Little fingers can easily learn how to move the sliders to reveal four favorite safari animals and their names in this interactive board book.

Wee Gallery – This stunning new range of books for pre-schoolers marries fresh design with engaging educational content. The result of a partnership between Wee Gallery and QEB Publishing, the beautiful illustrations, high contrast black and white bold lines, whimsical animals, and repeating patterns are designed to stimulate visual development in young infants. Family-run Wee Gallery have over 10 years experience in graphic design and education, and so these books are guaranteed to excite and engage little minds.

These interactive board books which allow their little readers to slide pictures around until they get a clear picture of the animal in description are great favourites in my house. My three year old niece thinks they are hilarious and often forgets she’s supposed to be constructing an animal but tries to get the weirdest picture possible. But those are three year olds for you. My 10 month nephew has no idea what’s going on but he does like the taste of the books as he nibbles on them with glee.

I think the books are gorgeous and make bedtime way more fun (though I’m going to admit that after the twentieth time the story loses its sparkle). Buy this one for your tots, folks, and listen to them chortle. They are kinda adorable (both the books and the tots).
