Today’s #nonfiction book for kids is an enormous flap book called Peek and Seek, illustrated by the wonderful Charlotte Milner, published via DK Canada.  

This big book is packed with facts about animals and nature and each spread has twenty-eight things to count and find!  Seriously, these flaps are so big they exceeded the limits of my tiny studio!  A lively, sturdy book for small hands filled with rich, colourful illustrations by the talented Charlotte Milner.  A great way to introduce nature through play to toddler & preschool smalls and a wonderful seek and find book for the little kid crowd!  Recommended 3+up!

Today’s #boardbook is the newest in DK Canada’s wonderful “follow the trail” series:  Follow the Trail Winter Wonderland.  This lap sized board book is filled with textured, sparkling lines for smalls to trace with their fingers and packed full of fun facts about winter animals.  Names, shapes, homes and food sources are all explored with a fun finger “maze” at the end.

These bold, high contrast books are great for smalls 6 months and up as they explore colour and texture for the first time.  The finger trails really come to life at around age 2.5 as smalls delight in vocabulary and shape recognition and feel victorious after tasks that play like a game.  

There is something in DK’s finger trail library for every interest and this winter themed edition is great for the holidays.
