|NOT your average book! |
Wait until you see how cool these are...I think you'll love them!
The outside 'holder' of the book is really a big 3D fold-out that turns into an ark. There are cardboard punch outs galore of the characters and animals from the story. This makes play time extra special because it allows the kids to play out and elaborate on what they are reading.
It's great for the imagination, and the perfect way to get the children interested in and engaged in learning and/or reading. Fortunately most children love to read to begin with, so if you're gifting this to someone it's very likely going to be received very well.
All Aboard the Pirate Ship operates under the same concept. The case serves as a 'pirate ship' that the kids put together. It also has a good number of cardboard pop-outs that children can use or build as the story progresses. This book is about a boy who loves the idea of being a pirate, and he sneaks upon a ship to see if he has what it takes to really be one because not only is it a book...but it's a book they can play with too.
The instructions to put these books together are very easy. They are suggested for ages 5 and up, but I'll let you know my son loved them and he's almost 10-years-old and my granddaughter who just turned 4 a month ago is also a huge fan.
The illustrations in the book are as cute as they can be, drawn in a style that is very appealing for the littles,
The photo above shows some of the pieces, and you can see how they connect with the mini cardboard stands. It's sturdy cardboard that doesn't bend easily, even after a lot of handling, and that's a good thing.
Of course the case for this one is a castle. What else would it be? :) It's adorable, isn't it? This is sure to be a hit with any child you know. It's surely a big hit here.
