Read, Read, Read, said the Baby: This Book by Kathryn Madeline Allen, illustrated by Lizzy Doyle

Bright, colorful pictures illustrate a plethora of things in this cheery little board book. Spreads contain letters, numbers, shapes, colors, opposites, animals, fruit, and vegetables. The final spread shows everyone and everything together in party mood.

The pictures are bright and exciting; a yellow one, pink two, and purple three, all with eyes, juggle colored balls. A blue elephant tromps across the page. A cheery orange carrot, complete with eyes and tongue, lifts smiling green peas on a yellow bar. Bugs dance with against a purple background with a checkered disco ball above.

The book is a sturdy square, about 5x5 inches. Although there is no plot, this is still a delightful choice for babies and caregivers. Little ones can enjoy pointing out the different concepts while older toddlers will want to talk about what the different creatures are doing.

Verdict: A fun addition to your board book collection.
