This is a book that helps young children settle into sleep as they learn the names of familiar and new objects--from mittens and kittens to "a bowl full of mush." The detailed illustrations, like the young mouse that moves around the room from page to page, and the objects that reappear on pictures that hang on the walls of the room, encourage children to follow the story and contribute to it. You might hear your child say, "Look, the little bears are also in the picture on the wall!"
Where could the little duckling be? Your child will love this reassuring take about how a mother duck finds her missing duckling. The lovely pictures have certainly made this book a winner. Caldecott Honor Book, 1985
Heavy fog rolls into a seaside village, making it impossible for anyone to see. The lobstermen must come to shore, families leave the beach, and the seagulls find a safe place to rest. Only the children in the village find the foul weather exciting and launch into a game of hide and seek in the fog. Muted and shadowy illustrations bring this foggy day to life. Caldecott Honor, 1966
Hondo the dog and Fabian the cat live harmoniously in the same household. One day Hondo goes on a trip to the beach, while Fabian stays at home with the baby. Your child will enjoy hearing about their adventures through the book's simple text and beautiful illustrations. Caldecott Honor, 2003
How can baby go to sleep when the village animals are so noisy? This book tells the story of a mother who quiets all the animals--from mosquito to lizard to water buffalo. But what will happen next? Rich, bold cut-paper-and-ink illustrations and rhyming text make this a book children love to hear time and again. Caldecott Honor, 1997
This book is part of a series of board books featuring adorable illustrated babies. I See shows babies spying interesting objects. Each double-page spread contains just one word. The other books in this series, I Can, I Touch, and I Hear, follow a similar format.
The author uses repeating text and colorful watercolor illustrations to describe the relationship between a young boy and his new baby brother. Although the boy helps take care of his brother, he is reassured that he is still his mother's baby at the end of the day.
