1 one fin
2 two eyes
3 three fish
1 one tail
2 two faces
3 three sea horses
An ocean-themed board book about counting from one to three. It's bright, colorful, simple. The illustrations feature fish, turtles, sea horses, and whales. Overall, I like the "big flaps," however, I'm not sure about the biggest 'big flap' that unfolds more like a pop-up from a pop-up book. Flaps and little ones seem to do okay, pop-ups not as well with little hands. But for the most part, I think it works.
1 one foot
2 two flippers
2 two penguins
1 one neck
2 two faces
2 two giraffes
A zoo-themed board book about counting from one to two. It is bright, colorful, oh-so-simple. The animals in the illustrations are fun: penguins, giraffes, monkeys, and elephants. The final flap reveals a Mom and her son at the zoo having fun. Most of the flaps, I think, will be fine. There is the one pop-up flap which I'm less sure about, but, for the most part I think this one works well.

what a long car!
ding! ding! bicycle
A touch-and-feel book about transportation. There is no story to this board book, just vocabulary--words identifying each method of transportation (ambulance, fire engine, police car, truck, van, hot air balloon, plane, etc.) The book is large--more the size of a traditional picture book than a board book. It's a very busy book.
Race car, race car, zoom, zoom, go!
Around the racetrack, never slow.
Turn left, turn right, now just fly!
Take the lead and speed on by.
A simple, rhyming text about the thrill of racing. Fun size and shape, colorful, and the rhyming isn't bad at all. This would be a fun one to share with little ones. Perhaps easier to share with little ones that Go! Go! Go! since it actually has a story to it.
