Can You Say It, Too? Tweet! Tweet! (Can You Say It, Too?)
Children will love spotting the bird, lifting the flap to reveal the complete creature, and then making its noise in this latest book in the Can You Say It, Too? series. Sturdy flaps and simple text combine with friendly artwork to make a fantastic first book that is great for sharing with children who are just starting to talk.
What I loved: The flaps add some wonderful fun to this cute book which features simple text and sounds which will enchant young readers. The images are colorful and lovely, making it a pleasure for young readers to explore. The pages are also thick and so easy for little fingers to turn. Most of the birds are fairly common around the country, and so this has connections to the sounds that young children would hear around their own backyard. I also love that the baby birds are shown with the male peacock- this may be a small thing, but it is always great to see the father taking care of children, even if illustrated in birds.
What left me wanting more: As a minor point, the flaps themselves are a little thin and so will be torn by children who are often the culprits behind “rip-the-flap” books. However, they do stand up to more minor pulling and yanking.
Final verdict: CAN YOU SAY IT, TOO? TWEET! TWEET! is a delightful exploration of birds and the sounds they make with engaging and vivid images along with fun flaps to lift. I would recommend for all older infants and toddlers, who will enjoy flipping through and imitating the bird sounds.
