Although the illustrations arent 100% my cup of tea, this is a sweet read for young readers. The simple black and white with a blob of colour on each page is apparently perfect for babies, more tham coloured books. Don't ask me why, I've just heard it being said. I like how the animal is described on the left stage then shown on the right.
I found sliding parts of the animal up and down rather fun! They all slide smoothly, and will provide minutes of fun for children of all ages. I have to say that some readers may be a bit amused by the book series title, Wee Gallery. I know it's a Scottish word for something small, which denotes the series as being for young children, but a few readers may see it and think wee as in pee, which isn't part of the book at all! There, it had to be said ^o^
I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review on my blog Nayu's Reading Corner[...]
Wee Gallery Slide & Play Books. Illustrations by Surya Sajnani. Published by Quarto. These are sturdy, high quality board books appropriate for ages 18 months to 4 years old. The simple text paired with Sajnani's endearing, black and white illustrations are perfect for tiny readers. Each page offers three hints about the animal and then poses the question "Who am I?" Next to that you'll find a great interactive, sliding puzzle. Once the puzzle is solved you'll see the full illustration of the animal, along with its name. The puzzles are fun and slide with ease for little fingers. I'd consider these books perfect for any toddler. Fun to read in the lap of a loved one. But also entertaining to play with alone (think car rides, restaurants, etc.) Would definitely recommend these to parents of little ones.
We love interactive books so the sliders were very appealing to me for my young 3 children. The quality is impressive. I've had slider books that my children have easily torn apart. I am not concerned that they will be able to do that with this book.
Just like the Wee Gallery Safari book, this one about Pets is equally impressive. The illustrations are adorable and simple. The "who am I" question that follows three simple sentences about each animal was another interactive element the kids loved.
We hope more are coming because we really enjoy these. They would make a great baby shower gift or birthday gift for ages 0-5 in my opinion. My 5 year old loved trying to read the name of the animal and also enjoyed trying to draw the illustrations herself.
