Making Friends! (Just Like Us Series)

Summary:

This is a lift-the-flap book. Animals snuggle and play, and readers lift the flap to see two toddlers doing the same thing.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

Bright colors, sturdy construction, and full-page lift the flaps make this a fun book to share or to let toddlers "read" themselves.

Content Awareness Factors:

This is a great series, but the books are best shared one at a time. I wouldn't recommend reading more than one at a sitting.


Little Kid Reaction

My son loved lifting the flaps. It is a nice big flap, so it was easy for even the littlest hands to manipulate. He also identified the animals as we read.

Parent Reaction

This is an easy to read book. The illustrations are fun and bright. I also like the variety of characters of differing skin colors and handicaps.

Type of Book:
This board book series uses flaps and simple language to engage toddlers in sharing a book.
Educational Themes:

The story has a good moral about how to tread your friends: with respect and love.
