Bedtime Story: Tails

Synopsis: "Tails are irresistible to toddlers, and in Matthew Van Fleet’s sturdy touch-and-feel board book, preschool-age pokers and prodders can finally tug to their heart’s content. Engaging, cartoonish animals from tigers to pangolins romp across the pages as the rhyming text bounces along: “Tails fluffy, / Tails stringy, / Scaled tails strong and—clingy!” Pull tabs, lift-able flaps, tufts of fur, and even a scratch-and-sniff skunk tail provide plenty of tactile surprises. Along the way, youngsters will learn about counting, opposites, and how animals use their tails. A tried and true tail-wagger!"

My Review: Munchkin received this book when he was brand new and didn't have the patience for it until about 6 months old but now he loves it and will continue to as it has activities for older kids too. All the different textures are fun for him now and once he has the coordination down pulling tabs and flipping flaps will be a blast. Then there are the animal names to learn and counting the animals on each page too. This is a great book for little ones to keep for a long time and keep them busy. What I want to know is has anyone been brave enough for the scratch n sniff skunk tail?!
My Rating: Whenever Munchkin is on the floor in his room he immediately crawls over to the bookshelves and pulls this book out.  I really do think this will be a favorite book for a long time and it is great for all kids. I give it a rating of Four Paws!
Good Night! Sweet Dreams!
