The littlest learners will love to play with these chunky pages while they learn their first sounds and animals!
I am so impressed that our family has fallen in love with another Parragon board book! Brie, our toddler, is by far the pickiest person I’ve ever met. She basically doesn’t like half the foods you give her, is very discerning about the music we play, and insists on wearing specific clothes which is currently something with either My Little Pony or her ‘cute’ Minnie Mouse shirt. It’s a little maddening trying to reason with her on the importance of wearing her coat or putting on play shoes for school. Our oldest was so happy-go-lucky when she was that age that I never even realized that a two-year old could be so opinionated!
Brie’s opinionated attitude is the same for books and I promise you that out of all the books she has access to, she only has her few favorites that she wants us to read all the time. I have read the same book about not picking your nose (which Brie finds hilarious!) and books involving animals (her favorites) night after night. Whatever Parragon is doing to keep her interested in their toddler books is working. The latest book club recommendation is called “Cow Says Moo!” from their Little Learners series and Brie not only wants me to read it, she wants to participate in making noisy animal sounds so our entire block can hear her. Ha!
Cow Says Moo! is a chunky and innovative-shaped board book for toddlers that has an easy-to-grab handle and encourages kids to move and join in on the reading fun. Each page has, what I call, ‘peek-a-boo’ pages so your child can see another animal on the upcoming page. Brie likes it when I ask her, “What animal is next?” so she can yell out, “Horse!” or “Pig!” By now, she has become an expert on animal noises and she really gets into making a “QUACK” or “NEIGH” sound. Like all the books that she loves, she has memorized this one very quickly. I think Brie wants to be a reader just like she sees her older sis reading to us every night, and she is inspired to flip through this book herself and ‘read’ the pages to us. It’s brilliant! While book buying can be hit or miss for Brie, Cow Says Moo! has once again shown me that the Parragon board books are definitely a home run for our family. Yee-haw!
