Age group: 2 to 5 year olds
Format: 14 page board book with lift the flaps
Doing some Christmas shopping recently and I came across this cheeky little Christmas book which we’re giving to our young nephew. Whose Bum? at Christmas was first published this August so it is quite a new Christmas book.
It’s a board book so not much of a story other than trying to predict who owns the bum sticking out from the flap!
My Christmas book review
My nine year old read Whose bum? to her brother and I last night, and we all laughed!
Sure the kids found it a little easy to guess whose bum it was on most pages, other than the names (I mean it is a bit hard to know which reindeer is which from their bum and they expected the snowman was actually Frosty).
I like that each bum is sticking out from something different, be it a fridge, a gift or a Christmas pudding! And the kids just kept giggling at the bums, of course!
The pages are thick and sturdy so can cope with little fingers turning and opening the flaps. However, the flaps themselves are obviously not as thick as a full board book so make a judgement on the child’s ability to treat books gently, or not!
