Wee Gallery Farm and Hush! Little Bear Is Sleeping by QED, Children's, Picture book, Board book, 10/10E)




 October 2016, QED Publishing, 8 pages, Board book, Review copy 

Farm summary from QED 
Little fingers can easily learn how to move the novelty sliders to reveal favorite animals and their names and sounds in this interactive board book. Beautiful illustrations, bold lines, whimsical animals, and repeating patterns are designed to stimulate visual development in young infants.

Hush! Little Bear is Sleeping summary from QED 
Features five different sound chips and adorable illustrations carefully created to help children's awareness development.

Nayu's thoughts 
This ace series comes with noise! Farm is of the standard no noise book, with easy to slide parts on the page with the animal on. Hush..Little Bear is Sleeping was a pleasant surprise because on each page there's a button to press! Unfortunately I didn't have the right battery so don't know what the noises sound like, nonethless it's a clever addition, adding a new dimension to the classic sliding books.

The animals are easy to recognise with various black patterns on their body - I've heard babies respond to black and white images which I guess this is why the series is like this. There are splashes of colour but nothing too elaborate. The books are sturdy enough to handle frequent handling and I look forward to more books in the future.

CRAFT ETC
Not really done anything this week craft wise or baking – I made a cute crochet snowflake coaster...



...which was fun to make up using the few stitches I know to create it.
 

Gaming wise I ploughed through and completed Aikatsu Stars My Special Appeal. Well, the story mode. Still got a good 500+ outfits to unlock! It is total awesome...




On Animal Crossing New Leaf I received the newest amiibo card set, which is a Sanrio collection! I've started using them and can dress in a super cute outfit GINA PIC HERE PLEASE from the My Melody card! It's annoying I can only use 1 card a day, but I guess there had to be limits to using them someone. Due to getting some ordinary amiibo cards...




I also played a bit on Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer, which was great fun creating a room for the new resident.
