The Lovereading4Kids comment

A playful book of opposites, this stunning and robust novelty board book contains 9 press-out pieces to be slotted into die-cut spaces and a mylar mirror to learn new words and practice motor skills and shape recognition.


Give & Take by Lucie Felix

Press out the shape and turn the page to complete a new picture. Best of all, ask a grown-up to play along with you, from 'take' and 'give' and 'break' and 'build' to 'now you see me', 'now you don't!' till you rediscover the red circle of the beginning, now become an apple. Once you're there, you can go backwards through the book and do it all again!


'Highly engaging large-format board book exploring shapes and opposites in a simple graphic style reminiscent of Herve Tullet.' The Bookseller
