Our morning read was a book new to me. It is A is for Apple and it is an interactive Tiger Tales book. We bought it at Target for about eight bucks. I was thinking of its' dual purpose~learning letters for T and the letter tracing/texture features for my developing first grade readers. It was a big hit with T and I have a feeling it will be with my firsties! (He loved it so much he watched Cat in the Hat with it!)
What I/we love about this book:
T-lift the flap fun
Mommy-two objects that start with each beginning sound
Mommy-repeated text on each page, "__ is for __ and __."
T-the letter T and the letter A
Mommy-the traceable letters we can feel AND the arrows that show you the correct direction
T-the igloo (HE LOVES IT!)
Mommy-the not so obvious pictures, like igloo! These are great for vocabulary building...especially with a curious toddler!
We are totally going to purchase the number version on our next trip to Target. Do you want to know more about Tiger Tales? I did! Check out their site-http://www.tigertalesbooks.com. Great for toddlers and up!
