Good for talking about what is happening in the pictures and for making connections between their own Daddy and the games played in the pictures.

It's My Birthday
(by Helen Oxenbury, Candlewick $8.99 Score:)

Few events please older toddlers more than a birthday. Any book that centers on this event and especially the cake part it likely to become a favorite. This is an old fashioned kind of toddler tale in which the toddler asks his animal friends to give him each of the ingredients needed. In the end they all share the cake and so can you. The recipe is on the back. Originally published in 1993, this is now redone in a board book that will withstand beginner page-turners. The art makes up for the semi flat cumulative story line. 2 & up

2010 Award
American Babies
(developed by Global Fund for Children, Charlesbridge $6.99 Score:)

A collection of full color photos of a multicultural cast of babies and toddlers. There is a small text but the beauty is in the images on every page. These are taken by many different photographers, every image is a gem. Babies and toddlers like looking at pictures of other children and there's a lot to talk about as you turn the pages, depending on the interest and age of your lapsitter. One time you could find the baby's mouth, eyes, nose, teeth, etc. Another time you can talk about the baby's clothes or expression or what she is eating or looking at. Done on sturdy cardboard stock, this is a book toddlers will enjoy solo after you have shared it a few times. You do need to set the scene by introducing the concepts.
