The various little doors of this lift-the-flap book are large and extra sturdy. This cardboard picture book is made from safe materials, meaning the little ones are free to explore it with all of their senses. There are lots of exciting things to see in this lift-the-flap book: There’s a hose inside the fire truck, a doll is hiding in the little house and there’s yummy food in the lunch box.

Opening the sturdy flaps playfully supports children’s fine motor skills and trains their perception. In addition, the “hide-and-seek” aspect offers inspiration for conversations between parents and children. What can you discover together in the book? Does your child recognise the depicted item and does it exist in your home as well? These conversations strengthen the bond between parents and children, inspires the little ones to name the items and supports their language development. Open It Up and Take a Look was developed by pedagogues and supports children in an age-appropriate and fun way!
