A lift-the-flap book
Author and Illustrator: Rod Campbell
Publisher: Pan Macmillan
Target audience: Baby and toddler
Format: Board book, Paperback (18 pages)
It's my birthday! I'm having a party. All my friends have brought presents... shall we open them?
By the same creator as Dear Zoo, and very much following the same format. The gift behind each flap is shown on a plain white background. Text is minimal and well away from the pictures. The pictures are simple and clear but could be further improved if desired by adding thicker and blacker outlines with a marker pen.
As with Dear Zoo, it is very easy to turn this book into a sensory story by finding real objects and boxes from around the house. It also, therefore, provides a useful way of helping young children associate 2D images with the real object, which can be a challenge for many children with CVIs.
