Kid Konnection: New Chronicle Board Books

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.

Summary: Get animals moving and grooving with each lift—or swing— of a flap! Wiggle inventive flaps to make a butterfly flitter away. Tug an unexpected pop-up to make a wide-eyed hippo stick out its tongue! Bold, graphic, and hilarious, this novelty book is perfect for interactive reading and playtime fun! -- Chronicle

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:

Summary: Spot sweet surprises with each lift—or swing—of a flap! Cheep! Cheep! Who is cuddled under Mama's wing? Buzz! Buzzzz! Who has landed on that flashy flower? Discover hidden surprises and delight in interactive peekaboo play with this entertaining lift-the-flap book. 

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.

My kids loved flip flap books too, and so did/do my grandkids.

Our kids always loved Lift the Flap books, so much so in fact that they were usually ruined after so much lifting. These sound really fun for toddlers!
