Measuring Up

I found this awesome book called Baby Caillou, I'm Growing at the local library. What makes this book so cool is that it folds out to measure Caillou.
                               The book folded out at full length.
                               Here is a close up of the book.

My daughter was to tall to do this, but you can use a doll or a smaller kid to actually measure them.
                                         Here is Reyna's Dora doll. I showed her how she can measure her doll.

Please let me know what you think of this unique book?

A Shine - A - Book

As you may know I am an Usborne Books & More Consultant. What makes the book Secret's of the Apple Tree by Carron Brown & Alyssa Nassner is unique  that when you shine a light through the page you see a hidden picture underneath it.
Here is an example of the inside of the book with a regular page.
 Now this is the inside with a book with a light behind the page. This is where you see what is hidden behind it.

Pictures Instead of Words

I came across this book On A Farm by Dana Meachen Rau at my public library.
What I liked about this book was instead of words there were pictures in it's place. For example, here is a page in the book that shows the pictures right next to the words.

Here is how the final page comes out looking when everything is in order.
This is a great book to combine both pictures and words. Have you ever checked out a book from the library or bought one of your own that was similar to this book?

Books and Toys!

My daughter Reyna is really into Dora the Explorer. So I thought why not combine the two! For example, have a favorite toy or doll that the child really likes and have a book about the favorite item the child likes.

Here is a picture of a Dora book that Reyna got from her school. I combined it with a Dora the Explorer doll that I found at a thrift store across the street.
I originally wanted Reyna to have Dora sit on her lap and "read", but she got silly and when I tried taking pictures they all came out blurry. So maybe in the future she can try to "read" to her doll again.

I hope you enjoyed this tip on combining toys/dolls and books together.

Mirror Book

I had gotten the book Baby Einstein: Mirror Me! A Mirror Book by Julie Aigner-Clark.from a library book sale .
                                          Here is a picture of the front of the book.

I  really liked how kids can see themselves in the mirror of the book.

Follow The Dotted Arrow!

My daughter Reyna had gotten a book from Usborne Books called There's a Mouse About the House.

Here is the front of the book.
With the book opened it shows how the mouse needs to follow the dotted arrow to escape the cat.
With Reyna following the dotted arrow, she needs to lift the flap and have the mouse go into the cookie jar.

Eventually the mouse escapes the cat and find a safe place to hide.

I loved how interactive this books is. My daughter wanted to play with this story book over and over again! If you are interested  in purchasing this book, please click on the link to buy:
