Bedtime for Baby Book Reviews: 5 Wonderful Interactive Reads for Toddlers from Silver Dolphin Books

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.
 
Secret word:  SilverDolphinBooks
Each title features a lively story with flaps to open and tabs to pull to engage busy kids on the go! Lift the loader’s bucket, pull the fire truck’s ladder, and make the stunt plane do loop-de-loops, all while learning the basic parts and functions of each vehicle. Includes interactive flaps, wheels, and tabs.
 
 
Join Squirrel as he climbs higher and higher up a tree in his quest for one big surprise in Up, Up, Up in the Tree ($9.99; Ages 3 and up)! With flaps to lift and peek-through holes, there’s lots to spot, count, and discover along the way in this beautifully illustrated and fun storybook. Includes flaps to lift and peek-through holes for extra fun and learning.

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)! This storybook includes unique cutout paths for toddlers to follow with their fingers as they encounter vehicles in fun settings. With adorable illustrations and rhyming text, this on-the-go book is perfect for interactive story time.

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.

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
