Update: A big thanks to everyone who shared their favorite animal-themed books! We assigned a number to each comment and used random.org to generate two random numbers. The numbers were 7 and 27. This means the winning commenters were “Gracenawati” and “Magdalena_B”! Please contact us through our website to let us know where we should send your CD! Congrats!
Since we’re having so much fun with our animals topic this month, we wanted to share with you a top ten list of our favorite animal-themed picture books. We’d also love to know what your favorite animal books for young learners are! Just leave a comment below with your favorite animal-themed book or books, and we’ll enter you in a drawing to win a copy of our Super Simple Songs – Animals enhanced CD. We’ll select two winners at random from the comments section.
The fine print: One entry per person please and to be eligible, your comment must be posted here on the blog, not on Facebook. If you live somewhere we’re not able to ship to, we’ll send a download version instead. Contest ends April 22, 2013 at 12pm PST.
Here are our favorites!
10. Animals Should Definitely Not Wear Clothing
While most of the books on this list are appropriate for preschoolers and younger, we like this one for preschool and up. Great for introducing and reviewing animals and clothing.
9. Whose Baby Am I?
This book has beautiful, warm illustrations of baby animals. Turn the page to see the baby together with its parent.
Practice parts of the face with this Valentine’s Day worksheet.
