All of these books are terrific, thank you for sharing. I particularly liked When the Waterhole Dries up for its clever illustrations using “sneak peek”. Those details make books fun interactive and the ones kids want to see and hear over and over again. All of the books in the list are playful and make you smile. Thanks again!
