Every Saturday, I host a feature called Kid Konnection -- a regular weekend feature about anything related to children's books. This week I'm going to share with you two precious board books for little ones.
ALL SHOOK UP! by Alain Crozon is a very cute board book. It even has flaps... and you know how little hands love flaps! Children can make all types of animals "move" by lifting or swinging the flaps. There is a bird, a butterfly, a bunny, an elephant, and even a hippo.
The picture book is a lot of fun and has adorable illustrations in vibrant colors. I was impressed with how sturdy the pages of the book and the flaps are. As a mom who had to replace lift-the-flap books because of overuse (or over-love!), that's an important feature for me. Check out the image below to get a better idea of just how unique ALL SHOOK UP! is:
WHO'S THERE? by Alain Crozon is another cute picture book. Like ALL SHOOK UP!, the book has whimsical illustrations that are also interactive; however in this book, there are hidden surprises underneath the flaps. For example, there is something underneath the mama bird's wing and a surprise inside the fish's belly.
When my kids were small, they loved the lift-the-flap books by Karen Katz. WHO'S THERE? reminds me a little of her books because there are secrets and surprises underneath the flaps. With the silly pictures and text, I think this book will have the same broad appeal!
Both ALL SHOOK UP! and WHO'S THERE are fun books with the flaps on every page that are guaranteed to entertain toddlers!
Thanks to the publisher for providing review copies of these books.
