We were sent two of these ingenious little books to review, I must admit it took the four year old and myself a little time to figure out how to unfold them correctly! Actually I think my youngest was considerably quicker to do it than me…
The look of surprise on my son’s face when he saw the book open in such a creative way, I have never seen anything like it (and I have seen LOTS of books in my time!).
I actually find it quite therapeutic opening and unfolding the book again and again, something nice and calming to do with your hands!
For £4.99 they are the perfect stocking filler or small present for a child (perhaps for good behaviour or doing well at school). The story is quite small, bite sized really, but it’s the novelty of the unfolding book that really makes the Clever Book range stand out. Being an active book encourages children to get involved in reading, they enjoy the challenge and the excitement of watching the story unfold.
My son loved the books so much he wanted to take them to his grandparents for lunch. I think everyone who comes here from now on will get a quick demonstration of its virtues.
With Autumn Publishing I am used to them coming up with unique book idea’s, I love their scented books so its natural for them to keep coming up with cutting edge book ideas! I wonder what treat we will be in store next…
The Clever Book range is available to buy from the website.
