What our experts think
This colourful book has lots of lovely detail and interesting features for little ones to explore. The theme of Busy Storytime sparks children’s creativity, encouraging them to think about make-believe worlds and fostering an interest in reading.
Children were very engaged in pushing, pulling and sliding the tabs, which challenges their hand-eye coordination and also helps them to explore cause and effect, as they observe what is happening as a result of their actions (e.g. the pirate ship moving back and forth). Describing what is happening in the story and how the scene changes is a great way of developing language skills and is also an important part of reading comprehension.
