MY TIDBITS

With colorful illustrations, this series is sure to delight the youngest readers as they venture into a up-beat and full of life animal kingdom.

These board books are great for small hands and so bright, they're sure to grab attention. The animals inside are full of excitement and joy, radiating fun from page to page. These animals are ready for adventure and play mixed with a tad bit of silliness too.

One type of animal is presented on every page, and they are active animals too. The text is short and to the point, giving each animal a single trait which is easy to understand. The whole thing is in rhyme, making it super fun to repeat over and over again.

This is a lovely way to take kids through the vastness of the animal kingdom, while keeping the main focus on pure fun. There are animals kids will recognize as well as more exotic ones. And the pages invite to peering through again and again and again.
