1. COOKIES!: AN INTERACTIVE RECIPE BOOK
From the New York Times Best-Selling illustrator that brought us The Bad Seed and The Good Egg, Hike is a (mostly) wordless picture book about a father and son that go for a hike in the woods. The gorgeous illustrations capture the beauty of nature as we join them on their adventure. The pair climbs to the top of a mountain where they continue the family tradition of planting a tree.

5. MY FAVORITE COLOR: I CAN ONLY PICK ONE?
New York Times best-selling author, Aaron Becker brings us My Favorite Color. A book that blends design, literacy and science into one very visually pleasing board book. The translucent windows throughout the book blend and change the colors as you turn the page. With so many beautiful color combinations how could you pick just one favorite color?

9. ALPHABET STREET
This fun and colorful alphabet book written by Jonathon Emmett and illustrated by Ingela P. Arrhenius is sure to be a toddler favorite! The fold-out lift-the-flap pages each feature a 2-story building along the street. The author uses each letter of the alphabet in creative ways. The illustrations are colorful and modern and my kids love folding the pages out at the end to show the entire street.
