Ditty Bird Farm Animal Sound Book
(MeMa Enterprises $16.99)
One of a collection of board books with sounds from Down Under. These have the added interest of having sounds on each page that can be activated with a little finger. The illustrations are bright and bold…not especially beautiful, but clear enough for knowing and naming or talking about. This features familiar farm animals and a few words about the one that moos, baas or quacks on each page. Also fun, Ditty Bird Nursery Rhymes with six familiar rhymes sung by children. The words to the rhymes are on each page and include, Itsy Bitsy Spider; Baa Baa Black Sheep; Hickory Dickory, Dock; Row, Row, Row Your Boat; Old MacDonald, and Twinkle, Twinkle. These will be fun to share and sing along with as you turn the pages of the book together. These books are from Australia so the English does have a bit of a regional sound—a good one! Great gifts for ones and twos.
