Usborne Books: I Love You Animally
While Animally, by Lynn Parrish Sutton, illustrated by Hazel Mitchell is an especially lovely trip through the animal world, from koalas to moths, seagulls to giraffes and through the world of adverbs, from colorfully to slowly, fiercely to freely, it's also a love letter to ... love. To family. Cardstock pages and bright illustrations with lots of white space make it ideal for toddlers who will love the silliness, the message and the time spent reading it together. (It's also a great resource for the classroom, where students are learning about language and parts of speech.) Whether you love them "hugely like a whale," or "shyly like a quail," Animally truly is the perfect laptime book for sharing with all the birdily, bugily, animally loved people in your family. And it's especially nice as a baby shower, new baby or toddler gift.
