My review: I think this book is absolutely suitable for my 8 months daughter cause it has touch and feel features.My daughter loves to play with the horses' hair and the sound that comes with the book will make my reading becomes interesting even though now she doesn't react much to that sound. But we'll see later since this book is recommended for 18 months and above.However for graphic my daughter sure loves it since she keep looking at it. And again I'm sorry for poor quality pictures that I've taken with phone camera. Hope your child enjoy this book!

Play-a-Sound: Dora the Explorer, It s Riddle Time!, an interactive touch-and-feel sound book, invites preschoolers to join Nickelodeon s Dora the Explorer and Boots in a riddle contest at Tallest Mountain. Preschoolers enjoy feeling different textures on each page and pressing buttons to hear silly sounds as they enjoy this adventure.

Illustrated icons in the text match five big, bright buttons on the panel at the side of the book. As readers and pre-readers follow the story, they can find the matching buttons and press them to hear animals, knock-knock sounds, and celebratory music. Each page features a different texture for curious fingers to feel and explore. A silly riddle or knock-knock joke on every page will keep preschoolers laughing.

Each button plays a silly sound:

  • Elephants trumpeting
  • Horses whinnying
  • Cows mooing
  • Classic knock-knock joke knocking

Touch and feel! Children explore a different texture on each page:

  • A satiny smooth banner and flags
  • A leathery baby elephant
  • A horse s silky mane
  • A cow s soft hide
  • Two shiny blue ribbons

Preschoolers laugh along with Dora the Explorer as they listen to the clues and try to guess the answers to the silly riddles.
