Review: Furry Friends: Flip-a-Face
Furry Friends: Flip-a-Face by SAMi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
An interactive book about identity and illustration, Furry Friends is a board book worth sharing with your child. Bright colors and blocky shapes make for a visually pleasing layout. The book's simple text elicits good conversation between child and parent, or could be bypassed for more basic enjoyment of the subject matter. While young children can interact with the cutouts and colors, older children will have fun identifying the differences between facial features on animals. This would be especially recommended for animal lovers, or children who would enjoy the practice of identifying species or parts of the face. The variety of settings pictured around the animals and the differences between domesticated and wild animals are also rich topics for parent-child conversations. This book would be best for children under 3.
