Tea With Oliver by Mika Song is an adorable story!  The book uses simple language, provides perfect opportunities for WH questions, and has a ton of silly sounds waiting to be imitated! Remember sound imitation comes before word imitation! 

Say Zoop is a wonderful new book from Herve Tullet (author of Press Here). I love this book because it promotes following directions and imitation of sounds! Remember kids are more likely to imitate gestures & sounds before they imitate words! Best news: your little one will love it!
