Around the World (Trace the Trail)
|Series:||Trace the Trail|
A world tour that you can, literally, follow with your finger! This interactive book for toddlers lets them explore the world by tracing a tactile pathway. Each spread features an animal that is leaping mountains, swimming oceans, or zigzagging though the desert.
Over rocks and snow you leap, a goat can climb the mountains steep.
Two board books, in a new series Trace the Trail, help young children understand the world around them. In each of these books we are taken on a journey through a particular environment and have to navigate our way along the route provided. there is minimal text, but well chosen and rhymes in a way that carries the story along. What I really like are the delineated paths which a child can follow with their fingers and which provide that sense of interaction with the story. The pictures are simple, bright and each double page spread is in a different colour combination, which reflects the environment being looked at. Carousel Magazine
