Author Al Perkins and illustrator William O'Brian use a boy with a big-eared dog to teach children about ears and the simple sounds we hear all day. All of the Bright and Early Books in the Dr. Seuss & His Friends book club that center on body parts are not only highly readable and imaginatively illustrated, but offer children a first lesson on how their bodies work.
Tie-in Activity: Ears can hear music! Let your child make music with toy instruments, tapping along to a favorite song. Or play a sound memory game: Encourage your child to make a short series of sounds with toy instruments, clapping hands, or his voice. Then try to echo those sounds.
