Seuss' crowning achievement, IMO.
Writing the best baby textbooks
Carle's book is a successful blend of intriguing facts, brilliant inspiration and colourful works of art: quality that captures the baby's eye and soul. Have a look at his other books: Also look out for Joyce Dunbar's Four Fierce Kittens; and Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell, who benefits from the babies' passion for the play of Peek-a-boo: images of pets hiding under lids until the kid finally finds the right animal - a pup.
Tales of speaking beasts are also popular with babies: for example, Spot the Puppy by Eric Hill; Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown; Nancy Carlstrom's Jesse Bear, What Will YOu and Jesse Bear's Tum-Tum Tickle; Deborah Guarino's Is Your Mama a Llama? and Cressida Cowell's What Shall We Do with the Boo-Hoo Baby?
babys like to look at images and photos of other baby, and they like to hear about baby like themselves: for example Welcome, Little Baby and One Little Soonful, both by Aliki; Sarah Hayes' Wrapping Paper Romp; Sarah Hayes' Wrapping Paper Romp; Jan Ormerod's Peek-a-Boo! ; Helen Oxenbury's 4 titles: Infants have brief attentions and prefers easy storytelling with easy plotting.
You' re fond of reading about the intimate worlds of home, the home and pets: easy tales of daily events such as walks, visits to the parks, going to the shops, swimming, games with your children or your brothers and sisters - with the baby as the key figure. Such as Ann Morris de Zum Beispiel Ann Morris, This Little Baby's and This Little Baby Goes Out ; Sarah Garlands 3 Titel :
Babys like basic rimes, especially finger games and actions rimes; for example: these 3 tracks by Marc Brown: Fingerreime; Handreime; Spielreime; Kay Chorao's Knock at the Door and other baby actions rimes; Nadine Bernard Westcott's Peanut Butter and Jelly: The babys adore a rhyme with a vivid beats or a melodic rythm and a lot of repetitions, for example Over in the Meadow by Ezra Jack Keats, Sylvia Longs Hush Little Baby and We're Going On a Bear Hunt! by Michael Rosen.
Since they are reread out loud, the tone of the words is important. Baby's like stupid words and stupid words, funny tales and funny images. A number of infants are mad about cars (just like some adults!) and go for any book on their pets theme, be it fire engine cars, locomotives, lorries, airplanes or missiles.
They can be pure information novels or tales about animation vehicles: Take a look at these 4 Peter Spier titles: Byron Barton ; 7 Titel von Byron Barton ; Big Tracks, Little Tracks ; Fast Cars, Slow Cars ; Here Come the Fire Tracks Byron Barton ; 7 Titel von Byron Barton ; Big Tracks, Little Tracks ; Fast Cars, Slow Cars ; Here Come the Fire Tracks ; Traveller : Byron Barton ; 7 Titel von Byron Barton ; Big Tracks, Little Tracks ; Fast Cars, Slow Cars ; Here Come the Fire Tracks Byron Barton ; 7 Titel von Byron Barton ; Big Tracks, Little Tracks ; Fast Cars, Slow Cars ; Here Come the Fire Tracks ; Traveller : Buy : Boats; Airplanes; Train; Truck; My Auto; Aerodrome; I want to become an ASTRONAU; 4 CREWs: tracks:
Freight train; Internal freight train; School bus; Thacher Hurd's Zoom City; Philemon Sturges' I Love Train; Dan Yaccarino's Zoom! Like the name implies, a storybook recounts a tale through the interaction of images and words. Images are as important as the text; part of the narrative or even the whole narrative can be narrated through the illustration alone.
Baby's loves large, clear, plain images in vibrant colours. Paperboard textbooks have pages of thick carton. Infants like small boards that they can support and interact with; they like the colourful images and the feeling of sleek, stable sides.
