Everything An Interactive Book Should Be
This heavy-duty board book is built to withstand hours of fun.
It begins with
"One shiny, blue fish / swimming in the swamp. / Along came the alligator . . . / chomp, chomp, chomp!"At that time the child can pull the tab on the side of the book to make the alligator's mouth open and snap shut. The blue fish has shiny portions to feel and there is a cat tail with a soft fabric to feel.
Then there are two otters, then three cranes, etc.
If you're like me, even though each page is brightly colored, has cutouts to run a finger around and textured material to feel representing soft fur, a cat tail, or feathers, the chomp aspect of the story and a hungry alligator might worry you.
The counting continues until we get to ten hummingbirds. All the time the alligator is growing larger with each chomp, but after ten
One enormous alligator, / so full his tummy hurts. / Along came one last tiny fish, / chomp, chomp . . . BURP! / Excuse me!"All the animals (unharmed) come flying out and land all over the last large foldout page. The reader is then invited to read the book again but to count the insects on each page, which are scattered around the illustrations.
