We're getting our Wednesday Watermelon Award in just under the wire. (The Wednesday Watermelon Award is an award we bestow upon one of our little bookworm's favorite books every week).
Diggers (Usborne Touchy Feely) (Board book), by Fiona Watt. This large touch and feel board book has been a hit at our house this week. I knew our little man liked it when he willingly sat down and read it on the floor of the library surrounded by board books (that he usually just wants to take off the shelves), and signed for "more" when we finished it. Each construction scene features multiple tactile parts, such as bumpy hubcaps, a furry dog, or a mirrored window.
"This yellow digger has a rusty bucket. / This yellow digger has muddy wheels."
Bookworm's interest at 16 months: He's not really into the touch and feel aspect of the book, but he enjoys every page. He points to the digger on each page, the birds on one page, the dog on another, the dumptruck in the background, etc.
Parent's Peeve: The book feels quite short, because each illustration is a two-page spread, so there are only five scenes.
