Cricket Media's scaled-down signature mix of words and pictures serves its youngest audience with a delightful baby book format. Its sturdy, non-toxic pages feature colorful short stories, poems, and varied and vibrant illustrations and photographs that reflect the lives of babies and toddlers, offer a closer look at objects, actions, and places (napping, a playground, things that fly), and invite practice in identifying colors, parts of the body, and such concepts as big and little. A "Kim and Carrots" story, featuring a little girl and her toy rabbit, is a regular feature, as is a theme-related "Guide for Caregivers" with tips for read-aloud experiences, fingerplay, and simple crafts to enhance learning and together time.
