1 A Kiss Means I Love You Kathryn Madeline Allen Infant/Toddler Books Vibrant color photographs of children and caregivers explore different actions, expressions, words, and sounds, from a kiss and a clap to a wave and a yawn. Babies love to learn from our faces! Big Fat Hen Keith Baker This version of the familiar rhyme One, two, buckle my shoe gives everyone lots of things to count, including newly hatched chicks! Ten, Nine, Eight Molly Bang A young girl gets ready for bed in this gentle countdown lullaby. My Car Byron Barton Sam tells us all about the car he loves while vivid illustrations, full of eyecatching primary colors, show him taking care of it and driving it to work. Goodnight Moon Margaret Wise Brown Soothing rhythmic tone and gently darkening illustrations come together in this classic, comforting bedtime story where a little bunny says goodnight to all the familiar things in her world.

2 From Head to Toe Eric Carle This interactive story asks young readers about the different actions each animal does, and invites them to imitate their movements. Kids will have a great time stomping like an elephant and wiggling like an alligator, all while building their vocabulary. The Very Hungry Caterpillar Eric Carle A caterpillar eats through all the days of the week and an amazing variety of foods on his way to a wonderful transformation. Jesse Bear, What Will You Wear? Nancy White Carlstrom Jesse Bear, what will you wear/ What will you wear in the morning?" The joyous answers include the predictable (pants and shirt) and some terrific surprises in this wonderful rhyming book. What Shall We Do with the Boo-Hoo Baby? Cressida Cowell A dog, a duck, a cat and a cow do their best to soothe a crying baby. Which animal s solution will work? Bright, uncluttered illustrations and repeated animal sounds invite lots of fun toddler participation! Freight Train Donald Crews All aboard! Join us on a train ride as a colorful train goes through tunnels, cities and over trestles. Great for young train fanatics and talking about colors.

3 Jamberry Bruce Degen A little boy walking in the forest meets a lovable bear who takes him on a berry-picking adventure in the magical world of Berryland. This cheerful ode to jam features plenty of counting and rhyming. Where Is the Green Sheep? Mem Fox Lively rhyming text plenty of opportunities to point out daily objects and activities as young readers discover different kinds of sheep: up and down sheep, moon and star sheep, near and far sheep. But where, oh where is the green sheep? Time for Bed Mem Fox As nightime approaches, this soothing picture book shows parents throughout the animal kingdom, from cats to ducks to the tiniest mice, trying to get their children ready for sleep. Toot Toot Beep Beep Emma Garcia This board book follows cars throughout their busy day in the city. Where s Spot? Eric Hill Spot is everyone s favorite!

4 Eyes, Nose, Fingers, and Toes: A First Book About You Judy Hindley Play along as these toddlers discover various parts of their body.

Black on White Tana Hoban This board book features black illustrations against a white background depicting objects including an elephant, butterfly, and leaf. This is a great way to use a book to start a conversation with your little one. Peekaboo Morning Rachel Isadora A playful toddler greets everyone and everything with a game of peek-aboo. This board book features simple text and warm pastels that illustrate the beloved children s game as a charming toddler moves through a new day naming everything in view, including their parent. This Little Chick John Lawrence Children will love guessing what sound the little chick will make next as he visits his neighbors and hops, jumps and swims with the different animals. This board book s engaging artwork and rhyming text (featuring plenty of animal sounds!) will delight both children and parents. Everywhere Babies Susan Meyers Frazee s wonderful illustrations portray all kinds of babies everywhere their moods, their expressions, their activities as they grow and are loved every day.

5 Shoes, Shoes, Shoes Ann Morris What do your shoes look like? Clear photographs and simple text show children and their families from various parts of the world wearing different kinds of shoes.

Bright illustrations complement the story s energy and enthusiasm. Also available as a board book. Five Little Chicks Nancy Tafuri Warm, colorful illustrations and simple counting text accompany five little chicks and Mama Hen throughout the day. This works great as a one-onone read aloud.

6 Carry Me! Rosemary Wells Three short poems and soft pastel watercolors capture the curiosity of a toddler who wants to be carried, talked to and sung to, to find out all about the world around her. I Went Walking Sue Williams A child encounters with one familiar animal after another in this pleasing book with rhythmic text and illustrations that burst with life. A great title to use for building vocabulary, and encourages little ones to make animal noises.
