Pat the Bunny by Dorothy Kunhardt
This is a classic interactive book for infants and toddlers. They can play peek-a-boo with Judy, wear mama's ring, feel daddy's scratchy beard, smell the flowers, pat the soft fur on the bunny, and then look at yourself in the mirror. Face it, it has it all for the under 2 year old set. The pictures are simple and the text is relates directly to what is pictured on each page. It's an easy book for children to follow and quickly becomes a favourite of most youngsters that I use it with. My only concern is that the binding in a fairly light weight, plastic spiral piece, and the pages can pull off of it very easily. Where to Buy: Given the longevity of this book, it was originally published in the 1970's, it's pretty easy to find in most stores that carry children's books and toys. There are actually several different versions of the book, but the original is the best!
