Farms Lift And Look (Usborne Lift And Look)

Summary:

A young girl is on the farm in several different locations. Her journey sets up scenarios for a "search and find" using creative lift-the-flap cutouts.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

Kids love lift-the-flap books. Even though the main character is a girl, this was perfectly appropriate for a boy. The illustrations are great for growing with the child and for repeated readings.

Content Awareness Factors:

None. I wish it had just one more spread.


Little Kid Reaction

My son enjoyed lifting the flaps and identifying the objects and animals on the pages. This was a book he wanted to read again, and he picked it out in subsequent readings. He liked talking about "Anna."

Parent Reaction

I appreciated the detail and thought put into the lift-the-flaps. For instance, inside the apple you saw the apple seeds and a worm. In the barn in the background, the chickens were smaller and often you could "see through" the flaps, not that they were transparent, but many were of trees and bushes so you would know what was behind them (e.g., hot air balloon behind a tree).

Type of Book:
This board book offers toddlers and preschoolers a chance to egage in reading.
Educational Themes:

There is plenty to do with this book. It has excellent educational value, offering counting, animal identification, and science (plants, animals, etc.)

Reading Level:
0.0
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
5 to 8
Recommended Age To Read Together:
2 to 5
Age of child:
Read with 3-year-old boy.
Purchase Recommendation:
Borrow, at least. This is a book that can grow with your child. You might talk about tractors and chickens with a 2-year-old, and then six months later talk about mommy chickens and baby chicks, or how tractors dig up dirt to plant corn.
