The Lovereading4Kids comment

April 2015 Book of the Month This chunky, colourful little board book is just the thing to develop early faculties including hand-eye co-ordination and fine motor skills. Cheerful animals are depicted in bright colours on each page, and sturdy sliders can be moved from side to side – often with a satisfying thunk – to reveal surprises: meerkats popping up from their burrows, monkeys swinging through the trees, a bush-baby’s eyes blinking open. There’s lots to look at, lots to name, and this is just the thing to share at home, or to pop into the buggy if you are going on a journey, or even planning lunch out (you can wipe clean the pages too). ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Baby's Very First Slide and See Animals by Fiona Watt

An engaging, interactive board book, specially designed for very young children, full of vivid colours, stylish illustrations and friendly animals. Part of a brand new series brilliant for developing essential motor skills and hand-eye coordination.

Simple slider mechanisms allow a picture to be transformed, as a bush baby peers out from his tree trunk home, some meerkats pop up from their underground burrows and a monkey swings through the trees.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
