I’m a Dirty Dinosaur

I'm a Dirty Dinosaur

I’ll be completely honest with you, I didn’t see the allure of I’m a Dirty Dinosaur at first. Well, apparently Ava was just a little too young when we first read it because now she LOVES it! And of course, that means I love it too.

She smiles so big and dances side to side along with the sing-song words. I’m a Dirty Dinosaur has fun illustrations made from real mud and exciting action words in the story kids can even play out, like stomp, stomp, stomp!

This is now one of our favorite read-alouds that we own and it always comes down from the shelf when Ava’s wearing her dino PJs. We ended up reading it 3 times in a row last week!

We will probably have the follow-up book, I’m a Hungry Dinosaur, in our collection sooner than later.

Are you there little fox?

Are you there little fox?

This book never fails to put me in a good mood. It takes us on a journey to find little fox and I often find myself reading it in a silly voice. You think you’re going to see little fox on the next page, but no! Those ears are bat ears, that little tail was actually a squirrel!!!

We also offer an elephant and bunny version in this series. Why is fox my favorite? Because he ends up with mama at the end! (Elephant is with daddy and bunny is with his friends, in case you were wondering). We read this book quite often, both enjoying the moment of fun it offers. It’s one Ava likes to flip through more than once, I’m guessing she loves the bright colors.

Peek Inside the Zoo

Peek Inside the Zoo

This is one of the newer additions to our home library. Although Ava is probably just a little young for it still, she definitely loves it already! We just sit with her until she’s a little more gentle, we don’t want any ripped gorilla arms around here.

The beautiful illustrations in our Peek Inside series include cutouts, peek-throughs, and flaps for children to interact with as you read. The flaps are sturdy and each page is packed full of information, making learning about the animals so much fun for little ones. Peek under leaves and behind doors to find noisy parrots, cheeky monkeys, very tall giraffes and lots more.

You can also Peek Inside animal homes, a tree, dinosaurs, nighttime, space, the farm, garden, the jungle, and the sea! We also offer our beautiful Peek Inside Fairy Tales for just a few dollars more – Beauty & the Beast, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty and coming soon – Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs, and the Nutcracker.

Slide & See Under the Sea

Slide & See Under the Sea

This is our most durable book by far! We carry our Slide and See everywhere. It’s perfect for the car, at restaurants, even when I’m just trying to make dinner on those fussy evenings!

This is an interactive book, but I imagine making up stories because there are such fun animals on every page! This is great to gift long before a child’s first birthday. Our Slide and See is pretty much the only book Ava is allowed for an extended period of time, unattended. I have found a few teeth marks in the corner, but unlike a few of our other books, this one is still completely intact!

The fun and simple sliding mechanisms on each page help develop fine motor skills and offer hours of fun! The illustrations are bright and beautiful too, our little lady loves playing with this book.

Other books available in the Slide & See series include Animals, Dinosaurs, Farm, Christmas, Zoo and brand new this June — Nighttime!

All Better!

all better

This is one of UBAM’s most-loved books by children everywhere and I am so happy we finally added it to our home library!

The story is short and sweet – Dog hurt his foot, Sheep scratched her tummy and Bear sat on a splinter! What will make everything all better? Clean it, kiss it and put a bandage on it! Young readers delight in the five animal friends’ misadventures and are eager to help make things “all better” with the five reusable and repositionable stickers.

However, this book also offers so much more! It helps kids with matching colors and animals. Repetition: The sing-song words on each page are essentially the same, and your child will memorize them and be able to “read” the book on their own, or to their little brothers and sisters! The book is hands-on and interactive! Children can work on fine-motor skills, and have fun with the “stickers” over and over again (If the cling-on stickers lose their stickiness, just run them under cold water to be revived!).

All Better! also teaches children compassion and kindness.We offer Little Bear Needs Glasses as well, which teaches children about being helpful and coming later this year, Kisses, Cuddles, and Good Night.
