Hello, friends! We’re mixing things up a bit today and giving you two reviews in one: Tuck Me In! and Who’s Hungry?, both by Dean Hacohen and Sherry Scharschmidt, two adorable interactive books about bedtime and mealtime!
The premise of each book is simple: the titles ask the question of who is hungry or tired, and each page has a different animal saying that they are! Then, the reader flips a flap over to; in Tuck Me In!, tuck the animal into bed or, in Who’s Hungry?, feed them their preferred food.
These books were so great! They are perfect for babies and toddlers, with bright, colorful, and friendly illustrations, and simple yet educational interaction that any reader who can turn a page can participate in. Both books teach identifying animals, and Who’s Hungry? has the added bonus of teaching about their diets as well. Even the pages are made of a sturdy material for younger readers who can be a bit tough on books. JJ had so much fun with these, she played with them for a long while after storytime! These are great staples for any baby bookworm’s library, and we highly recommend them! Baby Bookworm approved!
