Overview

Young children love books that invite them to participate in the action, which is just what this brightly illustrated board book does. By placing their fingers through the die-cut opening on each page, they can make the characters move and bring the story to life.

Each page of this charming book presents an animal or an other character engaged in a different activity. Children will be eager to jump into the action by placing their fingers in the openings and moving them. By wiggling their fingers, they can help a bird fly, see a happy dog wag its tail, make an elephant's trunk swing, see an octopus wave its tentacles, and bring many other characters to life. The text describes what each animal is doing, but because children create the action themselves, they will soon be making up their own stories.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The worm wriggling out of an apple looks a lot like a fingertip, and the toe peeking out of a threadbare sock looks just like a thumb in My New Friends, by Karin Blume and Brigitte Pokornik, one of two interactive volumes in the Funny Fingers board book series. Die-cut holes are sized and placed in the pictures so that one to four fingers fit, making the brightly hued illustrations come pointedly to life. The same author/artists also pitch Circus, in which daring digits make their big top debut.
