I received these books from the publisher for review. This does not impact the content of my review.

I adore picture books.

Cute kids books may be a kryptonite for me. Board books especially. They are usually super sweet, full of colour, ridiculous situations, and always offer up something to make you smile. I have a whole shelf of kids books in my living room that I tell myself is for when my friends with kids come over…but we all know it’s actually because I love them.

So, when I had the opportunity to read two new board books by the fabulous Jennifer Sattler (author/illustrator of the Chick ‘n’ Pug books which I love) and share them with you — I couldn’t resist.

Look below for some printable colouring sheets for your little to enjoy and for your chance to win a copy of each of these adorable books and a tote bag!

Dirty Birdies by Jennifer Sattler

One curious birdie playing in a mud puddle leads to four new friends, all getting into trouble! Toddlers learn to count from 1 to 5 with Dirty Birdies, where birds of all feathers get down and dirty, and then clean again.

This cover is so much fun!

Here are a couple of inside pages to show you how colourful this book is:

One dirty birdie - inside page from Dirty Birdies by Jennifer Sattler

Five dirty birdies - inside page from Dirty Birdies by Jennifer Sattler

I love the colour in this book! And how each little birdie is a different colour, size, and shape and  gets dirty in a different way. This could be a fun book to read once spring arrives and you can go outside with your kiddo to splash.

Jungle Gym by Jen Sattler

Who’s up and who’s down? Who’s in and who’s out? With a cast of characters including a zebra, toucan, a giraffe, a hippo, and more, everyday concepts are humorously demonstrated by animal friends on a playground.

There’s even more colour and a ton of different animals to talk about in this second book!

Here are a few inside pages to give you an idea of this silly, fun book:

I want to sit with my nephews in my lap and point out animals in this book. We’ll practice the names of the animals and the sounds they make!
