Interactive Books for Children

Books are awesome and ones with added interactive bits are a great way to bring a story to life.
Interactive books are especially suited for getting messages across to children of many ages in a lively way, like Dinosaur Diner by Annie Kubler. The star of this book is Dinosaur, whose eating habits are pretty unhealthy. He doesn’t do any exercise either. Dinosaur is brought to life by a finger puppet attached to the book. With the help of his healthy eating friends, Dinosaur tries to change his habits.Pass the Parcel is aimed at 3-6 year olds and encourages sensory development and curiosity. The book, also by Annie Kubler, is an introduction to shapes told in a bright and bold way.
Likewise The Lion Shares is a book that features a puppet and tells the story of a cheeky lion who gets more than his fair share of things. Will he learn to share?
Lift-the-flap book Please, Mr Crocodile tells the tale of animals trying to cross a river. But with Mr Crocodile in charge, will they be able to get across without being made a meal of by his snappy jaws? The repetition of the book’s refrain helps develop memory and literacy and is particularly good for beginner readers. The beauty of lift-the-flap books is that is is truly interactive for little hands.
The Runaway Train features a felt rain on a ribbon that readers can take on a journey through the pages. The rhyming text in this book encourages dialogue between child and adult as they explore the exciting places visited by the runaway train. This book is sure to be a favourite with your little one.
The popular rhyme “Ten Little Speckled Frogs” gets an interactive workout in the book of the same name. Maths and literacy skills get a workout as children can turn the dial as the frogs jump off the log into the cool pool.
