11 Best Flap Books For Toddlers Update 05/2022

One way to play hide and seek is to read books with flaps. Lift the flap books are based on this game. I think the books were always going to be a hit because of how excited my daughter gets when she plays. Our toddlers love the sense of surprise they get when they turn the pages and find the next flap to open to see what is inside. The little ones don’t seem to get excited even when they open each flap for the hundredth time. Because I can’t say for sure that this level of excitement will still be there for us moms! They’re good for both babies who can see how to use the book and toddlers who can get in on the fun and see what they can find in each book. I think that mummies should keep an eye on their kids while they read these books, especially if they are younger. In the past, I have found parts missing and chewed up like a puppy.

When my daughter saw what was under each flap, she just couldn’t stand it. As well as being fun to play with, these interactive books are great for your toddlers to improve their fine motor skills. The younger toddlers can use the books to learn some new words, and the older toddlers can use them to improve their speech and imagination.

Spot’s Birthday Party By Eric Hill

It’s a different version of the Where’s Spot book, and Spot the dog is having a lot of fun running around the house looking for his animal friends and hiding.

As a child, I used to love the Spot books. Now I can read them with my 15-month-old. These books are great for teaching our kids adverbs like “behind,” “on,” “in,” and more, while also giving them a visual example with the images on each page, so they can see how these words work.

Playtown By Roger Priddy

Playtown is a good lift the flap book for older toddlers because there are more complex images and more advanced words for them to learn from the book. However, there’s no harm in buying this book a little early and giving it to our friends who are interested. I’m drawn to this book right away because it has a fun front cover that looks like a rainbow.

Never judge a book by its cover. In this case, how can you not?
