As stated on the front and back cover, Roar! Roar! has sturdy big flaps to lift and asks the question 'Can You Say It Too?' - Its been specially designed for children who are just starting to talk and for any little one who enjoys making animal noises! Its part of the Can You Say It Too? range, all of which Sebastien Braun has illustrated for Nosy Crow.
Each page spread asks 'Who’s that…' and the child is encouraged to pull down the flap to reveal the animal hiding, with words on the back of each flap introducing the animal and what sound it makes. I think this book, and the whole range, makes a lovely way of encouraging children to try to talk, introducing what each animal looks like, their name and learning about the sounds they can make. A lovely first book for the very young, recommended age 9 months+.
Roar! Roar! is available to pre-order in bookshops and from the Nosy Crow website.
