The fourth title in this lift-the-flap series by Karen Katz, Buzz, Buzz, Baby! shows a number of cute babies discovering members of the insect world. As you lift the flap in each two-page spread, you’ll help toddlers find ladybugs, green caterpillars, an itsy-bitsy spider, some very busy bees, teeny-tiny ants, and a swarm of flickering fireflies.

Katz’s accompanying illustrations feature nice, large babies dressed in brightly colored clothing. The flaps are easy to manage, and usually there is more than a single insect pictured so you can do a little counting practice as well. The attractiveness of these “Baby” books is that the oversized images are easy to focus on and attract a young child’s attention. For very young children (under seven months), bright, bold colors and large illustrations are preferable for introducing them to picture books.

The flaps add an interactive element which will appeal to a slightly older child and create some mystery. You can ask, “What’s behind that cobweb? What’s that flying behind those flowers?” By combining the flaps with the large illustrations, Katz has created a book that will hold a child’s attention for a longer time than the average board book, which often “grows old” all too quickly.
