Today's read... Where's the Cat? by Nosy Crow

I'm super late announcing today's read because we've had a busy and fun day with family and friends, visiting a fair to raise funds and awareness for foster children care. While there were games and projects galore (we were able to pretend we were kids, again), it was touching to see the community come together like that. 

Anyway, today's read heads toward the youngest bookworms out there...and happens to be one of my favorite types of kidlit—a book with flaps! Why don't older books hold things to discover, too? I know it's silly fun, but there's just something about looking under a door to find a surprise, which has me smiling every time.

MARCH 7th!!!

A pet-themed title in this best-selling series

Five beautifully illustrated spreads show a series of pets, including a goldfish, a dog, a guinea pig, and a cat hiding behind bright felt flaps. With a mirror on the final page, this is the perfect book to share with very little ones.



Searching and finding becomes an adventure for small, animal fans.

This is a board book for the youngest out there and centers around very familiar animals. The question of where a certain animal might be is asked, and then, the listener opens a felt flap (shaped like an object) to discover the animal underneath. 

The illustrations are bright, direct, and familiar. Even the flaps are formed in things listeners/readers will easily recognize (tree, chair, etc). The questions are repetitive, so that readers/listeners can soon join in and read right along as they anticipate the animal hidden underneath the flap. It's a simple and catchy fun, which will have readers visiting the animals again and again.
