Two 2012 Board Books

Five Little Monkeys Jump in the Bath. Eileen Christelow. 2012. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. 20 pages.

Five little monkeys eat ice cream.
Lick, slurp, slop, drip, drop.
Then five little monkeys see a mud puddle!
Slippy, sloppy, goopy, gloppy!
Five icky, sticky, yucky, mucky monkeys!
"Oh, no!" gasps Mama.
"Bath time for monkeys!"

I enjoyed Eileen Christelow's new book, Five Little Monkeys Jump in the Bath. These five monkeys have a way of getting messy and sticky and staying that way--no matter how many times the Mama cleans them up! The text is very descriptive and quite playful! If you have a little one who loves Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed, this one might work well for you!

Other books in the series include: Five Little Monkeys Sitting in a Tree, Five Little Monkeys Go Shopping, Five Little Monkeys Play Hide and Seek, Five Little Monkeys Wash the Car, Five Little Monkeys Bake A Birthday Cake, Five Little Monkeys With Nothing to Do, and Five Little Monkeys Reading in Bed.

Trains Go. Steve Light. 2012. Chronicle Books.16 pages.

The freight train goes, Squeak clang ting bing bing bing!
The streamliner goes, WoWoo Woooooo Woooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
The mountain train goes, Trip trap fuff puff trip trap fuff puff trip trap fuff puff!

Eight noisy trains are introduced to little train lovers in Steve Light's board book, Trains Go. (He's also the author of Trucks Go.) The illustrations are wonderful--very bright and bold; and the language is very loud and playful!  The eight trains introduced are as follows: a freight train,  a streamliner, a mountain train, a speed train, an old steam train, a diesel train, a big steam train, and a caboose.

Other train books your little one may enjoy: Roger Priddy's My Big Train Book, Roger Priddy's Noisy Trains, June Sobel's The Goodnight Train, and Lucy Cousin's Maisy's Train.

I read both of these for a book committee I am on and thought both were great. Kids like books that make noise the way these do.
