It’s never too early for kids to start believing in something incredible. For my boys, especially Carter, the marvellous world of comic books and super heroes is just beginning to open up. Still a bit young to be reading the real thing, author David Bar Katz’s excellent hardcover books series on the world’s greatest super heroes, is just the thing to get my budding comic geeks a buzz. With bold and classic comic illustrations in titles such as the fun and interactive touch and feel “My First Batman Book” and “My First Superman Book“, its easy to turn a lazy day in pyjamas into a “POW” and “BAM” adventure!
An average day, with standard questions from my 5 year old. Generally, I have it covered. Occasionally, I stumble. I turned to OKIDO Studio. The Arts and Science Magazine for kids. I picked up this big chunky bright book. ”What’s Inside?” I thought it would be a great book for the boy to further understand how things work.
The real magic in this book is in the transparent pages. There is text throughout, but the real understanding comes in the way the book is so interactive.
”What happens when you grow? Touch the skin on your arm. Can you feel the muscles and bones underneath? They grow bigger as you grow up.”
With the image prompt in the corner of the pages, hold the page up to the light to see ‘What’s Inside…
The cute characters Zam, Zim and Zoom lead you through from learning what’s inside your body, machines, the world of nature, buildings and then onto a section where you can draw what you’d like to put in the presents, fridge, tree.
It’s a large sturdy book of 94 pages of bright, engaging and interesting clear illustrations. A book for them both to go back to again and again.
We got our copy of OKIDO’s ”What’s Inside?” from The Kid Who.
