Read, Read, Read, said the Baby: Tickle my ears by Jorg Muhle

This was so perfect and adorable, I can't wait to use it in baby storytime!

A little rabbit, clad in a blue bathrobe, goes through his night-time rituals with the help of the readers who are invited to clap their hands, fluff his pillow, kiss him goodnight, and pull up the blanket. I loved that this leaves all the actions up to the kids' imagination; it doesn't include any movable parts or pieces.

The illustrations are simple and sweet, showing a fluffy white bunny and his night-time accoutrements against a simple beige background.The color scheme is red, blue and white with blushes of pink.

Verdict: A perfect bedtime story and also great for leading a baby storytime in simple actions from clapping to a little hopping. Don't forget to pair it with a washcloth bunny rabbit and a felt blankie!
