What did you like about the book? This little board book showcases familiar items and their words. Each page opening contains settings and ideas that are perfect for the littlest readers to identify – familiar places such as home, the park and the farm, toys and games, colors, food etc. Adorable clothed non-gendered animals in bright, happy colors populate the book, which of course ends with bedtime and a little crocodile drifting off to sleep after going to the potty, taking a bath, and brushing their teeth.
