Playbook Pirates: Corina Fletcher
Back in September, Joan recommended Playbook Farm. I second her call with Playbook Pirates!
Imagine a box. Opened, there's an envelope on the left which holds all your play pieces. On the right is a book which tells of the jolly pirates' adventures through Corina Fletcher's text. However, the book can be removed from the box and transformed into a large board for play. At that point, the boat, lighthouse, shipwreck, mermaids, octopus, and island are 3 dimensional pop-ups.
Additionally, on the back of each book spread, there are fun facts and questions about life at sea. Britta Teckentrup's digital illustrations look like cut paper collage. The textures and layers bring so much to the imagery.
Nosy Crow creates such great quality. Have fun reading and playing with Playbook Pirates. Note: due to small pieces, only for ages 3 and older.
