This board book helps little readers to explore the different types of planes, ships, and cars. As you lift each flap on the page, a new type of transportation is revealed. There is a hot air balloon hidden behind some clouds, and a surprise submarine hiding under the waves.

I think it’s very cool that all the flaps are different sizes. There are big ones and little ones to help develop hand-eye coordination in little baby readers. The flaps are fairly thick and sturdy, but the smaller ones are still liable to get torn if you aren’t careful.

One main kind of transportation that is NOT included in this book is trains. So if your little one was hoping for a book with trains, this is not it. There are only cars, trucks, boats, and planes.

I love the colorful illustrations! Every page is so attractive with bright colors that are sure to grab the attention of little readers. And all the little animal characters are so cute!

What are Unicorns Made Of? by Amelia Hepworth

Unicorns might be filled with jelly beans or popcorn. Are their manes “made of marshmallow”? Are “their horns filled with butterflies”? At the end of the book, we find out the truth about unicorns and their magic, as a pop-up unicorn prances across the page.

I think it’s so cute that the unicorn’s mane on the cover is made of actual string. It’s so pretty! It’s little details like that which make this book so special. There is glitter on the cover too.

I love the sweet illustrations! The artwork is colorful and bright, with all sorts of cute hearts and stars in the background. The unicorns are all different colors, and there are little bunnies and foxes and birds playing with them.

This whole book is adorable!
