I was instantly drawn to this book by the bright colours. There are only a few words on each page and there certainly isn’t any kind of story to the book. Instead, each page has simple, bright and colourful illustrations, lift the flaps, cut out bits showing part of the page before or after and lots of textures. Down the side, there is a selection of buttons to press that play different sounds/tunes.
Most days, after my daughter has had her nap we curl up on the sofa and explore this book whilst she comes round from her nap. She loves to lift the flaps and run her fingers over the different textures on the page. She seems mesmerised by the sounds and usually has a big smile on her face.
She seems to be particularly drawn to this purple furry tummy of an owl. She likes to run her fingers through it and giggle which I find so cute to watch.Although I usually prefer books with a story, I like this book for letting my little girl be in charge. Since there is no story I’m happy to let her turn the pages in any direction she likes and she seems to love the freedom.
This week I am linking up with Carie at Space for the butterflies. Please do pop other to her blog by clicking on the button below to link up what you’ve been reading with your children or to get some ideas.
