PRESS, KISS, KNOCK HERE - Captivating Interactive Board Books in German
Do you know interactive books, Mitmachbücher? They are great fun! As the name implies, the kids don't just listen passively, but some action is required - pressing, caressing, blowing - and once the page is turned, it seems the pressing, caressing and hence your kid controls the story. Kids love them. They'll want to do it again and again!
Some toddlers are restless and antsy. You may wonder - how on earth will my daughter sit still and listen to me reading? One sure recipe to get her attention is an interactive book. Flaps and the like help - but actually influencing the story beats everything else.
Here are some of the best of them:
All of them can be borrowed from KinderBooks. Sent us an email if you would like one of them in your next shipment.
TUPFST DU NOCH DIE TRÄNEN AB?
This is part 3 of an adorable series of interactive board books with Hasenkind. Hasenkind experiences everything your little one goes through daily: bed routines, bath routines. And sometimes, though hopefully not daily, he hurts himself. Your little one will blow and kiss and do everything to make him feel better.
For 2 years and up.
Part 1: NUR NOCH KURZ DIE OHREN KRAULEN
Part 2: BADETAG FÜR HASENKIND
At first sight this book might seem a little abstract or simple - its illustrations only consist of blue, yellow and red dots. But it is a very clever book, that teaches colors, numbers and imagination. To your child it will seem like true magic!
For 3 years and up.
FUNKLE, HELLER STERN
This book manages to be interactive and soothing at the same time, the perfect good night story! What happens between sunset and sunrise? You'll wave good bye to the daylight, touch the brightest star and see fireflies, deer, owls and more. Good to teach about nature, too!
For 3 years and up.

HAPPS GAANZ VORSICHTIG ÖFFNEN!
Less interactive then the other books - it might require some acting on your part actually - this book is still great fun and imaginative. A crocodile gets squeezed into a good night story about a little duckling and is furious. Shall you quickly shut the book? Or dare read along?
