Title: Little Friends Home Sweet Home
By: Sarah Powell (Priddy Books)
Illustrations by: Barbi Sido
For: Children 1-3 years old
This is a lovely little Lift- the-Flap book where Baby Owl looks for the animals that live in different habitats. She visits animals in the forest, river, arctic, and mountains, and the book concludes with Baby Owl deciding that she loves all these places but home sweet home in her nest is the place she adores.
The illustrations by Barbi Sido are charming, bright and whimsical. Children always seem to love the surprise of lift-the-flap books, and our kids (especially our owl-obsessed daughters) requested this one again and again.
The flaps on this book are reasonably durable; they’ve stood up to one toddler and one baby/toddler so far in our house. They are almost the size of a whole page, so no tiny flaps that are frustrating to tiny fingers. I’d recommend it for ages one and up, when they have the motor skills to open the flaps themselves and treat them with a little bit of care.
Amazon has a “Look Inside” feature for this one so you can see some of the illustrations.
