If you want to keep your child busy and happily engaged, a Richard Scarry book will do the trick!
This book is about a boy named Tommy who wakes up in the middle of the night and assumes things around him as ghosts and is therefore very frightened.
The book includes both male and female names of the animals and birds. It then goes on to mention what their babies are called. The various calls of them are also woven into the content along with and the produce each of the farm animals provide us with.
The book begins with one wheel rolling down the hill and then a clown using it as a unicycle for his performance. Each page spread adds another wheel and then provides examples for the same. This can actually be used to learn counting and adding in a simple way along with reading about different vehicles having different number of wheels.
The picture books from this series meant for 3-8 years, were either inspired by real stories or were created for actual children known to the author! The illustrations are larger than life and sometimes seem like they will jump out of the book!
The ‘brrr’s and ‘chatter’s of winter, the ‘buzz’ of the bees in spring, the ‘slurrp’ of a tongue on an ice cream, the ‘pitter-patter’ of raindrops and the vivid colourful sans verdant description of autumn almost transports you into that lovely scene.
