Delightful activity book for older children (and adults, too) with clear explanations shows how to create 34 fascinating shadows on a wall simply by positioning hands and fingers. Learn how to make a bird take flight, a duck quack, Toby the dog wag his tail, a rabbit munch his meal, and more. I try and find some books that my children could do independently. This was one that I chose, and I am so glad that I did. The kids were fascinated with all the neat hand shadows they could make out of their hands, and how relatively simple they were to copy and make! They already had a fascination with hand shadows and flashlights and now they are even more fascinated. The book has page after page of neat, detailed shadows that are somehow still very simple to make. What really struck me about this book is that it will be excellent for years to come, it was interesting enough for me to look through it and try the shadows in addition to my very young children. I can't recommend a book higher than this one!
