What a simple idea: a book of beards. And one of masks. And one of hats. And one of teeth. How fun! I think they’re definitely worth checking out if you haven’t done so already. Especially if you have younger children ages 5 and younger. Although older children may enjoy these books too.
These fun, interactive board books are great for children and adults alike. They allow for make-believe games and hilarous snapshot memories! So far we’ve only read the Book-O-Beards book in this series. Next, we’re going to check out the Book-O-Hats. I think the kids might be a bit too young for the Book-O-Masks and the Book-O-Teeth. I’m not sure if they’d be a bit scared so I’m just going to steer clear of those two until they’re a bit older. We’ve definitely had our fair share of laughs with the Book-O-Beards book though.
Book-O-Beards allows children (and adults) to become a lumberjack, a pirate, a cowboy, a sailor, a police officer, or Santa. It also helps kids role-play different personas as they try on some full-spread, fully bushy beards. Plus, there are catchy rhymes, colorful illustrations, and interactive dialogue. You can’t go wrong with these cute read-alouds to spice up your story time.
Your turn: Have you ever read any of the wearable books in this series? What are some other fun, interactive books you’ve read with your kids?
