This charming introduction to colors, shapes, and animals has been delighting children all over the world for ten years! There is a surprise on every peek-a-boo page, where textured shapes magically turn into colorful creatures perfect for toddler’s touching.
This really is so cute! The touch and feel elements are well-done and provide a nice variety of textures and I loved the seamless combination of animals, shapes, colors and textures! The lift-the-flaps are definitely a little flimsy however (just barely thicker than standard paper!) so I’d recommend this be a book that is read under close supervision, which is a little unfortunate.
