Clap, Clap! is the latest release from Flying Eye Books. An interactive book that wants young readers to use their imagination and their hands, one on each side to create a unique storytelling experience.
The book invites the reader to open and close the book on each page to emphasise the action, such as someone knocking on the door, two friends hi-fiving in the park, a butterfly flapping it's wings and a boy banging his drum. There are 15 experiences, with the number printed clearly in the top right corner.
I was able to explain to Aoife and the knocking on the door page caught her attention. I was rather impressed she was able to open and close the book to make it look like the man was knocking. Clap, Clap! is recommended for ages 3-5 though I think children from possibly 2 would be able to understand the idea.
Clap, Clap! is filled with bold colours and large images. I like Madalena's colourful style, which looks good against the white background; it has a nice clean look which works with the curved corners and thick paper. I rather like this idea, it's something different and looks good!
Clap, Clap! will be available from the 16th February, for more information, click here.
