Counting Books You Can Count On. #Owls & #Oscar Oh My!

Babushka was sent the following books for review. All opinions are hers and The Grands.




HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!


Babushka has been scarce around these partes; home life has been super requete busy lately, what with medical meanderings, birthdays and end of school. Pero like todo, there is a positivo.  BB is spending more time with familia, especialmente The Grands.  If you're like Babushka and have little ones about then you'll love reading to them, especialmente if you can do twofers with the libros.  With these books you read while teaching them how to contar. Learning during together time. ESO!!

The first book we're going to highlight se llama 10,9,8…Owls Up Late! 


(Silver Dolphin; ISBN: 9781684121847; $9.99; 26 pgs; Ages 3-5) ten little owls are playing in a tree, hopping and hooting happily. But Mama Owl calls from down in the nest, “It’s bedtime now; it’s time to rest.” Peek through the pages and spot the mischievous owls in this fun counting book, perfect for bedtime! Featuring fun rhyming text, funny illustrations and peek-through die-cut pages.

Este is SURE to become a classic.  The escrito, BB almost calls it lyrics, because one naturally goes into a singsong while reading.  The story, sweet and easy to sympathize is true to life's moments and a madres amor. Illustrations are well done, being detailed and colorful, but not so much so that it jars sleep away.  A definitivo para mimir in Baushka's house. You'll enjoy this bedtime boardbook with your little ones, for sure to be a favorito.


Next is already a classic-bueno, the characters are.  Sesame Street: 5 Little Rubber Duckies




 (Studio Fun; ISBN: 9780794441197; $11.99; 12 pgs) is educational fun for little ones 2 and up, as they learn their numbers with Elmo and friends!

Join Ernie and his friends on Sesame Street as they try to find five little rubber duckies in this fun, hands-on board book! With touch and trace elements perfect for little hands and plastic duckies to push and count along, this book is the perfect story time activity for early learners. Also available in Spanish (5 Patitos de Hule)!

Of course BB ordered the one in Spanish. Ahora eso si, Dr. J read it in Spanish? JU SO FONII!!! Pero seguimos tratando; you can never give up on teaching them another language. At least they'll hear the way it's supposed to sound when they decide they want to speak it.


So here's to a summer of family time learning and reading.  BB's looking forward to it.  

Hope these libritos help make yours fun and feliz.
