ACTIVITY BOOK REVIEWS: On the Farm by Mattia Cerato/On the Site by Melisande Luthringer


ABOUT THE BOOK

Have you ever wondered what life is like on the farm? Find out with this fun and sunny interactive activity book! Unfold this book, and there's your stand-up play scene. Customize your farm with the reusable stickers and punch-out, stand-up characters, and you're ready for action. What kinds of animals you have on your farm and what you grow is up to you! Gather eggs, feed the pigs, milk the cows, plant the crops; it's never a dull day on the farm! Includes a 48-page activity book with cool facts about farm vehicles and animals, puzzles, and games, plus punch-out characters, reusable stickers, and a fold-out barnyard scene.

REVIEW

When they say activity book, they aren't kidding.  This book includes exactly what is says on the cover: stickers, press-outs, and puzzles and games.  Specifically this means there is a farm background attached to the end of the book (which can be detached), several pages of character press-outs (farmer, children, and animals) that can be used to play with the background or the board game on the back of the background.  In addition there are a bunch of pages with mazes, dot-to-dot activities, tic-tac-toe, how to draw pages, and coloring pages.  The stickers can of course be used for whatever, but they are intended to decorate the 'stage' background.  There is a great deal of fun here contained in this $10.00 package.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Have you ever wanted to be in charge of your own construction site? With this awesome interactive activity book, you can! Unfold this book, and there's your stand-up play scene. Customize your construction site with the reusable stickers and punch-out, stand-up characters, and you're ready for action! What you build on your construction site is up to you! Use dump trucks, excavators and bulldozers to move dirt and build houses and skyscrapers.

REVIEW

This is a thoroughly engaging activity book that includes a variety of different activities.  The back cover of the book provides a play background on one side with a board game on the other.  The book also includes four pages of pop-out characters and construction vehicles along with stickers for decorating the site (the stickers can be reused).  The rest of the book includes mazes, coloring pages, a memory game (pieces to be cut out), how to draw pages, dot-to-dot pictures, and information about some of the different equipment to be found on a construction site.  For young children who are interested in construction or building activities this would be a great addition to their book collection.
