Today’s lift-the-flap counting #boardbook is Animal 123 by talented illustrator Jonny Lambert via DK Canada.
An instant hit at our house, this sturdy, colourful counting book has ALL the flaps: side flaps, top flaps, DOUBLE FLAPS and things to find and count in every scene. Our newly minted 4 year old small protagonist LOVES it on repeat and so I can’t say enough about a great counting book. It starts out a fabulous, high contrast, sturdy and exciting touch & see book for your baby and grows with them through every stage until they are playing seek & find with every page and naming animals like a pro! The DK quality really shines through on this book and Jonny Lambert’s illustrations are a delight!
Recommended 3 months & up for counters & animals lovers big & small!
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 a protagonist favourite: Let’s Find Momo: A Hide and Seek Boardbook by Andrew Knapp via Penguin Random House.
Momo is an internet famous pup who loves to hide! This book features large photographic spreads, on one side, four things you must find (one of them is Momo) and on the other, the image you much search.
Lively, simple and loads of fun, this book is requested on repeat by our three year old small who delights in spotting everything on the list (and the extra teddy bear too!). A wonderful first search & find for toddlers. Recommended 2.5 + up!
We are wrapping our two week DK Canada blitz with this AWESOME Lego City Busy Word Book! Do you love Where’s Waldo AND lego? We do too! This search and find vocabulary book is packed with things to spot and name and each scene has an exciting theme! We might like the rocket ship best.
Definitely for a slightly older small crowd, we place this at a solid 4+up (though our 3yo protagonist enjoyed spotting a few things!). DK, we would love to see a younger, lego duplo version too!
Today’s picture book is Have You Seen My Dragon by house favourite Steve Light via Candlewick Press. This sumptuous, visual feast is a delight and a great seek-and-find PLUS learn to count tale for smalls.
In the heart of the city follow a little boys quest to find his dragon. Black and white illustrations with the counting items in vivid colour this book features one of my FAVOURITE details: a two page spread you have to turn the book sideways to view! LOVE!
Recommended for 3+up plus of course, dragon lovers of all ages.
