A lovely lift-the-flap book for animal fans!
If you have fur babies at home or just littles that are crazy about cats and dogs, they will love this lift-the-flap book written by Teresa Porcella and illustrated by Santo Pappalardo.
Puppies and kittens are the main characters of the book. Each spread shows an everyday object and a clue of what might have happened after pets interaction. When kids lift the flap, they find the furry cuddles’ reactions towards the item. How many differences between dogs and cats can you spot?
Along its pages, the book reflects the tendency for the relationship between the two species to be antagonistic. However, they will find out that while puppies and kittens are very different, they both are great companions and can become furry close friends.
