Suggested by the wonderful Harris & Harris books in Clare http://www.harrisharris.co.uk/, this is a lovely interactive 3D book, crammed with items to touch, remove and play with. Eight sturdy, individually die cut leaves lift, slide, unfold and pull out, keeping young children absorbed for quite some time. The delightful unfolds as Granny’s treasured belongings are discovered. A Passport leads to wild imaginings of explorer adventures, sunglasses can be tried on and rings slipped onto little fingers.A banana containing a joke is juxtaposed with the latest smartphone- children do love to mess with a forbidden smartphone.
Although the books target age range is aged 2+ I have read reviews praising this books suitability for younger children as long as they are supervised with it.
