Heads

Publisher: Simon and Schuster

Review

From frilled necks to floppy ears this follow-up to Van Fleet’s Alphabet and Tails, provides a playful way to teach toddlers about animals’ heads.

Attractive illustrations, impressively sturdy pull tabs, and touchable textures will guide children through the various members of the animal kingdom, including tigers and toucans, sloths and squirrels. And as each animal’s key facial feature is introduced - from long noses to short necks, slobbery mouths to slimy tongues - readers can learn about opposites, senses and actions.

The basic text and easy rhymes mean Heads is a great board book to read aloud, if only for the stunning lift-the-flap finale, which will make everyone shout ‘SPOUT’.
