What our experts think
Busy Reindeer is a colourful book featuring moving parts which engage children’s interest in reading and help to develop their budding language skills. The pages, moving wheels and levers are easy for little hands to turn, encouraging their dexterity and hand-eye coordination.
The questions featured throughout the story keep children interested and are a great way to extend the learning benefits and bonding between parent and child. As well as encouraging communication, discussing the story and characters is a good way of introducing little ones to comprehension, which is a key skill in literacy development.
