0 Books for the first 24 months : Books with repetitive text

Part of the #Write31Days challenge.
Book categories for the first 24 months.

Books with repetitive text
This is another hit category as it offers the chance to the little ones to start picture reading. Books which have the same set of lines being repeated often are a joy to discover the capability of the child to say out those sentences easily - a moment of pride for the child and the parent, this!

These books , when read to, is best when paused at the repeated text and prompting the child to say it in baby-talk! So many picture books which offer scope for this in excellent style.

Our picks:

The text , "Did Pete cry?, Goodneess No! He kept walking along and singing his song " followed by the "I Love by White shoes.." is great in this category. We have raved about Pete the Cat in the category of Singable, Danceable too. Our detailed review here.

Have you seen my Cat ? : Eric Carle.
 A boy who loses his cat goes around looking for his cat. The text "Have you seen my cat? and "This is not my cat" is repeated all through and is an adorable classic.
