The cuteness factor is through the roof in this board book!! I can’t handle how adorable this is!
The design is really lovely and clever with die-cut openings and felt fabric flaps to look under. We have to search for Mermaid under the seaweed by lifting the seaweed green flap to reveal Octopus underneath! I love how this design gets young readers using tactile movements and coordination.
Another great thing about this book is how we are told particular characteristics of Mermaid’s appearance, and we have to guess where she is hiding.
“Mermaid has purple hair. Could this be Mermaid hiding behind the seaweed?”
The illustration shows purple tentacles peeking from behind the seaweed, but it’s only Octopus behind there. This is so wonderful for cognitive development to get children guessing and wondering and putting together the clues.
I love the illustrations in this book! Each page is so colorful and bright.
The felt flaps are sewn in tightly and each page is thick. The construction is very sturdy to withstand little hands.
