A quartet of interactive board books in the All Change! series by Angela Lambert go from simple concepts such as Food and Animals, to more complex ideas such as Party and Jobs. All books come with a corrugated doll attached by a red string that eases in and out of a transparent pocket ("I am sweet and crumbly./ Do you like icing?/ Mmmmn!/ I'm a Cake!"). This interactive element works more successfully in the latter two titles. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Do you like sweets, snacks, fruit, and other foods? Each has a taste or quality that sets it apart from the others. In this board book a red ribbon attaches to a cardboard figure that can be a boy or a girl, depending on which side of the figure the reader selects. The cutout, a sort of paper doll, slips into a vinyl pocket in each spread. The text describes a food--"I am cold and creamy. Quick, or I'll melt! Brrr! I am an Ice Cream." Kids can have fun pretending they are eating a hotdog, spaghetti, pineapple, and more, and at the same time learn a little about the food item, including its name. The ribbon seems to be securely attached, and the front cover pocket is a good place to keep the cutout safe. This is part of the "All Change!" series. 2005, Child's Play, Ages 3 to 6.
