playing with books

So often some of the books that attract even the most reluctant of readers can not be shelved in the library. I speak, of course, of movable books, pop-ups and the like. RIBBIT is one of those books that kids will love to play with until they have exhausted all the possible combinations. Our hero, the frog, has three movable sections: head, mouth, and body. You can flip any or all of the three sections and create a frog who is wearing pearls, a fisherman's cap and spurs. Or maybe you would prefer a painter hat with a medical frock and "baited" breath? Lots of fun.
