Good Morning, Chick by Mirra Ginsburg
This is a cute little farm book, perfect for toddlers. With short, simple, yet descriptive sentences, it’s perfect for pre-readers with short attentions spans. It also has a good prompting system, describing something, “The chick fell in the pond.” Then on the page showing him falling in the pond, it will say, “Like this.” above the action. It’s a good reminder for parents to not only read, but interact with the book.
Pointing out the objects and characters being described by the words is important to your toddler, so that they can make the connection between the two. Often times, they are merely listening to the sound of your voice while looking at pretty pictures, and not really internalizing that a chick is that fluffy yellow guy on the page. This book is a good way to introduce a small picture of farm life, and enjoy a little adventure with a brand new chick.
