The Ear Book
by Al Perkins, illustrated by Henry Payne
This is such a good one! Eliza has lots of "Bright and Early Board Books," and this one is one of my favorites. The text has great rhythm and rhyme for reading aloud.
Here is an example:
The art style, the characters, and places feel like they are from a quieter time decades ago (this was published in 1968). I like that a lot.
The text has some Dick-and-Jane-esque repetition, with sentences like:
It's good. It's good to hear with ears!
And yet it's not dry to read.
It's very good to read the ear book!
