Little Tiger Press does an imprint for their younger readers called Caterpillar Books. These books are great for little ones to develop a love of reading and learn through play.
February saw the launch of two brand new titles in this category as part of the Little Snappers series. We were sent a copy each of these two lift-the-flap board books titled Cheep Cheep Pop-Up Fun and Snip Snap Pop-Up Fun to read and review.

The books are nice and chunky with a sturdy hard board cover and binding. What struck me was the use of vivid colours on the cover and throughout the books. The illustrations are big, bold and bright, and are guaranteed to captivate inquisitive little minds.
There are giant flaps and colourful pop-ups on every page to go with the rhyming narrative. Both J and I were impressed by the pop-ups. Cheep Cheep Pop-Up Fun has cute farmyard animals jumping out at you from under each flap. But if you are looking for a spot of thrilling adventure, then Snip-Snap Pop-Up Fun is the book for you. Behind each flap, you will find hiding a wild animal ready to roar and snap.
J is learning rhyming words at school at the moment, so this pair of books has come at just the right time for us to practice at home. He was happy to do phonics as well, tracing his little finger along the letters on the cover and sounding them off.
Cheep Cheep Pop-Up Fun and Snip Snap Pop-Up Fun are written by Jonathon Litton and illustrated by Kasia Nowowiejska, and should help start out little ones on their reading journeys.
