* Little Sleepyhead board book by Elizabeth McPike [coming 5/10/16: http://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/312764/little-sleepyhead-by-elizabeth-mcpike-illustrated-by-patrice-barton/9780399162404/#]. I love the rhyming text & sweet illustrations. Perfect for teaching body parts & a fun bedtime read.

* Blue Boat by Kersten Hamilton [coming 5/17/16 – hardcover: http://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/316824/blue-boat-by-kersten-hamilton-illustrated-by-valeria-petrone/hardcover#; board book: http://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/316824/blue-boat-by-kersten-hamilton-illustrated-by-valeria-petrone/boardbook. The board book has the same content other than the end sheets, credits and this two-page spread in the middle of the hardcover edition (see pic below)]. I love the rhyming text, lots of great descriptive language and action words and colorful illustrations. Perfect for kids who love boats and other transportation. I love using board book versions when I am using a book during modeling on an AAC device. The slightly smaller format and thick easy to turn pages are a good fit for that.

* A Dark, Dark Cave by Eric Hoffman [coming 5/24/16: http://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/314991/a-dark-dark-cave-by-eric-hoffman-illustrated-by-corey-r-tabor/#]. I love the artsy illustrations, rhyming text, great repeated line “dark, dark cave”, lots of descriptive language and spatial concepts and inspiration for imaginative play. As a bonus, the book has the following opportunities for kids yoga: crescent moon, blowing wind, bat, dog, cat, lizard on a rock, roaring, rooftop partners (for the blanket cave), sun stretch & breath, horse, bird.
