them great for toddlers. And the fact that they are board books is another plus too *smile*.
