Young Reader Reaction: My son loved this book - and In the City, too! He liked making the sounds of the animals and naming them,

Adult Reader Reaction: This is a sturdy book that holds up to hands-on play. Being able to go back and forth with the accordian and letting the book "stand up" added to the fun.

Pros: Young children will love exploring and playing with these books.

Cons: None.

Borrow or Buy: Buy! This is a book you can give your kids and they'll play with for hours.


Educational Themes: This is a book for toddlers and early preschool-aged kids. You can explore objects and give things labels; look for colors; make comparisons (lions v. tigers v. your pet cat); and count, too. The stickers can be used on the book or in other projects you want to create.
