This week's theme for Feed Me Books Friday is "Lift the Flap Books." We have some very clear favorites in this category. The first two were easy to pick, and I like to give them to new moms. The others that came to mind for our third favorite are all more of a fold out page style, rather than lifting flaps -- Karen Katz books, a really fantastic book we just got out of the library called Alphabeasties (full review coming soon), Playtime Peekaboo, or Curious George Bigger and Smaller. So, I went to the source and asked my little reader which of those he likes the most, and he opted for the last one. Just don't ask him again in 5 minutes, because you're sure to get a different answer.
Dear Zoo, by Rod Campbell
You can read our full review of this here. It is a sweet story, and a sturdy, fun book. Now that the Infant Bibliophile is a little more communicative, I decided to ask him why he liked it. This is what he had to say:
"Because it has lion and doggie and animals."
Open the Barn Door (A Chunky Book(R)).
This was one of our little guy's first favorites. Its small size is perfect for tiny hands to grasp. Our full review is here.
"Because it has animals." Does anyone sense a pattern here?
Curious George Bigger and Smaller Lift-the-Flap Board Book
Fold out pages show comparisons between bigger/smaller, higher/lower, clean/messy, etc. Our full review is here.
Why does he like it? Let's ask him. "Because it has a kitty."
We did a related craft awhile back. You can read about it here.
