A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this book.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that interactive play and cheerful illustrations enliven the age-appropriate text. Easy-to-follow instructions help toddlers seek out the correct puzzle pieces.
Is It Any Good?
The design and theme of this book is right on target for toddlers. The brief sentences feature toddler-tantalizing items: big billowy bubbles, fun floating toys, and the like. The direct format of a statement followed by a related question enables even young children to comprehend what is being requested of them.
Sparkling illustrations are small on detail but large on charm. Simple cartoon drawings on white backgrounds focus a tot's attention on the context of the picture. The large puzzle pieces are easy to manipulate and offer plenty of opportunity for success. Made of thick, coated cardboard, the sturdy pieces and pages should hold up to repeated handlings.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
