The book has different animals and hiding places on each page, ex: "Who says Peep?" (Lift the hen's wing and see a chick, and the word "chick.") Also another neat feature in the tabs for the hiding places are all different shapes and open in different directions (so it's not the same old lift-the-flap kind of book).
I was worried about the tabs breaking down but they have held up really, really well (even after the book has been thrown in the bathtub a few times!)
My suggestion would be for the parent to lift the tab a little and then let the child open it all the way (the tabs hold down quite well, so to avoid frustration I always start them for my daughter). A definite must for every child!
I bought a second copy for my nephew, and a third for my third child. My 15-month old absolutely loves this book--it's his favourite. Probably because it's small enough for a baby to hold, because there are flaps to lip and animal sounds to make, and because the pictures are very cute. He's ripped a couple of the flaps, so I have now bought a fourth copy so that once the first one is destroyed, I can bring out another. I don't mind, as the price is low and he loves it so much.
I wish more of these "Chunky Shape Books" were available--the small size is perfect, not only for a baby to hold but for bringing along in a purse or diaper bag. Highly recommended for baby gifts!
