This novelty board book can be enjoyed by both younger babies and older toddlers. The clever construction allows your child to interact with every page to be whatever they want, from a penguin to a tiger to a rabbit, depending on how they feel. It allows your child to explore emotions and feelings, and have fun at the same time. Simple text and colourful pages make this a book your child keeps picking up. The perfect design means little fingers can enjoy this book with or without adult help.
Practical Pre-School
These are ‘must buy’ books for the whole early years. The Reception children at St Oswald’s Catholic Primary in Wigan couldn’t put these down. They laughed, compared, recommended and discussed them. Each book has its own sturdy card figure (boy on one side, girl on other) fixed by ribbon to the spine. Move it to the plastic ‘costume’ pocket on each page and turn the child into a penguin, nurse or an astronaut! Children were fascinated by the idea of dressing up as a hotdog and intrigued by the fun, factual text which they could read: ‘I am chewy. Squeeze on the sauce. Munch! I am a hotdog! The books prompted speculation about what they would do if one child was a bowl of spaghetti and the other was a crocodile, or if someone was the ice-cream, which would the croc eat? These books are very good value for the conversation they inspired and at a basic level they clearly define categories.
Nursery Education
Young children can continually change their opinions on what they like. A new series of books lets them explore a whole variety of topics and change their mind at the drop of a hat!
The All Change! series is a set of four brightly coloured titles, Animals, Food, Party and Jobs, allowing the children to explore each subject and tackle issues of gender stereotypes.
Publishers Weekly
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.
Children's Literature
Animals have different characteristics, and human emotions can often be associated with them. In this board book a red ribbon attaches to a cardboard figure that could be a boy or a girl. The cutout, a sort of paper doll, slips into a vinyl pocket in each spread. The text uses the animal to accompany the emotion. "When I feel brave, I want to be a Tiger. Roar! Roar!" Kids will have fun making the animal sounds as they slip the cardboard figure into its slot, while they also pretend to be brave, noisy, loving and more. Additionally, they will be learning the names of the animals and a little fact about each. 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.
