Children’s small hands will have no trouble generating exciting sounds in this entertaining play book, bringing a construction site to life. Entirely without electronics! Simply move the two sliders in the book and the construction vehicles will start to clatter, rattle and buzz. Particularly exciting: the sounds vary depending on whether the sliders are moved slowly or quickly. It’s also fascinating to watch the images change! Brief texts invite adults and children to look at the book together, read it aloud and play.

About the Series

Interactive play books with sounds – entirely without batteries! No batteries are required as the sounds are created solely through paper technology and friction. The sounds vary depending on how vigorously, quickly or gently the sliders are moved. The pleasant sounds are easy on parents’ sensitive ears. Eye-catching illustrations and brief texts prompt children to get involved and play.

The Author

Sandra Grimm began her career as an editor and is now a freelance author. Her background as a certified teacher offers a sound basis for her books for children and teenagers. She has three young children with whom she can test all her fun ideas.

The Illustrator

Christine Faust studied the design of games and educational materials, and logically should be creating toys. But because she would much rather draw (and can sit still while doing it), she illustrates children’s games and books. In addition, she works in film and television animation.
