The Best Infant/Toddler Book Ever

I thought I’d introduce everyone to one of the greatest (if not THE greatest) infant/toddler book in the world. Introducing “Sesame Street’s First Look and Find: What’s Different?”
The cover is glossy and puffy, making it a very comfortable book to hold, and durable for when your kid spills (milk/juice/lunch) all over it and the surrounding floor.
The pages are also durable which make this book one of our only still intact after more than a year of reading to our lil’ one.
The book offers all sorts of things for your kid to focus on, and the emphasis can change as your child ages. Things to emphasize/learn:
- Names of the characters (what kid doesn’t like Elmo?!)
- Objects (tree, fence, animals, etc.)
- Finding the objects in the pictures
- And eventually even finding the differences between the pictures. Finding the 10 differences between the pictures will also keep adults entertained (really!).
Here are the pages:
Backyard Scene with Baby Bear, Rosita, and Elmo
(Is Elmo going to fry those ants with the magnifying glass?!)
Community Garden Scene with Snuffy, Elmo, and Big Bird
Those are some healthy lookin’ veggies
Park Scene with The Count, Rosita, Elmo, and Abby
Why isn’t The Count reading a book about numbers?
Pond Scene with Elmo, Betty Lou, and Barkley
Splashing in puddles - who’s going to clean up those messy clothes?!
Butterfly Scene with Elmo, Cookie Monster, and Zoe
Meh. Butterflies are overrated.
Bird Scene with Bert, Ernie, and Elmo
Birds are overrated.
Camping Scene with Zoe, Elmo, and Grover
Camping is overrated.
But the book is not overrated. It can’t be. We’ve got a couple of little shelves filled with books, and we let our kid pick the book he wants to read. It’s almost always this one.
FYI - there’s one more turn of the page that reveals what the ten differences are between each of the pictures.
Here’s the link to Amazon where you can buy the book. You will not regret this purchase. Happy reading.
