Overview

Let your fingers do the walking--and dancing, and playing, and skating, and wagging. Children really get caught up in the action with this cool new series of board books. It's wonderfully simple: kids stick their fingers through the holes and they become part of the picture. Does the bug need antennae? Do mighty monkeys need some arms? Then that's what the fingers will be. Four great titles--some with two holes and others with one--offer lots of opportunity for fun:

· Amazing Animals: Add some tentacles to the octopus, give the walrus a pair of tusks; and show how the elephants got their trunks.
· Jazzy Jobs: Just see what a finger can do. It can turn into a firefighter's hose, a chef's spoon, a carpenter's hammer, and a painter's brush.
· Super Sports: Game time! Kick the soccer ball, swing that bat, and hit with that hockey stick.
· Wacky Weekend: Have some crazy days full of play. Swing the legs over monkey bars, stick out your tongue, and run and run.

Every picture will light up kids' imaginations.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The Funny Fingers board book series by Mark Shulman, illus. by Jenny Harris, features die-cut holes through the middle of each book, so that children's fingers can become part of the scenes. In Amazing Animals, a pair of die-cut holes through the book allows youngsters to create the trunks of two "entertaining elephants," the tentacles of the "outrageous octopus" and more. Fingers become necessary equipment in the die-cut hole for Jazzy Jobs (a carpenter's hammer, a helicopter propeller, etc.); while in Super Sports a finger becomes the kicker's leg in "football fun!" and a club for a "great golfer!" In Wacky Weekend, kids' fingers through the double die-cut holes throughout become the legs of a trapeze artist, skateboarder and dancer. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Part of the "Funny Fingers" series, this board book is designed for interaction. There is a hole cut out for little fingers. For example, the hole on the cover lets a finger serve as the arm of a policeman directing traffic. Inside this same finger is used as an artist's paint brush, a chef's spoon, a helicopter pilot's propeller, a teacher's pointer and so on. The images are brightly colored and amusing and the text is alliterative. It is a board book that will be fun and one that introduces a variety of professions. 2003, Sterling, Ages 1 to 3.
