It seems my son has been really enjoying interactive books this week. We picked this book up at an Usborne stall at a garden party last weekend and Isaac has really enjoyed it. The “flip flap” title refers to the fact that there are flaps UNDER flaps or should that be flips under flaps…. or flaps under flips ?? Anyways, its a riot for little fingers and inquisitive minds. My sons fave page shows the history of cars complete with a little fold out driving manual from years ago! Too cute and also very informative! Big mummy thumbs up!

Isaac’s preschool theme this term is Global Garden and he’s been loving reading this book there so mummy decided to buy him his own copy. Its really a lovely book which encourages lots and lots of participation with flaps and slidey bits (technical term I’m sure!) and pop outs. It’s a lovely light hearted introduction to where all the things around us come from, but a little short on detail.

Isaac received this book from a neighbour whose daughter has outgrown it and has really been enjoying it. Its a really cute tale and a perfect wind down for before bed with stunning  illustrations from Debi Gliori.

    Thanks for joining WMCIR! All three of your reads look fantastic. I have to look for global garden, it might work so well with our geography hops.
