There is nothing more rewarding than reading to your child and seeing the look of awe and wonder in their eyes. And while she may not entirely understand what she is seeing and hearing, I know that my child is learning, absorbing information and picking up various details of what I’m sharing with her in every book we read together. Big little beginnings. These are important moments.
The Hello, World! series from Doubleday is full of various subjects in science and nature. In this particular series, Jill McDonal has authored Solar System, Backyard Bugs, Weather and Dinosaurs – just to name a few! And I am sure you can already guess that our current favorite, Pippa’s favorite, is Solar System.
This wonderful board book is full of information and colorful illustrations that almost guarantees to keep your little ones excited. Those bright colors and the subtle details are what makes this a great early reader. Trace the stars to make constellations, learn which planet is the hottest, and count the rings of Saturn with your littlest explorer! This little board book is a fantastic introduction to the great world beyond us.
