We love all Sandra Boynton’s books, but these are particular favourites. Cute illustrations, half a dozen words per page, simple rhymes with lots of opportunities to make animal noises. Ages ½ to 2 years. As you can see they’re well-loved, and apparently delicious. Follow @sandyboynton on Twitter too, she’s lovely, and apparently good friends with “Weird” Al Yancovic and Yo Yo Ma!
