What did you like about the book?   These two new additions to the series feature sturdy board pages, felt flaps and a mirror.  The felt flaps make it easy for the youngest babies to manipulate. 

In Where’s thePuffin? the flaps reveal a variety of birds: a kingfisher, a blackbird, a swan, and the puffin.  Where’s the Queen? takes readers to London where the flaps reveal a police office, a bus driver, a soldier and the Queen.  The felt flaps come in a variety of shapes from a bird house to a red double decker bus.  The final page asks “Where are you?” and a lift of the flap reveals a mirror.  The bright and simple graphic illustrations appeal to young readers. These books are sure to be enjoyed by very young readers.  

Anything you didn’t like about it? No
