My one-year-old daughter is at the perfect age and stage for picture books. I like to make sure we’ve got fun, educational and because of our faith religious books for her to gaze about and listen to me read. Recently, we were introduced to Helen Dardik’s take on The Story of Noah’s Ark. This newly released picture book caught my attention and that of my youngest child right away with its fun looking vibrantly colored illustrations.

The Big Look Bible Book is geared toward babies up to children eight years old though I feel it’s best suited for babies to around age six. It’s moderate board book format meaning the pages aren’t paper but they aren’t really thick board like pages either but somewhere in the middle. The book has your general rectangular outside shape with rounded corners but on the inside, each story features its very own shaped pages. Shaped pages add a fun element to the book, in my opinion.
All Things Bright and Beautiful: Make Believe Ideas by Thomas Nelson is a sweet book.

I like the fact the books features photo images without. I believe it helps my baby make real life connections easier. In the book, there are bunnies, teddy bears, people. puppies, kittens, stuffed animals friends, and mirror page for baby to see themselves. The textures are many and included the feel of a basket, soft fluffy fur, a warm sweater, and so forth. Some of the things to touch sparkle and shine catching babies interest further.
