Classic Retelling
»
This is a good retelling of the classic animal fable - the illustrations are detailed and lend a lot of character to the story. The repetition makes it a great choice for reading aloud and involving your audience. Only downside: that finished cake does not look delicious. But the animals doing housework afterward just about make up for it.
Playful and Educational
»
The bonkers characters and catchy music will capture the attention of little kids. The shows center around a theme and explore it in different ways. This disc contains an episode where Muno's family arrives for a visit and they talk about families, then Muno tries to introduce his friends to his family, but his friends are afraid of meeting new people. The show does a great job of combining lessons about manners and behavior with situations and keeping it light and interesting. Kids love weird stuff and Yo Gabba Gabba totally fits the bill.
Counting Fun

This colorful book is a great opportunity for counting practice. The illustrations are bright and cute and the reasons that the fish swim away are creative - they had my toddler asking "why?" quite a bit. Cute happy ending, too!
Cheerful Summer Celebration

The bright illustrations and the catchy text make this a fun read to get your little one ready for summer. There are lots of things on each page to talk about and little things and colors to identify.
Good Theme

My kid is a little water bug, so I brought this book home to tide us over in between swimming lessons. The books looks and feels a little dated, but the theme is pretty timeless. We enjoyed the illustrations and talking about all the things there are to do with water, from fishing to swimming and splashing.
