In Maisy's Big Flap Book, Maisy and her friends--Cyril, Tallulah, and Charley--are busy working in the garden, painting and playing in the playroom, and having fun at the park. Young children will eagerly join in, and with thirty-six flaps to lift, they will discover a dazzling world of numbers, colors, shapes, and opposites!

Age Group 15 months

What’s Happening at this Age

  • Showing you how much they love reading by carrying books around and handing books to you to read
  • Answering questions by pointing with one finger, like when you ask, “Where is the squirrel?”
  • Recognizing when a book is upside down
  • Beginning to show empathy, like looking sad when viewing a picture of another child crying

Your toddler is able to communicate a great deal with a small but growing vocabulary! Their ability to point at objects to gain your attention is a huge milestone that tells you they’re aware that you have a perspective that’s different from their own. This is called “shared attention” and it’s an important part of communicating and caring for others. Books about friends and family are very interesting to your toddler and talking together about what you’re reading will increase your child’s learning.
