Welcome to Main Street! Visit the bakery, fish market, hair salon, museum, and circus, lifting flaps to make extraordinary discoveries as you wander through this small town. Peer through the die-cut windows of the bakery to admire its mouthwatering croissants, then lift the gatefold to waltz inside where there are additional flaps—and marvelous delicacies—to uncover. Oh, but wait! There’s so much more to explore. With adorable, retro illustrations and smart novelty bookmaking, there’s always a whimsical surprise just around the corner.
My toddler son LOVES this book and would have me read it again and again, but in terms of a read-aloud experience it’s not terribly enjoyable (as the adult) to have to read ad nauseum. There’s no story here, but plenty of fun lift the flaps for little hands to explore!
