This is another nephew-inspired pick. Ethan Long's Tickle the Duck is a fun book for toddlers. The duck in question begs the reader not to tickle him and he helpfully points out which areas the reader should NOT tickle. The tickle spots are of various textures such as a rubbery foot. The following page then has the duck laughing uproariously as the toddler has inevitably not heeded the duck's warnings not to tickle him. Very fun and interactive. I just saw that Long will have another book, Stop Kissing Me, due out in August that will probably go on the list for Christmas presents.
