Pets is two in one, a book and a game, and for little ones who can't or won't sit still long enough for a full story, it's a great way to introduce books while keeping it fun.
This is a slide and play book and it's just as the name suggests on the tin. There are 4 pages with words on. Just 4. But there's a further 4 pages to the book, and this is where the fun starts. Each of these pages has a sort of jigsaw on, with chopped up pictures that you slide around to form the correct image.
If you remember those plastic square sliding puzzles where you had to move pieces up down, left and right, and shuffle them all over to reconstruct the picture you're on the right lines. But because this is aimed at much younger children the options are more limited and you only slide up and down so it's not hard to get the picture as it should be. But that doesn't mean it's not fun.
The theme is pets, so we have a dog, a goldfish, a cat and a bunny rabbit. They're all cute and friendly, and the pages that have words on give you clues based on their defining features – I have long ears. I eat carrots. My tail is fluffy, that kind of thing.
This book is super sturdy, just as it needs to be, and you get the impression it will stand up to some quite rough handling as sticky little hands slide the pieces up and down to form the shape of the animal.
I'd like to thank the publishers for sending us this book.
Once you've learnt to recognise animals from their look, why not move on to their sound, with Animal Noises by Nicola Killen. Slightly older children will enjoy Hush...Little Bear is Sleeping by Surya Sajnani.
