“They’ve really developed their books, the pictures look fuller and the tabs really accentuate the pages and make the page more exciting as the tab is lifted.” – Teacher
What our experts think
The colour, detail and interactive features in Busy Sports Day makes it a great book for encouraging little ones to develop an interest in reading. As children push, pull and slide the tabs, they reveal different parts of the scene which help to encourage discussion and learning.
Describing what is happening in the story and what has changed from scene to scene is a great way of developing observation and language skills and is an important part of reading comprehension. Moving the tabs also helps children to explore cause and effect, as they observe what is happening as a result of their actions, for example, children in the scene receiving medals.
