Visually Delightful Board Books

The Wizard of Oz

A magical book for a magical story seems perfectly matched, don’t you agree? Quotes from the characters accompany short summaries of the plot. You’ll see a cyclone, a bike riding neighbor in the sky, Dorothy meeting new friends, and going to the Emerald City. The book finishes with the Wizard of Oz’s scary face and you can almost hear his booming voice say, “I am the Great and Powerful Wizard of Oz.

Your kids will enjoy seeing the different vehicles traveling – bicycles with rotating wheels, race cars zooming, speedboats zipping. The words are simple and could easily be read by beginning readers.

Motorcycles FLY over jumps” and “Racing planes WHOOSH through the air.”

Colors, A Silly Slider Book

Grasp the slider edges on either side and slide up the picture to reveal a new picture and color word. So, on the fish page, slide up and see a new picture and the word “Blue.” It’s fun, it’s active, and it’s educational! If you want a fun book on colors, this is the one for you. From my teacher’s perspective I think this book does an excellent job by making the whole page one color.
