Even though my kids are well beyond board books, I still love them. When I received two new ones from the delightful Clavis, I knew I wanted to share them with you.
Baby, Where Are You? features a delightful combination of photographs and cute cartoon drawings (just like on the cover).
The left page features a photograph of a mommy animal, asking “Baby ___ (polar bear, giraffe, monkey, etc), where are you?” Then the right page is divided into 4 squares and shows 4 different cartoon baby animals. This allows the toddler to try to find the right match for the mommy animal. Under the flap, it features a photograph of the cute baby, and it either says “Here I am Mommy, I am a baby ____ (whatever the Mommy was looking for),” or “I am not a baby ____, I am a (penguin, hedgehog, squirrel, deer etc).”
Mommy, Where Are You? features the exact same formula in reverse. The baby is featured on the left side looking for his or her mommy.
I love the bright colors, the mix of cute cartoons and photos, and of course the cute baby animals. I think that young children would enjoy this board book, and could even “read” and match it by themselves. The flaps are fairly sturdy, like a reinforced cardboard (not as thick at the board book pages), so I would think it would be pretty durable.
My son loves interactive book that he can open and close flaps. He gets bored just sitting there and listening. He has to be the one doing something.
Yes, that’s true! Whatever keeps them interested in books is a good thing!
