LoveReading View on Make it Grow

This unusual interactive picture book is full of interesting lessons on the natural world for very young children. Each spread features a different natural habitat, from the back garden to the mountain top via meadows and deserts. Four lines of rhyming text set each scene and issue a challenge, then it’s up to the reader to lift the large die-cut flaps and see what’s growing underneath. The illustrations are mostly in muted mono-colours, but the stylised plants, berries and insects underneath the flaps are represented in vibrant colour. This will be very satisfying for young children, and is a visual feast for grown-ups too. ~ Andrea Reece


Make it Grow Synopsis

Lift the flaps to make things grow and learn about colors in this unique, interactive title for children aged 3+. Fun rhyming text introduces you to the habitat you're in and asks you to lift the die-cut flaps to make plants and creatures grow. Each plant is a different color, and at the back is a big lift-the-flap rainbow to reinforce the colors you've learned. Includes flowers (flowerbed), toadstools (forest), seaweed (ocean), berries (mountain), apples (tree), cacti (desert), butterflies (meadow).
