Little ones will love encountering the amazing animals inside this board book, and with lots of flaps to lift, there's lots of fun to have. Animals are divided into categories such as “Big” (giraffe, blue whale), “Fast” (peregrine falcon, red fox), “In the Dark” (owl, red panda), and, of course, “In the House” (dog, cat, hamster). The playful text on the flaps gives readers simple clues that encourage discovery: Lift the flap that reads “I am super fast” and find a cheetah, while peeking under “My home is a fishbowl” reveals the cutest goldfish. The names of all the animals featured are included for easy reading and learning, and the tough board pages with rounded corners guarantee many hours of safe fun.
