Three Days in 3D From Barron’s
Debbie Glade reviews three special board books for the youngest readers.
There’s something exciting about opening a sturdy, colorful die cut board book, and it’s even more exciting when there are three in a series. Every page of each book is a different shape, so when the books are closed, they have a wonderful 3D effect.
The three 8-page books, A Day at the Circus, A Day at the Farm and A Day at the Zoo ($6.99, Barron’s Educational Series, ages 1 and up) show wee ones what they would see if they visited these places. Children in the stories are shown lending a helping hand. With simple rhyming prose and rich and colorful illustrations, these books make for a perfect gift and a cozy bedtime read.
