All 3 of my kids have loved these books right around age 2. The series is by Debbie Bailey, Pictures by Susan Huszar. They are short, educational/informative books about everyday people, events, and things.
These are some of the titles we have checked out right now...
"Shoes" has especially been a HUGE hit with all of my kids!
And and almost 2 year-old is really enjoying "Happy Birthday."
