'I Can Do It Myself' and 'Now I am Big' by Stephen Krensky and Sara Gillingham. These babies stopped me in my tracks! I got both, as you can see, one for my toddler nephew and one for a baby girl of some dear friends.
The graphics are so pop! And bright! And cheerful and fun and I think they'd be Very Engaging to a baby or toddler. And who wouldn't be impressed at learning how to blow one's nose? I'm still impressed when I blow my own nose and it doesn't wind up all over my face. I so vividly remember last year and the year before really trying to get Julia to understand the concept of blowing air through her nostrils, not her mouth. I'm not sure she's got it yet. She does, but she blows so daintily and gently that nothing comes out.
I digress. But nose blowing, yeah, that's a SKILL. Which these darling little board books so happily demonstrate for us, all the small-yet-big toddler accomplishments in a tiny tot's world. Totally, totally impressed that Target had these. Oh Target. Could I love you ANY MORE than I already do??
