Product Description

From Amazon

Count to 10, explore the alphabet, discover shapes, learn about opposites, and find the missing teddy bear in this big, colorful board book. Sesame Street's beloved Elmo guides young readers to lift more than 60 flaps to reveal humorous and edifying surprises. Over the word "dry," Grover gazes unsuspectingly into a garden hose. Turn the flap and guess what happens! Grover learns all about "wet." A towering pyramid of alphabet blocks contains objects starting with the same letter behind each flap: alligator, book, cookies. Large, sturdy flaps allow rough-tough toddler hands to clutch and pull as much as they want with minimal risk of tearing. Children will adore the bright, bold illustrations of Jim Henson's familiar Muppet characters and beg to return to this book again and again. (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter

I bought this book for my daughter as part of her birthday present when she turned 1. I did not think that she would love it as much as she does. She is now 17 months old and she still carries it around everywhere. Here favorite part is at the end when Elmo needs help finding his beloved teddy bear. When we find it together, she always gives the bear a big kiss and claps HOORAY!

Buy this book only if you're prepared to read it *all* the time! I love that this book has helped teach my 2 yo son his letters, numbers, shapes, opposites, etc., but he has to read it every night before bed and he has to sleep with it! This has been going on since we got it for Christmas! I'm so sick of it, I came online to find another Elmo lift-and-look book. For my son's bedtime reading ritual, I have to read Elmo first or he won't concentrate on the other books--constantly saying "I wanna read Elmo" as I'm trying to read a different book! Thankfully, there's enough going on each page that I can make up stories about the characters or play games like finding circles in the numbers page to mix things up a bit! Ah well, thanks Elmo :-)

I purchased this book for my son for Christmas because he loves lift-the-flap books and Elmo. I thought it would be a great combination. My son enjoys the book tremendously and it's great for rides in the car. It keeps him occupied when he gets bored with looking at the scenery or watching the movie in the entertainment system. Elmo demonstrates important concepts for toddlers and pre-schoolers alike while making learning fun.
The only thing I dislike about the book (and most lift-the-flap books in general) is the potential for ripping. I haven't yet found a book of this nature that could stand up to a toddler's abuse. While I can't blame the book for its construction, I can't rate it 5 stars because of it's durability.

This book is excellent. It covers all the bases--practice with numbers, letters, shapes, opposites and more while using everyday objects and favorite characters to "teach" them all. Plus, there's the fun of lifting the "flaps" to see what's behind many different objects--an activity of great interest to children. My son just loves this book (he's 18 months). He's a big fan of reading, and this certainly would be in his top 3 favorites. I just can't say enough about this book! (As a teacher, I have a great appreciation for how well this book is organized and what all it covers. Teaching and learning is a snap with materials like this!)

I purchased this book for my son who was not even 2 years old at the time and wow! This book was a huge success. It was a great way to introduce numbers, letters and opposites. My son could not get enough of it. He is nearly 3 years old now and still loves this book. It is a lot of fun to watch your child know what to expect from the pages and play along with the pictures. Although it is now extremely "used" and in need of replacement due to excessive use (my son may have loved it a little too much!), it is well worth the money of purchasing a new one. My daughter who is currently 6 months will now get her chance to experience Elmo the same way my son did.

Like the review before, this is the 3rd time I've bought this book because it is so loved and worn out. My 22 month old will ask for this book and look and look until she finds it. It is her absolute favorite. She loves all the flaps (and there are lots). We have several other books with flaps, but she always wants this one and she doesn't even really like sesame street yet. This book is not your typical board book size. It is large so it would be hard for a really young baby(say 9 mo.) to hold it. Buy it. It is wonderful.

My son received this book on his 2nd birthday and absolutely loves it to this very day (he is currently 3 1/2 yrs. old). It has helped him learn his numbers, colors, opposites and shapes in the most delightful way! The board pages have helped this book last this long with constant use. The lift-and-look flaps are intriguing to the readers and they really have FUN learning. I have purchased this book as gifts for birthdays and Christmas...it's a sure winner for toddlers and preschoolers

I bought this book for my daughter when she was 10 months old. It was the first book to truly capture her attention and now she absolutely loves to read stories together. She would spend time "reading" this book by herself 4 to 5 times daily. She is now 15 months old and still loves it. It is durable, although not rip-proof. We have since discovered that all of her older cousins received this book as young children and each still has it (at 9 to 12 years of age.) Enjoy.
