Brilliant Board Books for Babies from Nosy Crow

Look, it’s Roar Roar Lion

  • Written by Camilla Reid
  • Illustrated by Clare Youngs

I absolutely love the foil detailing to the illustrations throughout this book, which feature large mammals including a zebra, monkey, hippo, and of course lion, with the sentences revealing the sounds the animals make each time too. As little ones admire the stunning illustrations of each of these they will also be able to look for smaller insects and amphibians that await them under the felt flaps that encourage interaction along the way. There is also a felt flap revealing a mirror at the end of the book to reveal readers reflections, and include them directly in the book. This is such a fabulous choice for those looking to introduce animals to little ones, or further inspire a love of them too. With the foil detailing, felt flaps, and a mirror, this board book is definitely the perfect gift for baby showers and birthdays, and a title to treasure too,

Inside this gorgeous foil detail board book there are farmyard animals that feature, and the sentences reflect the sounds they make. These two books would definitely make fabulous additions to any children’s book collection, and make for fantastic choices in Nursery settings too. I love the felt flaps revealing smaller insects/birds inside this book, and of course the mirror at the ending too. Both of these beautiful books have proven so incredibly popular with the little ones I have shared them with, and I am excited to continue doing so.

Where’s Mr Digger?

This is a hide and seek style book, with little ones being asked where the respective construction vehicle is, and then revealing them under the felt flaps that feature throughout the book. Children love vehicles, my nephew being one of those that loves to watch cars and buses going by, and this book ticks all the boxes for little ones with its bright and bold coloured illustrations, and the interactive aspect of the felt flaps, and mirror at the end too. I hope there are more vehicle based titles in this series because I have loved each and every one of the board books that Ingela has illustrated in collaboration with Nosy Crow, and I am excited for future titles.
