Tickle My Ears, Jorg Muhle’s previous book with Gecko Press, was a hit in our household. My daughter loved helping get Little Rabbit ready for bed by tucking him tickling his ears, rubbing his back and tucking him in. It’s a great interactive book to help all little ones get ready for bed. Gecko Press now brings us the gorgeous Bathtime for Little Rabbit.
Bathtime for Little Rabbit is another interactive board book perfect for helping your little ones with their bath and bedtime routines. In this book you call Little Rabbit for his bath, help to wash his ears, help to keep the water out of his eyes and make sure he’s nice and dry.
Little Rabbit is absolutely adorable and you and your little one will love helping him with his bath. It’s a book that subconsciously teaches them about caring for others because you’ve got to make sure that you’re gentle and kind. You’ll also have a bit of a laugh too, especially when you have to blow on the page to dry Little Rabbit off. The illustrations are soft and the text sparse making this the perfect read for newborns right through to preschoolers.
Grab a copy of both Tickle My Ears and Bathtime for Little Rabbit for some perfect bedtime reading with your little rabbits.
As a father of a 15 month old I’m always on the look out for some great board books to share with my girl. She will certainly let me know if she doesn’t like a book (either by pointing to a different book or just getting off my lap and walking away). We love going to the library and she’ll usually choose books that she likes the look of. Every night we have 2 or 3 stories just before she gets into bed and I love having a bedtime book, one that signals it’s time for bed. Our favourite bedtime book at the moment is the brilliant board book from Gecko Press, Tickle My Ears by Jörg Muhle.
Tickle My Ears is the perfect book for bedtime. It is very interactive, with lots of signs imbedded in this simple story that tell the child that it’s time for bed. It is short and sweet but fun at the same time. You have to help Little Rabbit get ready for bed by doing things like fluffing up his pillow (by shaking the book), tickling his ears, stroking his back and tucking him in (by turning the page). We read this book almost every night so my girl has got the hang of it and will stroke Little Rabbit’s ears and rub his back. There are some things I have to do myself, like saying ‘Hoppity Hop’ to help him get ready. The great thing about this book is that it will work for different age groups, whether your baby is talking or just sitting quietly listening to you read. I love the interactivity of the book and it is simply adorable watching my daughter stroke the rabbit’s back. I never get tired of reading it and neither does she.
Get your hands on a copy of Tickle My Ears and make this brilliant book part of your child’s bedtime routine.
