All books in Barron's Chunky Safari series stand right up on their feet and do double duty as storybooks and toys. When closed, they're shaped like wild animals, and have amusing faces and button eyes that roll and wiggle. When kids open the extra-thick board pages of these books they find an entertaining little animal story in easy to understand words, with full-color illustrations on every page. Preschool kids will love these books. When they've finished this story, they can close the covers and use the elephant to create stories of their own.
