A triangular board book may seem unusual, but , with its cleverly shaped lift-the-flaps, garnered fans from across the children’s book world. This follow-up to the acclaimed original is full of hidden animals, each making different sounds. Can you figure out who each one is? Lift the unique shaped flaps to see who peeks out!
I reviewed the predecessor for this book last year, and said that it might be an exception to my lift-the-flap ban in the library. I wanted to take a picture of it, still holding up nicely despite circulating once a month on average, but...it's checked out!
Not only have the flaps help up perfectly, the shape makes the book stand out on the shelf - without causing a problem for shelvers, like a certain round book did. It is super easy for little fingers to pull it out by the top corner, making me wonder why all board books aren't shaped this way!
As with the first book, the illustrations are beautiful pieces of art, with the bright colors and large eyes that catch a baby's focus. Animal sounds and easy guessing games are always a sure bet with the littles. This would be a fun book to include in someone's stocking!
Gifting Ideas: Pair this with some brightly colored hand or finger puppets of different animals, like these (click here for Amazon link).
