To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I got this book for my lift-the-flap loving 8 month old for Thanksgiving. Months later, it's still a go-to book that he pulls out of his book box. The flaps are also easy to repair if your child is particularly excited about "WHAT'S BEHIND THE GATE?!" I speak with great authority on the flap-repairing issue.
This is listed as a board book so you expect it to be sturdy. However ; the flaps are thin paper and very flimsy. I can't let my toddler look at this book by himself bc he'll tear the flaps right off. Also upon receiving, the front of book was fairly scratched. If I'd bought this for a gift I would have sent it back due to scratches. The story and illustrations are okay, nothing special.
Cute books. My 3 year old loves these books. She received her first one (pumpkin) when she was born and as she grew, she could lift the pages. They are nice and short books. So reading several at bedtime is fine with me! She memorized the words and often “reads” it back to me.
My daughter, who is turning 1 in a couple of days, LOVES this book! She wants me to read it over and over and over! So glad I bought her other titles from Karen Katz for her birthday. I'm sure I'll be reading those over and over as well.
