Book Review of Playbook Farm by Corina Fletcher and Britta Teckentrup

I got this book for my daughter and she loves it.
It has a multiple purpose. First, it is a book. And the book can be read like that. There is the story of different animals and different parts of the farm, and what happens at each place in the farm. But then, like a board game playing surface, the whole book folds out into a farm toy that can be played with on the floor, or in our case, on the table top. Certain animals and equipment are detachable, allowing our child to use her imagination to go from place to place on the farm playing and learning about the animals.
As she plays, she has fun. She also becomes more eager to visit the petting zoo nearby and check things out. This series of books is excellent, and I would recommend them highly to anyone who is considering getting them for their own kid.
