interactive page-turning picture book

SAVE YOUR FRIENDS! is a simple, interactive story told in speech bubbles. The shark is about to eat your friends, and you can save them by turning the page. The text tends to be fairly repetitive, along the lines of asking for help/to be saved and then thanking the reader on the next page as another sea creature asks for help. The images are simple but with fun animals.

What I loved: The interactive nature of the book is really strong, and young children will enjoy responding by turning the page. There are a variety of sea creatures pictured, which is also fun if parents can supply the information about the fish and other animals pictured. The end of the book features some shark facts, which adds an educational component to the book.

What left me wanting more: I would have liked some other information about the sea creatures featured throughout. For instance, an overhead text that names the animals and gives a fact, just to add an educational component, would have been cool to see. However, as is, it is still a fluffy and interactive book.

Final verdict: For children who love books like ARE YOU MY MOTHER? and THE MONSTER AT THE END OF THE BOOK, this is a fun and interactive book featuring a shark and the sea creatures it wants to eat.
