Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

The Book

This interactive delightful board book is perfect for toddlership ( I think I just made up that word )  and beyond.  It offers a fun engaging way to learn new vocabulary.  The mission of the book is to focus on language development.  A fun aspect is that pictographs are inserted throughout so little ones can help "read" along too.  

The book consists of three simple stories that follow the adventures of Little Fox.  The stories include Little Fox trying to find a comfy place to sleep, helping Rabbit think of a birthday present for his friend hog, and saving Squirrel from the danger of a deep puddle. At the end of each story the author has added a matching or labeling activity to keep the readers involved.  

The illustrations are very well done.  They are colourful, busy and the animals depicted are adorable.  The amazing detail will be a hit with that targeted age group.  This book will definitely be a great book for beginning readers.  I highly recommend it.
