This is a beautiful gift book.
With playful text and vibrant, three-dimensional collage art, this board book, "The SunMaid Raisins Play Book," invites little fingers everywhere to dive into a favorite snack box as they help decorate everything from cookies to ladybugs to snowmen. The pages are laminated for easy cleaning. Full color.
Great learning resource.
ISBN 0689831307 - Play with your food! Come on, you know they're going to do it, why not just accept it and turn it into a positive? Is it marketing? Well, of course it is - but so are Care Bear books, Disney books... they're going to be marketed to, and at least raisins are good for them!
On facing pages, there are two images. One is completed and the other needs some help. The reader finishes the picture by adding a few raisins. Pictures include a Dalmatian, a snowman and other fun items.
While all board books have sturdy pages, this one is extra heavy duty. The pages are also high-gloss, so they wipe clean easily. This is a book that is what you make of it - a way to get your kid to eat raisins, a counting book, just a chance to play together, you decide. That makes it a superb addition to your collection. From this series, I personally like ISBN 068984008X The Cheerios Christmas Play Book best of all.
