Good morning guys! Well, maybe afternoon in some places 😉 I finally found a camera cord and can unload all the post pictures. This post is sponsored by Little Brown and Company. They contacted me to see if I’d like to review some adorable new board books by Tad Carpenter. I jumped at the chance, because Little, Brown and Company is awesome. Also because Charlie is at an age where she is really getting excited about books and reading! For those of you unfamiliar with Tad Carpenter, here’s a quick review:
Tad Carpenter is an illustrator, designer and teacher living in Kansas City, Missouri. He has worked with clients ranging from Target, Macy’s, and Rayban to Nick Jr., Adobe, kidrobot and Hallmark Cards, just to name a few. His work has been shown in galleries, on products, and in books all over the world. You can visit his website at tadcarpenter.com. (He also just happens to be an awesome guy!)
These two books are crazy adorable. The illustrations are so cute, I just can’t get enough of them! There are two of these I Say, You Say books; one for sounds and one for opposites.
The pages flip open to reveal a surprise!
Now it’s time for the Toddler Test. Will Charlie like them? She likes to turn the pages herself, so I popped her into a chair with the books. First she had to finish munching on socks.
Once the socks got boring, she started taking a peek at the book.
She was a big fan.
And then she re-discovered her socks on her toes 😉
Oh, and not only did they send me these two awesome books, I was thrilled to see two of his limited edition prints inside! It was serendipity, because they totally fit in with the yellow/pink/orange theme I’m doing Charlie’s big girl room in.
In fact, it even looks perfect with my Ana White signed Born to Build print!
I can’t wait to hang them in her room! And for a bonus, here’s the fabulous video from their website. I definitely recommend picking these up toda!y
