Ten Little Puppies - A Book Review

I've been asked, "What age should I start reading to my child?" My answer is always, "When they are babies." They may not appear to be listening, but they love the sound of your voice.

Babycenter is a great source to go to for early baby stages. They mentioned that you can start reading to your child even when they are in the womb. Babies that are read to begin to understand words more so than babies that are not read to. That doesn't mean they'll talk earlier. It just means that they will understand what you are saying better. With books they see the connection between words and pictures.

When shopping for early readers look for fabric books, plastic bath time books and board books. You want books that can take a beating.

I was lucky enough to review a board book called Ten Little Puppies (Eyeball Animation) By Jim Harris and Marian Harris.

My son couldn't of been more happy to get his own mail! We were both sick with strep throat last week; our moods were not very chipper. When he opened his book, a smile went all the way across his face.

As soon as my son Isaak was well enough to go back to preschool Ten Little Puppies went in his backpack for Show and Tell. The moving eyeballs were the talk of the classroom.

The illustrator did a wonderful job filling the pages with a lot of visuals, yet still maintaining that one focal point.

Cost: $16.99.
ISBN: 9780740784811

This book is filled with fun puppies, lots of bright colors and fun eyeballs throughout!
