Publishers Imagine That have recently released a lovely series of interactive books including Goodnight Bear and Goodnight Lion.
Each book is a sturdy board book written by Joshua George preparing little ones for bedtime but in Goodnight Bear, Bear requires some help. She would like to say good night to all her friends but needs assistance in finding her friends amongst the night scenes. Using the magic torch that comes with the book, young readers can help Bear search for the animals.
My youngest little poppet (who is showing how to use the book in the photos) absolutely adores this book. The interactive element of the story makes her feel part of the story and that she is actually helping Bear. Searching for the animals in turn explores mathematical language and the night element and magical torch made my eldest and I talk science.
This is a lovely read. As well as the cheery illustrations by Zhanna Ovocheva and the interactive element, the rhythmic text makes for a fun read aloud. It highlights how different the sky and surroundings are when it is night time.
Also worth noting, the torch is attached to the book so much less likely to be separated from the book. Super!
