For this review, I'm taking a closer look at two upcoming board books for toddlers from author Junzo Terada. Both are charming books that feature bright, cheerful animals who join each other for a fun event.
Animal Friends Barnyard Jamboree is the first offering. In this book for children ages 2 to 5, Cat has her banjo and is quickly joined by her friends. Who's joining the impromptu jamboree and what will that animal play?
In Animal Friends Swimming Hole Party, Monkey wants to go swimming, but he needs to decide who is coming with him.
Both books are ideal for beginning readers thanks to simple vocabulary and images that perfectly capture the action. Pages are thick and definitely can stand up to the repeat usage of any child. With only a few pages, it won't be long before children are reading along with ease.
