I don't know how well story time goes at your house, but at mine it is very hard to get my kids to sit still through a whole book without being promised something first. Which is why I love this next product.
The Care For Our World Activity Set not only includes a book to read to your children, but also includes punch out animals like the ones in the story, as well as an area to play with them on. It's very easy to keep your child's attention while reading to them because they can act out the story as you are reading it to them. I love how thick the pieces are, and out easily everything fits together.
My kids love to play with this set whether or not I am reading them the story. So not only so you get a good book to read for them, but you kids also get a great toy that they can play with. It comes with dozens of punch out animals, so your child will have a blast letting you know which is their favorite, and also learning about all of the different animals.
The book itself is really great. Your children will learn about all of the different animals, and other wild life while also learning about how to take care of them. Which is something I believe all kids should learn about. With this gift set they can learn about taking care of their world the easiest way possible, while having fun!
One thing I did not like about this set is that the punch outs were not numbered, and did not have any names on them. The piece the all the punch outs come out of has names next to each piece but unless you keep that piece and put all the cut outs back each time after you are done playing it would be very hard to keep track of which animal goes to which stand. Even a bigger box would solve that problem just because you would be able to just set them in the box instead of taking them apart. Either way I do still love this set, and all of its many pieces. I think that this is a great set for families like mine that have a hard time sitting down for story time.
