Children's Board Books
by Sandra Boynton
We absolutely loved this
book! It was one given to our son, Thomas, by friends in
Loveland, Colorado, Clyde and Norma Rensch. The lively verse
and adorably drawings of animals as they get ready to "pajama
dee bop" are irresistable. The words work into a crescendo
until you are brought down to a whisper at the end. You'll
want to read it again and again - never mind your child!
If anything, this book will have you up and bopping as you
help your toddler change into bedtime clothes. This is a
sure-fire hit for the toddler set as well as the "older"
parent and grandparent set. This is our ultimate favourite
good night book. Make sure it is part of your toddler's
Hippos Go Berserk!

Because we so loved Pajama
Time, I had extremely high expectations of this book as
well. While it is a good counting book, it doesn't have
quite the same charm as the above mentioned book. I was
expecting the hippos to do some more crazy things rather
than the one page that the title refers to. It is good in
that it counts forward as the hippos show up for a party
and then backwards as they all leave for the party. My son,
who is just becoming aware of numbers and counting at 2
years, sat for quite some time looking at the pictures and
pointing out "fee" (three). Maybe this one will
gain in popularity as we read it more and more. The counting
forward and backward is definitely an original touch among
the counting books out there. The artwork is again adorable.
You can't but help love hippos when they're drawn this way!
Go ahead and check this one out for yourself!
Hey! Wake Up!
This book follows in the
phenomenal tradition of Pajama Time. We're back to
the catchy verse, the adorable animal drawings, a routine
that every child can relate to (waking up in the morning),
and verse that is enjoyable for parents to read over and
over as well. This one also lends itself well for great
vocal and facial expression on the part of the reader! It
makes reading fun for everyone! A second to add to your
toddler's growing library!
