One of the best things about working here is sorting through the new titles we get in and discovering books I normally wouldn't be paying attention to. Lately, I've been quite tickled by the board books I've come across.
While we have the more typical board books that teach babies basic concepts and the familiar stories we grew up with, we also have fun and innovative titles.
In the tradition of Dorothy Kunhardt's Pat the Bunny series, Amelie Graux wrote and illustrated a couple of touch-and-feel books that give English, French, and Spanish translations of first words centering around certain themes like eating and sleeping. Every page is vibrant and colorful and is sure to captivate even the youngest readers while they learn different languages.
"I Love to Eat" and "I Love to Sleep" by Amelie Graux
These next books by Sebestian Braun have been all the rage with us. Kids (and adults!) will enjoy flipping the pages and trying on the different masks they turn into! The titles in the series are: "Look at Me, I'm a Monster!", "Look at Me, I'm a Robot!", "Look at Me, I'm an Alien!", and "Look at Me, I'm a Clown!"
Here we are as an alien and robot!
So, if you're looking for fun books for your young ones, these board books are for you!
