Sharing stories, talking and singing every day helps child’s development in lot many ways.
You’re getting your child familiar with sounds, words, language, print and, eventually, the value and joy of books. This all builds your child’s early literacy skills and helps him go on to read successfully later in childhood. Reading stories also stimulates your child’s imagination and helps her learn about the world around her.
Reading together creates a lovely time for bonding with your child.
If you are willing to buy your kids some interactive books, there are so many wonderful and interesting styles to get your kids hooked on to books from an early age.
Get your kids into books early with the following five interactive books that are perfect for toddlers, especially the pre-schoolers:
- “Press Here” by Hervé Tullet: Each page asks the child to perform a task, such as pressing a colored dot or blowing on the page. When the page is turned, the landscape has magically changed. This is the best gifting option for kids between one to three.
2. “Alphabet” by Matthew Van Fleet: This fun alphabet book invites kids to interact with it in every possible way. Kids can lift flaps, pull tabs, feel textures, even scratch and sniff. In Matthew Van Fleet’s incredible multiconcept book, over 100 creatures and plants from A to Z hilariously demonstrate action words, synonyms, opposites, and more. Young explorers are challenged to spot four plants or animals that begin with each letter of the alphabet. Twenty-three textures plus foils, flaps, pull tabs, and even a scratch-and-sniff scent add to the interactive surprises on every page. Also includes a removable full-color alphabet poster for learning fun! This book will definitely help in their alphabet skills.
3. “Out of sight” by Francesco Pittau and Bernadette Gervais: Even adults have to look twice when playing a good game of hidden pictures. You have to concentrate to finish all the activities in this book. In this big, beautiful, astonishing book, more than 50 animals are hiding. In elegant drawings and graphic, eye-catching layouts, Out of Sight will enthrall children with the amazing variety of the animal kingdom.
4. “Mix it Up!” by Hervé Tullet : Using the same interactive format as Press Here, Mix it Up! focusses on color mixing. Kids will love it.
5. “Tap the Magic Tree” by Christie Matheson: is similar in concept to Press Here and its companion books. Innovative and timeless, Tap the Magic Tree asks you to help one lonely tree change with the seasons. This is quite interactive and magical.
To conclude, “interactive” doesn’t just mean touching, it means “participation required.” We are sure that these chosen books will inspire a child’s imagination in innovative, surprising ways.
