Stick by Andy Pritchett
In this colorful picture book, it’s not what you say, it’s how you say it. A puppy wants nothing more than to find someone to play with, but each animal has its own idea of fun. The entire text is only six words, which makes this book ideal for toddlers and preschoolers. The illustrations help tell the story, and each animal’s page is in a different, bold color.
Encourage your child to identify the colors and then talk about how the animal on each page is feeling. Point to and identify the letters in the word “stick” each time it is repeated in the book. Repetition is a great way to practice vocabulary and will get your child ready to read.
