with sliding picturesby Beatrix Potter
Jemimah Puddle-Duck and the sneaky fox who wants to eat her for dinner. There's a picture with another picture made out of strips; you pull a tap and all the strips shift and the picture changes. My one-year-old finds this fascinating, and she also loves it because the book is so teeny, just a few inches square, that it fits perfectly in her little hands. I can't leave it within reach or let her read it by herself though because I'm worried she would tear it. And even though the story is abbreviated it's still hard to make sense of- parts are left out, the sequence is not complete and the sentences a bit complex, so I end up just making up simple phrases about the goose and fox. The pictures don't really show what's going on in the story, either. Really, all this book has going for it is the sliding pictures which intrigue the baby.
