This book's "I-spy" format creates a great environment for talking about the animals your child finds. Look for the featured animal on each page, or make it more challenging by looking for other suggested animals. The surprise pop-out spread at the end creates an extra big hide-and-seek scene -- perfect for building pre-reading skills.

To encourage beginning reading skills, talk with your child about his own life experiences and encourage him to explore his own back yard through drawing or writing. Use the names of these creepy crawly friends to practice phonological skills and play letter knowledge games.

You and your baby will enjoy your time together looking at, talking about and reading this fun counting book together. You little one will definitely be attracted to these pictures of familiar toys.

Now that your toddler can turn the pages in a book and is eager to try and solve problems, this interactive chunky board book is just right for him. Someone or something is hiding under inviting flaps that your toddler will need to move so that he can answer the question posed.

With this lift-the-flap book, you can engage your infant in an interactive storytime. The touch and feel parts of this book include: mirrors, sparkly foil and fabrics soft to the touch.
