Kid Konnection: Just Imagine & Play Activity 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 very fun activity books!

Summary: Welcome to the bustling construction site!

Have you ever wanted to be in charge of your own construction site? With this awesome interactive activity book, you can! Unfold this book, and there's your stand-up play scene. Customize your construction site with the reusable stickers and punch-out, stand-up characters, and you're ready for action! What you build on your construction site is up to you! Use dump trucks, excavators and bulldozers to move dirt and build houses and skyscrapers. Includes a 48-page activity book with cool facts about construction tools and vehicles, puzzles, and games, plus the punch-out characters, reusable stickers, and a fold-out construction site scene. -- Quarto

Summary: Welcome to the rustic, sunny farm!

Have you ever wondered what life is like on the farm? Find out with this fun and sunny interactive activity book! Unfold this book, and there's your stand-up play scene. Customize your farm with the reusable stickers and punch-out, stand-up characters, and you're ready for action. What kinds of animals you have on your farm and what you grow is up to you! Gather eggs, feed the pigs, milk the cows, plant the crops; it's never a dull day on the farm! Includes a 48-page activity book with cool facts about farm vehicles and animals, puzzles, and games, plus punch-out characters, reusable stickers, and a fold-out barnyard scene. -- Quarto

I was absolutely delighted when I received review copies of ON THE SITE ACTIVITY BOOK and ON THE FARM ACTIVITY BOOK! These two books brought me back to my childhood because they are exactly the types of books that I loved as a kid. Both activity books are geared for children ages 3 to 6, and they are interactive -- meaning they are designed for young readers to "play" with them.

With ON THE SITE and ON THE FARM, kids can unfold the books and have an automatic stand-up play scene. Then, they can punch out stand up machines or characters to use with the play scene. There are also reusable stickers which make the possibilities endless for make-believe.

In addition to these play scenes, these books also have fun facts about construction tools/vehicles and farm animals/machines. I especially liked that there were little puzzles and games including dot-to-dot, mazes, sudoku, and more!

I highly recommend both ON THE SITE and ON THE FARM, and at $9.95 each they are perfect for gifts. In fact, I can't wait to give them to the little boys I babysit each week. I just know they are going to love them!

Thanks to Quarto for providing review copies of these books.

Those books sound really fun! I wish my son were younger.

I loved interactive books like this when I was a kid too. I think books like this are important in view of the facility kids have with tablets today. They need to get back to tactile learning activities.

I loved these kinds of books as a child too! Fun themes as well. Sorry I didn't get into the link up this week. I can barely keep up around here and had to let last week go! I'll have one this week though!
