My copies of . . .
Who's Looking at You? by Stephane Frattini and . . .
The second photo shows the flap of the above left photo, opened. The snail image was one of my favorites. I had never seen a snail up close and personal and actually said, "Oh. That is so cool!" aloud, when I opened it. The flaps are pretty sturdy and you can see by looking above that there's a good 1/2" of glued margin. From our experience, flap books tend not to last too long. So, I'd try to keep little hands from tugging on the pages, but the text is brief and informative so both books are super for on-the-lap reading time. The recommended age range is 2-5.
Tushes and Tails! and Who's Looking at You? are both highly recommended. Beautiful, often surprising photographs, just the right amount of information in a nice, bold print that's easy to read and a nice sturdy feel to the flaps make both books winners. And, actually, they'd make excellent gifts if you're looking for books for preschoolers.
