What's Inside? See-through Pages and Magic Surprises! by Okido

This book gives children the power of X-ray vision to see whats inside things. When a child holds a page up to the light, she can see through to the page behind: for example, when a child holds up a page showing a car, she can see the engine under the bonnet (printed on the reverse). The book is divided into five sections: Whats inside your body?; Whats inside machines?; Whats inside the world of nature?; Whats inside buildings?; and Your turn!, in which children draw their own pictures, putting a present inside the box, snacks inside the fridge, a person behind the door, birds in the tree, etc.


Questions . . . cue kids to lift the page to the light, where the answer, drawn on the backing page, shines through.
