Tuck Me In! Dean Hacohen and Sherry Scharschmidt

I think this book is adorable!

Which is why I'm celebrating it even though it is officially a picture book and we usually blog about board and novelty books for totz here on readertotz. But Tuck Me In could so easily become a lift-the-flap board book. The text is simple, the subject is dear and familiar to totz, and the illustrations are young and have eye-appeal. Most of the pages show an animal with a big flap that is to be used as a blanket. I love that this book empowers totz to take the adult action of tucking in a baby--animal babies in this case.

From the back cover:

All the Baby Animals are ready for bed.
Will you help tuck them in?
You will? Great!
Just turn the pages and tuck them in, one by one.
(And don't forget to say "Good night!")

Tuck Me In!

I hope they convert it to a lift-the-flap, Joan!
