Give Me a Snickle!

Orca. Apr. 2022. 20p. Board $10.95. ISBN 9781459828704.
PreS-K–A charming board book that names a feat children perform regularly, creating portmanteaus, or the blending of two words to make a new one. The text starts with, “A snuggle...A tickle...Both at once? That’s a snickle!” Each spread features a real picture of a young child and caregiver on the recto page, while the verso page introduces the new word. The rhyming cadence makes this title a great one for baby story times and one-on-one readings. Older children will love it, too.
VERDICT A first purchase for all libraries, and not limited to the conventional board book audience.
