I have adored every book from Herve Tullet and this book is no different!

Using a puffy X as a character (as seen on the cover) Tullet teaches many many concepts. He teaches colors, big vs small, counting, perspective, up and down, color mixing, distinguishing shapes, spacial concepts, as well as art concepts.

Each page brought a smile to my face as I discovered another adventure of Blop. I love how Tullet uses something so simple as a puffy X to teach many concepts all in one book. And yet this simplicity is in no way boring. Even I could read this book over and over and enjoy it. There are exciting bits such as the mirror page and the color films that sit on top of the page to mix two colors together making a new color. There is also a page of punch out Blops that can be used with activities throughout the books. This book is very interactive. The text is very very simple.

A warning is issued with this book as a choking hazard for ages 3 and under. This is possibly due to the Blop punch outs at the end. This book could easy become torn up if left out with the little ones even though it is mostly a board book. As with all of Tullet's books, I would buy it for any age, but keep it on a high shelf and bring it down to enjoy together. You cannot possibly be disappointed with this book!

A myriad of variations on a simple shape that is easy for a child to recognize. An invitation to discover and explore everyday life and simple ideas.Known in France as 'The Prince of pre-school books', Tullet takes the concept of reading to a new level, teaching young minds to think imaginatively, independently and creatively.
