Detailed illustrations and simple text are paired within a board book format to introduce young readers to opposite words within the narrative framework of taking a dog for a walk.
I love that we always kick off the 31 lists with board books. What could be cheerier or more inspiring? This year, I’m adding in a selection of pop-up books for spice. And, since board books don’t always skew young, I split this list into two separate categories; one for babies and one for toddlers. 2018 Board Books: For Toddlers I’m no dog person. I take a canine as easily as I can leave them, but I’m not made of stone. This book is adorable (baby Bernese mountain dogs are, by definition, cute incarnate), but also highly informative since it’s technically an opposites book.
