This book is a great book to read as a goodnight book - to soothe your baby to bed.

Meow..Mooo..Roarr! Let your imagination run wild with these amazing animal books.

Why Our Experts Love It


We love this toddler book because the playful question and answer text invites children and adults to read aloud together.

Repetition of key phrases helps preschoolers take the first step toward reading readiness.

And the game like format makes it easy and fun to discover more about the world of nature and to learn the common names of some familiar (and some not so familiar) animals.

A bonus page at the back of the book lists the correct but sometimes surprising names of animal babies, their parents, and groups. Eric Carle is the creator of many beloved picture books for very small children.

Here he offers a beautiful way for parents and children to share the knowledge that love crosses all boundaries and ties all creatures on this earth together.

Obviously this toddler book makes a great gift...collect all of his classics!
  • Reading with your child is a great way to spend quality time.  Reading is an important activity to foster language skills and help your child learn new information.  Long before a child can speak, an infant is learning the melodies and sounds of language. They are learning to understand words and pair pictures of objects with the name of the object.  In addition to language skills, reading with your child helps improve their attention and builds curiosity.  We want children of all ages to hear ‘adult, complex sentences’ so alternate reading a book as you typically would (reading all the written words) with the tips described below.
  • Infants – 2 year olds: point to the pictures and emphasize the name of each picture (one word at a time).  Your intonation and melody plays an important role in your child’s attention to the book at this age.
  • 2-3 year olds – read the story as written but ask questions along the way to ensure that your child understands what is happening in the story.  This also allows them to be active “readers”
  • 3-4 year olds – ask your child to tell you about the pictures/predict the story first.  Then read the words on the page. This is a great way to help foster their story-telling abilities.
  • 4-5 year olds – at this age children begin to gain interest in the letters of the alphabet and the sounds they make.  Point to some of the words as you read to support this interest.  At the end of a book, you and your child can make up a different ending OR try and add to the story.
  • 5-6 year olds – Your child will begin to read at this age, generally by memorization of sight words.  Keep a running list of the words that your child successfully recognizes.  They will feel great pride as the list grows longer and longer.
