It is the element of surprise that makes lift-the-flap books so exciting for babies and toddlers. It is the interactive nature of these books that makes them so great for caregivers. This lift-the-flap has a question on every page. Each "Who?" will allow you to ask and answer a question with your child. At nine months, your child will not be answering the questions, but you will be helping him answer questions in the future and start to identify animals.

Each animal under a flap in this book has a cut-out section showing on the outside of the flap. This feature increases the level of surprise and curiosity by providing a hint of what will be revealed when the flap is lifted. You can wonder out loud what animal is behind the flap before you lift it. You and your child can trace the outline of the animal cut-out with your fingers. That touching will reinforce the shape and features of the animal and help your child make a link between the animal and its name. You can even name the animal's features, like ears, tail, and trunk, on the cut-out. This simple activity can help build your child's future language.
