Sean Burgess is back again as guest reviewer today with his take on a fun new toddler book from Chronicle Books/Blue Apple.
With my 18 month old daughter Teagan interested and even more knowledgeable than ever about the parts of the body, the book Flip-a-Face Furry Friends: Same and Different came to us at just the right time. Every time we hold Teagan she always points out the features of our face; nose, eyes, ears, teeth. This book brings new attention to details of the face. That’s why I love this Flip-a-Face book. The reader is asked: “How is the cat’s face different from the dog’s face? What is missing from this face?” Plus, this book is a wonderful way to get kids talking about faces in a fun, interactive way, even making a game of it.
The author SAMi’s vibrant colored animal artwork, like Japanese anime, also features each animal set within its environment on a pull out page. Other animals featured are lion, lamb, cow, horse, tiger and fox.
