Reading to toddlers can be challenging. They're tempted to turn pages before you've finished reading them, pull, tug and turn pages while you're trying to read to them. Interactive books to the rescue!
Interactive books are meant to engage little ones with pages meant to be pulled, tugged and turned. I remember reading interactive board books to my little ones and their excitement pulling tabs on pages to see what was hiding below.
Silver Dolphin Books provided us with some interactive books to review and it has been a joy sharing this books with the Littlest One and others.
Push-Pull-Turn: Dump Truck Gets to Work!, Fire Truck to the Rescue!, and Up in the Air! ($15.99; Ages 4 and up) introduce young children to a construction site, emergency vehicles, and flying machines in each interactive, oversized book.

Each title features a lively story with flaps to open and tabs to pull to engage busy kids on the go!

Follow the trail for an exciting adventure with a rocket ship, a train, a boat, and more things that go in Trace Race: Things That Go ($9.99; Ages 3 and up)!

Interactive books are a great way to engage toddlers and get them excited about reading. It worked for us. Our three boys and little old lady are avid readers. I never imagined seeing my love of reading manifested in my children but it has and in a major way. Reading helps increase their comprehension skills and is a respite from the hustle and bustle of their busy schedules.
