Playtime: Maureen Roffey

What a clever novelty board book! (It's not a true board book, but the pages are sturdy enough for totz.) Each page explores a playtime activity and has a pull-down tab that transforms the picture.  A ballerina points her toes, a child reads a book, another skips rope.

The text is simple:

I'm a ballerina.
I can point my toes.

Each spread explores a playtime activity. One of my favorites shows a girl painting a "big hairy spider" which began as a green dot.

A unique book that totz will enjoy, playtime or not!
