One of Our Books of the Year 2017 | February 2017 Book of the Month Open the book and turn its divided pages carefully, top and bottom half together, and you’ll discover bright pages of favourite dogs, each with its own jolly descriptive poem. But, for more fun, flip top and bottom halves of the page separately to create your own unique gallery of brand new dog breeds. How about a Boodle – half Beagle, half Poodle; or a Dachshiel – half Dachshund, half Spaniel? There are more than 100 possible combinations, so hours of entertainment are guaranteed. Sturdy pages and spiral binding make this suitable for even the littlest hands and everyone will have fun sounding out the mixed-up names of their new creations. ~ Andrea Reece See more Flip Flap books here.
Little children love sticker books and this one is genuinely lovely and full of interesting facts and information about British animals too. There are eleven different scenes to be decorated with stickers, and each one is a natural setting beautifully depicted. There’s a garden with molehills, badgers and a hedgehog waiting for the addition of moles, slugs and foxes; an underground scene that shows how badgers and rabbits live; a woodland scenes with baby animals; and beach scenes too. The stickers are just as lovely and include otters, bats, seals, deer and even beavers. This will be worth keeping and reading even after the last sticker has been stuck. ~ Andrea Reece The Editor at Nosy Crow says: “There’s nothing quite like a sticker book for keeping little ones busy – so with beautiful animal stickers and lots of detail to add to every scene, this book will provide hours of entertainment.”
