Toddler Read Aloud: Spots Feathers and Curly Tails by Nancy Tafuri
Spots Feathers and Curly Tails, written and illustrated by Nancy Tafuri
Nancy Tafuri's books are wonderful read alouds for toddlers. The illustrations are easy to interpret and somehow manage to be bold and soft all at once. In this selection, children are encouraged to guess farm animals based on a close-up view of an identifying feature: a pig's curly tail; a duck's bill. Children love making predictions and having their guesses confirmed on the following page. Soon enough your child will be ready to "read" this one to you.
Target age: 1 - 4
