This week the boys have been going crazy for a new book that we received, Follow Me Around the House! They have been so lucky to be sent this for review and we have spent hours looking at it. That is no exaggeration by the way!!!
Premise – Follow Me Around The House
The book sees Siamese cat Luna, show three curious puppies around their new home.
Luna has a wild imagination as she warns the puppies what to expect! She want to make sure they know about crocodile in the bathtub and horrible beasts in the attic. But what will the puppies really find?
Follow Me Around the House has an incredible 50 lift the flaps to open and explore.
“Follow me, Follow me. This is the living room.
Be careful near that old cabinet.
Trust me, trust me… I think it’s full of ferocious spiders.”
D: “First, we have the page with all the doggies, that is so cool. Then, they have found a spiderweb in a cupboard with is funny. They find lots and lots and LOTS of stuff. My favourite bit is the attic, because that is when they are having fun.”
L:”I like it! I like the bathroom page, because I love the ducks that I found. I like ducks. ducks are my favourite. The cat is silly!”
The thing that stands out for me is the illustrations in this book. They look incredible and have so much detail in them. Every time you look at this book you see something different! I love Luna’s incredible imagination, it is just like the boys and I am sure that is why this book captured their imagination.
The flaps encourages children to be fully engaged with the book. The kids loved exploring and finding out what was really behind the doors and curtains.
