Here’s a quick story…My son is 17 months old and we have been reading since the very beginning (read from the womb). This book brought me immense joy…Want to know why?
When this book arrived, I purposely did not hand it over to my child. I kept the book on the table to see if it grabs the attention of a toddler or not? To my surprise it did and my toddler picked it up and asked me to read it in his boo ba boo voice.
As the title suggests, the book is about all the amazing things our sky has to offer in the morning! At first sight, it is a very soothing and pleasant blue coloured book with a rainbow on the front page. It consists of 8 pages in all which is a decent number for a toddler to read. Each page has very beautiful yet simple illustrations which amazed me. The pictures in the book are not tacky at all – a child can totally relate them with his surroundings and this is what I really like the most.
As you flip through the pages, each picture has its own story to tell. There is plethora of room to discuss things over one picture with your toddler which helps widen their imagination as well as helps in relating to things around them. It has helped me spend quality time and have interesting conversations with my child. While we were reading the book, as soon as he saw the aeroplane he quickly went and grabbed his toy aeroplane to show me.
This book has helped me understand that my toddler has started to relate pictures in books with objects around the house. I was extremely happy to see what a book can do to a child.
For slightly older toddlers, we can introduce the concept of numbers and opposites using the same book. For eg- one cloud, two birds or four balloons. Big cloud and small clouds.
Overall, we loved this book and we have read it multiple times over and over again which forced me to include it in our Morning Story Basket as well. This book is published by Talking club an imprint of Speaking Tiger Books and I want to thank them for providing such good quality books which my child thoroughly enjoys.
A huge thanks to Kids Book Café for sending the review copy of this book which brought absolute delight to our family.
