My mom is the best! As a reading specialist, she finds some of the coolest books for Ayla. This weekend, we were introduced to the Whizzy Winders collection from Igloo Books. Not only do these board books have great illustrations, they also have an attached fold-out track for characters in the story. Simply wind up the included cars or fire truck, place them on the track, and let them go! This is such a fun way to get kids excited about reading. It is also a perfect travel toy. I can’t wait to use it during airport layovers!
My mom gave us Old MacDonald Had a Farm, but this series also includes Little Fire Truck’s Busy Day, Little Tractor, Little Train, Little Racing Car...You get the idea! My only warning would be that the book is designed for ages 3 and up due to the size of the trucks and cars. Ayla is almost two, and loves it, but we do have to supervise just to make sure that little parts don’t end up in her mouth! You can find these at the Igloo Books webpage and on Amazon. The images all come from the Amazon webpage. Make reading an interactive and fun experience for you little one. Check them out and let me know what you think!
