Top 10 lift-the-flap books your kids will go wild for
Please refresh the page and retry. Picture books for children often include unusual textures or pop-ups, which are thought to encourage engagement and keep youngsters interested. But researchers found that when toddlers have to hunt for a word or object they are less likely to remember it. In tests with 31 toddlers , those who used books with lift-up-flaps were half as likely to remember words compared to those using normal books. For the experiment the toddlers were split in to two groups. Each group were asked to look through a book with a researcher that contained nine food objects including a new fruit they had not seen before — a starfruit. Around 68 per cent of the youngsters who looked at the book without flaps correctly remembered the starfruit at the end of the session compared to just 30 per cent of those who were given books with flaps.
Baby LOVES Lift-the-Flap books

Alphabet by Matthew Van Fleet lost every head and trunk and ear within a few months when Ella was a baby and many of our other lift the flap books have met similar fates. Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell This is my very favorite lift the flap book. It only has six pages and every one of my children have been completely obsessed with it.
Last updated on August 19th, I have never asked my aunt if this present was an idle choice, but I suspect, knowing her wily ways, she very much knew what she was doing. She understood that, when my son turned about 9 months old, his special lift-the-flap book switch was bound to flick on, and that she had not just bought us a simple book, but hours and hours of entertainment and pleasure — far better than any noisy, flashy toy. Four years later, and sure enough, my one year old daughter is now demanding multiple daily reads; her strong, tiny fingers grasp and pull at the flaps to reveal the oh too tall giraffe, that cheeky monkey and, of course, the perfect puppy. However, whilst Dear Zoo has stood the test of time, it is fair to say that some of our subsequently purchased flap-books are now looking a little less, well…flappy.
