When I was an itty bitty, I took a book with me everywhere I went. Still happens with regularity. I love me my books, y’all.
I want Sweet E to love him his books too. That’s why I try and buy him the fun ones, the silly ones, the rhymey dancey ones.
What follows are some of my new favs (so much so, that when I brought home No No Yes Yes, Garry and I took turns reading it to each other in voices we imagined Sweet E would love…yep, grandparent weirdos).

Check ’em out:
Product Deets: Yanking cat by tail: no NO. Gentle pat on back: yes YES. And it’s funny how dumping a bowl of food gets a very different reaction from mastering the use of a spoon. An expressive baby demonstrates familiar behaviors — and their predictable responses — in an amusing board book that merits a giant YES!
Product Deets: A new toddler title charts a crucial achievement. There comes a point in a toddler’s life when going in one’s diaper is only one possible option, and the question must be raised: “Should I go in my potty?”
Product Deets: Spaghetti is yummy, but worms – and blue crayons, and sand, and other things too gross to mention – are definitely yucky when tasted. Amiably illustrated in a bright, graphic style, Leslie Patricelli’s spirited board book, YUMMY YUCKY stars an obliging, bald, and very expressive toddler who acts out each pair of opposites with comically dramatic effect.
Product Deets: Sniffles are quiet, but sneezes are loud. Amiably illustrated in a bright, graphic style, Leslie Patricelli’s spirited board book, QUIET LOUD, stars an obliging, bald, and very expressive toddler who acts out each pair of opposites with comically dramatic effect.
OMGosh, I’m so in love with these books. Leslie Patricelli for the win!
I bought Sweet E No No Yes Yes and he already had Potty. Once you click any of the above links you can see that there are SO MANY to choose from…I gave up adding after 20 books. I can’t wait to add to his list with some early Christmas shopping (yes! these! Christmas!).
The board books are study and colorful and fun to read. They will endure many many readings (and curious teethers) and can be passed down to siblings/cousins/imaginary friends.
Buy! Gift! Read!
Happy memory-making, y’all!
