Little ones love to listen to stories over and over. There are times, I admit, that I have wanted to hide a book rather than read it for the 14th ( or 40th) time in a day. Here are some board book series to mix in with old favorites.
All Aboard! California: A Landscape Primer by Haily Meyers and Kevin Meyers
This is the current favorite book around our place. The state of California is shown in all its glory as a train travels through each region. Each double page spread is illustrated with bright graphic art showing what can be found in different areas around the state including the city, desert, farmland, ad mountains. Fun!
Other books in this geographical series include All Aboard! National Parks: A Primer, and All Aboard! Pacific Northwest: A Recreational Primer.
The Lil’ Libros series introduces Latin American culture through colors, numbers, shapes, and first words in both Spanish and English.
Counting With / Contando Con Frida by Patty Rodriguez and Ariana Stein

It is never too early to introduce children to classic literature and the BabyLit series does just that in a fun and engaging way.
