"I like to meet new people when I'm out. 'He's so little!' they say, or 'He's so big!' 'Is it a boy?' or "Is it a girl?' / Or once a big kid stopped and said, 'He has no hair!' Which I didn't appreciate."
"I like to eat when the sun hasn't quite risen yet and then again when I decide to really get up and then a little later and then in the afternoon / and a little while before supper and a little while after and when the moon comes up and a few times later in the evening, / and then again when it's still dark and me and Mom are the only ones up. Except for Dad."
Bookworm's interest at 16 months: He wouldn't sit still through this one. I think he is too young for it, although I will try a few more times.
And a couple better suited for the younger crowd:
Baby's Day: Easy-Open Board Book (Easy-Open Board Books) (Board book), by Michel Blake. Two things make this brief board book full of photographs of objects in "Baby's Day" stand out -- first, the graduated sizing of the sturdy pages make opening them easier for infant hands. Second, the photographs are black and white, but one object is highlighted (with accompanying text) on each page. As you can see on the cover image, in which the cups are colored, the technique is very effective.
"Teether / chair"
Bookworm's interest at 15 months: He enjoys this one quite a bit now, but it would have also been a very nice one for him when he was younger. This would make a nice gift for a new baby.
Let's Play: Easy-Open Board Book (Easy-Open Board Books) (Board book), by Michel Blake. I accidentally returned this one to the library before I had written the review, but it is in the same series as the "Baby's Day" book reviewed above, and the style is similar. Black and white photos feature colored objects related to playtime.
Bookworm's interest at 15 months: He liked Baby's Day better, but would happily read this one too.
Have you read Teeny Tiny Baby with your child? If so, I'm curious to know how older kids respond to it.
