I recently got the Old MacDonald hand puppet and board book combination from Scholastic. It has become a favorite toy for my grandson. The five colorful animals attract his attention and he loves the feeling of the animals, particularly the stripped orange cat, in his mouth. I'm actually quite amazed that the puppet is holding up so well with such rough use.
When I saw that Scholastic had another hand puppet and board book combination, I immediately ordered it. This one is all black and white with a panda bear, a dog, a zebra, a cow, and a cat. There is also a cute little rhyme included in the board book.
I wasn't sure if my grandson would like the black and white but he seems quite taken with the animals. The heads of these characters are quite soft with lots of detail. My grandson likes to touch, squeeze, and pet them.
