Board Book Bonanza

Around this time, my family made the big move from Wisconsin to Indiana, where I immediately scoped out the area libraries.  The one in downtown Fort Wayne is incredible!  Check out their children’s section…

And so, I continued my journey through the world of board books and Easy Readers, making such discoveries as Allan and Jessica Ahlberg’s Goldilocks Variations


Goldilocks1It’s literary inception!

…and Hervé Tullet’s meta-tastic Help! We Need a Title!


Tullet is the author of the Let’s Play Games books, which encourage children to join in the storytelling — using their hands to make finger worms or to follow a winding, looping line (with eyes closed) — and even imagine their own stories.

You know what’s also fun?  Mix ‘n matching all the crazy hairstyles in Split Ends, by Nick Sharratt.

That’s all for now, but I definitely plan to review more board books & ERs in the future.  Any new ones you’d recommend, or favorite older titles?

1/100th of an Altairian dollar for your thoughts?
