2011 Award
( by Sally Symes/ illus. Nick Sharatt, Candlewick $7.99 Score: )

Sean has a big, big yawn while sitting on his mat....and of course everyone knows that yawns are catching. So who got his yawn? A Scruffy Fluffy___ Can you guess? Turn the page and you'll find a cat who in turn has a big, big yawn that is caught by___ You get the idea. There is a cut-out hole on each page, but it offers no visual hints about who is next. The clues are in the words that kids will soon remember as they have you read it again and again.

Play It!

This is What I Like To Do Game
Players take turns leading others as they sing and add a different motion that everyone else must imitate, such as winding your arms, tapping your head, stamping a foot, wrinkling your nose, etc.

This is what I like to do, wouldn’t you like to do it too?
This is what I like to do....
Now we'll all follow you...(and the leader points to someone else.)

Yawn, Sneeze, Hiccup, Cough Game
This is an action memory game.
1. Player one does two actions
A yawn, a sneeze.
2. Player two must do the same two actions in the same order and add one more action.
A yawn, a sneeze, and a cough.
Player one or three repeats what Player two just did and add another action.
A yawn, sneeze, hiccup, hiccup

      The game goes on until the chain is broken and someone forgets. Kids have fun making these silly sounds while they are learning to listen and recall what has been done. It’s a playful way to build listening and memory skills.

        A few years ago we published several books with suggested books and follow-up games that extend the book experience. One collection Read It Play It is for playing with babies and toddlers. The other is for preschool and early school years children. We also did a collection in Spanish, featuring books that were in Spanish or were bilingual.
