Things That Go (I Can Learn)
Children will delight in exploring the pages and lifting the flaps while learning all about the many different things that go!
Learning is fun with the I Can Learn! series where young readers can explore colors, shapes, counting, and many other first concepts in these hands-on books. Manipulating special features such as tactile elements, sound buttons, and flaps is an excellent way for children to reinforce learning and strengthen hand-eye coordination.
What I loved: This is a really interactive board book that children will enjoy checking out. Each vehicle is manned by animals that adds to the fun. Combined with the bright colors, the illustrations are attention-grabbing and great for young children. The diversity of vehicles is fun, and there's many included on each page spread. The flaps are really fantastic- very thick and sturdy, so they will hold up to a lot of use. Some are as large as the page with other small ones behind them. The images are printed on both sides, so children can keep checking out the vehicles and animals while turning them. All the vehicles are also labeled, which is not necessary for adults, but will definitely aid in early word recognition as readers can point out the word for "car," "van," and "boat" as they speak about them.
The length of the book and its simplicity, combined with the easy to turn pages/flaps, makes this great for older infants and young toddlers who can check out the pages and flaps on their own. The length of text is great for this target audience, and the added vehicle labels will add in early reading word recognition.
Final verdict: With bright and delightful illustrations, many cool vehicles, and an interactive design, THINGS THAT GO is a adventure-filled board book that will appeal to infants and toddlers.
