Where Are Baby's Easter Eggs?: A Lift-the-Flap Book (Karen Katz Lift-the-Flap Books)

This delightful picture board book is a wonderful way to introduce baby to Easter, with its bright and bold springtime colours and interactive features.

It is a lift-the-flap book, so baby can enjoy playing a little Easter egg hunt as each flap uncovers a hidden object, until finally baby's eggs are found in the fold-out scene at the end of the book.

Other features include bright, glittery foil areas of the pictures to catch baby's eye. Ideal for babies and beyond, as lift-the-flap books remain popular as little ones grow (my 3 year old still loves all of hers!)
