Board Books for the Youngest Readers

Hello, Rain!

When raindrops begin to fall, a young family pulls on boots and heads outside to play and explore nature. As the clouds grow darker, they return home to wait out the storm where it is safe, warm, and dry. Charming watercolor illustrations and lyrical text celebrate the fun we can have when it rains.

Hello, Garden!

Winner: 2022 Gold Medal, IBPA Benjamin Franklin Award

The sun is up and it’s time to explore the natural world right outside your door. Caterpillars wiggle and butterflies fly as you follow a family on a sensory journey through the sights, sounds, and tastes of their garden. Young readers will delight as they imagine their toes touching the dirt and their hands plucking some kale, in this sweet, sensory experience that captures a day enjoying nature while encouraging healthful eating habits and fostering family bonding. From sunup to sundown, there’s always a warm welcome hello to be found among the inhabitants and vegetation of your own backyard.
