Animals Talk and Animals Go by Emily Bolam

Published by Tiger Tales Books


Publishers Summary from Indiebound for Animals Talk: Buzz, moo, and roar! The very young are introduced to animal sounds in this vibrantly illustrated board book that features an embossed bumpy texture on the cover. Full color.

Littlebug Speaks: “Yep, it’s me! I’m back and this time I’ve got a great read for you! I’ve been a bit more chatty recently and my mom hasn’t been able to get me to stop babbling some days. So, I’m sure she showed me these books for two reasons: one, I love animals (doggies are the absolute best!) and two, I love learning new words and how animals talk. Oh, and did I mention both the books are bumpy? It’s so neat!

“My favorite so far is the snapping crocodile! SNAP! SNAP! My mom always pretends to snap the book at me when we’re reading it and it is so funny! Hehe. My favorite one to say has to be the cow, MOO! We even went to see a cow the other day when grandma and grandpa were here and I said ‘Moooo’ to him. It was great! We also saw a peacock and I learned in the second book that they strut. It was so neat!

“These are great books and I know that if you have a littlebug like me, learning to chatter a bunch, they will love these books!”

Mom’s Two Cents: “Emily Bolam is a favorite author around our house. From the bright colors to the simple, but educational texts her books are perfect for little readers. Initially I purchased and reviewed Colors and Counting by Emily, so when the publisher offered these for review I jumped at the chance because I knew Littlebug would love them.

“Each page of these two great books is full of bright beautiful images enhanced with textures that make each picture come alive for a toddler. Also, with only one word per page the opportunity for teaching moments are endless. These are best read out loud with one or more children. To be completely honest, I should almost have the Turkeybird review these books as well, because every time I read either of them to Littlebug he’s right there enjoying every page; sometimes acting them out for her. It’s fantastic! By far one of the best series of beginning books for toddlers out there.”

The1stdaughter Recommends: Ages Birth to 4 years (possibly higher depending on the child). Filled with textures, bright colors and beginning sounds, words and actions these books will have any toddler excited to open them every time.

For the comments: Do you enjoy reading out loud to others? Not necessarily just parents to children. I’d love to know!

    Definitely sharing the love of doggies…they are the best! ^_^ So glad Littlebug is enjoying her reading adventures…..definitely a passion to last a lifetime. (Such a cutie too!)

    As for reading out loud, yes and no. Depends on the book for me…some beg to be given a heard voice, while others you need to in order to give it life (or you life, if you’re a tad tired…hehe)….so I guess ‘yes’ is my answer. ^_^ Great post…and happy reading!

    • Ahhh…thank you thank you! I might be biased, but I think she’s pretty cute too. 🙂

      It does depend on the book I think. Obviously with kiddos it’s a given, but I’ve found a few books recently that I couldn’t help reading outloud to my husband.
