I fell in love with the beautiful illustrations and I’m a sucker for lift the flap books (well any clever, interactive children’s books really). The illustrations are so detailed and I love all the cut out bits that use something on the next page as part of the illustration on the current page. Every time I pick it up I notice something new.
The book teaches children about animal habitats; from farms to woodlands and deserts to snow. Without even realising, young readers will learn about where animals live and other details such as tadpoles grow in to frogs and bees live in hives and make honey.
For the moment, I am reading it to Poppet and pointing things out in the pictures. She is enjoying lifting the flaps and turning the chunky pages. I will be buying a copy for my daughter when she is a bit older and I look forward to helping her learn about animals through this book.
I am linking up this week with Carie at Space for the butterflies and Damson lane. Please do pop other to their blogs by clicking on the buttons below to link up what you’ve been reading with your children or to get some ideas.
