In this oversize board book, young readers will learn about comparative adjectives via a very humorous parrot—from noisy and noisier, to messy and messier, to happy and happier when it finally finds a friend. As with the previous books in the series, Comparrotives features surprising touch-and-feel novelty elements throughout—making the comparatives concept easy and fun to learn.
What I loved: This is such a delightful way to teach a complex concept. The parrot throughout manages to demonstrate each of the comparatives in a fun way. Some of the favorites are close and closer, where the parrot's face takes up the closer page, as he gets "closer" to the reader, and soft and softer, where the parrot is snuggling a stuffed animal for soft, and laying on a touchably soft blanket for softer. The added texture in some of the scenes really adds to the engagement and increases learning for young minds. The font is large and easily readable, made to share with older infants and toddlers.
Final verdict: A charming and educational board book, COMPARROTIVES is a delightful learning experience for infants and toddlers. With a cute parrot and a simple concept, this book is one that children and parents can enjoy.
