Featuring a collection of familiar farm animals, this sturdy selection offers lift-the-flap fun that will keep kids guessing.
The clever design and layout create a visually striking, interactive treat. The left-hand pages display a large, close-up photo of an animal—beginning with a duck—against a white background punctuated by brightly colored word balloons reading, “Can you match me?” and “quack!” A simple sentence completes the page: “Lift and see!” The right-hand pages are divided horizontally into three strips, each bearing a close-up image of an animal’s skin, fur or feathers with a liftable flap in the center. Readers must guess which close-up belongs to the featured animal. On the duck spread, lifting a red-and-black flap reveals a ladybug, while a feathery-looking flap in shades of gray conceals a hedgehog. Hiding beneath the fuzzy yellow flap is the correct match: the fluffy duckling. Following the same format, a companion volume, Lift and See Animals (978-1-58925-613-2), features wilder critters, including a tiger, elephant, macaw, zebra and giraffe. The littlest readers will simply want to lift the flaps to discover which animals are hiding underneath, while older tots will enjoy the challenge of finding the match.
Stimulating, interactive fun in a chunky board book that will stand up to lots of use. (Board books. 1-4)
