Baby Book Review #002

Okay, so I couldn't wait for this time of the week!

Last week, I launched a brand new series on the blog
titled "baby book reviewand if you missed it, no worries, just click here!

This week I wanted to share
by Caroline Jayne Church

We are a HUGE fan of Caroline Jayne Church in our home.
Her books send some of the sweetest messages to little ones,
they are super fun and easy to read
NOT TO MENTION the art work is seriously the most adorable!

Ten Tiny Toes is one of our favorite books to read, 
and we use it in an educational way too. (Bonus!) 

My son has a short attention span with anything other than playing with his cars and trains, 
but that is the great thing about this book.
It's a short and sweet read. 

The book starts off with just pointing out body parts
"mouth, ears, eyes, nose"
and then continues to add some movement as well as short commands
such as "touch your ears, make them wiggle" and
"touch your toes, bend down low | touch your legs, up you go."

We really have so much fun with this book.

Jackson is now 21 months old, so can follow along, and point out all the body parts
as they mention them in this book, 
but even when he was much smaller
I would read this book to him, and show him where MY "mouth, ears, eyes, and nose" were.

I promise I'm not some "my son needs to learn every second of the day" mom's 
however when you can incorporate both a love for reading AND learning into one book-
you've won me over! 

Here are a few of the other books by Carolyn Jayne Church.
(And yes, we have and love them all!)
