The Magic Hat by Mem Fox. A great book to learn about rhyme. A child 54- 60 months is able to tell whether or not two words rhyme (e.g. cat/book vs cat/hat) and Rhymes words (e.g. Tell me something that rhymes with cat). Try reading each page to your child and seeing if they can guess the rhyming animal that the hat will land on. It is also a lovely book for looking at prepositions on/off, over/under/ through. A child 12-18 months begins to use on and off.
The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog! "Woo-hoo, Pigeon! Pigeon finds a hot dog. I like hot dogs 100% Hot dogs taste like hamburgers. The duckling tries to eat pigeon's hot dog. Pigeon doesn't share hot dogs. I share food with Daddy." Beck
