Every Saturday, I host a feature called Kid Konnection -- a regular weekend feature about anything related to children's books. This week, I'm going to share with you two cute board books by two of my very favorite children's book authors.
Duck and Goose are back in DUCK & GOOSE COLORS! by Tad Hills. In this delightful board book, Duck and Goose teach toddlers their colors. Fans of Duck and Goose will appreciate that these two adorable characters have returned in yet another cute installment of this series, and new fans will definitely fall in love with these sweet and fun animals.
The illustrations in DUCK AND GOOSE COLORS! are too sweet. They are simple but very fun to look at, and the text on each page is perfect for even the most active of toddlers. As my kids were growing up, we have a lot of books in our house that teach the main colors but none as cute as this one!
We are ten terrific rabbits
And we like to dance and sing.
Ten terrific rabbits.
We can do most anything.
Bunnies are very welcoming, so everyone (Boynton’s pigs, sheep, chickens, and YOU) can come join the chorus line—bunny ears mandatory, of course. Available for download will be an exuberant original song by Sandra Boynton and Mike Ford. -- Workman
At last year's BEA, I couldn't help but watch some Workman employees don bunny ears and break out in dance to this song! Naturally, a bunch of adults wearing bunny ears caught quite a few eyes; and it was a great way to promote Sandra Boynton's new book THE BUNNY RABBIT SHOW!
THE BUNNY RABBIT SHOW is another very cute board book that's guaranteed to make readers giggle. The book illustrates the song I linked to above, and it's terrific fun. I have been a huge fan of Ms. Boynton's for over 30 years and I absolutely love her books and music. THE BUNNY RABBIT SHOW is another winner for little ones... especially if played in concert with the song.
Thanks to the publishers for providing review copies of these books.
