With a variety of related images on every page, my grandson also enjoys pointing to and naming each one. He looks forward to reaching the last page that is a typical attic - full of scattered items to find and name.
There is a lovely hidden-in-plain-sight visual tale here as you move through Fox's search for his socks. When your child is familiar with the whole story, try and tell it through the little Mouse's point of view. Look at all the scenery especially the way the artist has put things into the background, upside down pictures etc. It's not just what's under the flaps that are interesting.
I bought this for my grandson and he loved opening up the flaps whilst the story was being read. It was a great favourite. I am now buying it for a neighbours little boy, as I am sure he will enjoy it too.
In this story, the delivery of several letters makes for a lovely treat in the end. The dwelllings are interesting for what they have in and nearby, Axel Scheffler does a great job complimenting the riming prose of Julia Donaldson.
I have high hopes for the flaps last a bit longer on this edition as the cardboard is stronger.
A nicely illustrated book- any children aged 1-3 who like lift the flap books will enjoy.
Let's see how the flaps last :)
