My youngest child is 13 years old and we still sometimes end up with new picture books on our shelves. This flippable book is especially cute. Read from one side then flip it and read from the other side. You end up in the same spot and it is all adorable. You see, tortoise and hedgehog both just want a hug and are turned down by all the other animals until they find each other in the center of the book.
It’s a creative concept that will keep what is a short picture book in the toddler rotation much longer. I think it would be a great addition to an Easter Basket. This book is brand spanking new so you can pick it up anywhere and get that immediate gratification.
My thanks to Faber and Faber for the review copy!
