Amazon.com Review

Count to 10, explore the alphabet, discover shapes, learn about opposites, and find the missing teddy bear in this big, colorful board book. Sesame Street's beloved Elmo guides young readers to lift more than 60 flaps to reveal humorous and edifying surprises. Over the word "dry," Grover gazes unsuspectingly into a garden hose. Turn the flap and guess what happens! Grover learns all about "wet." A towering pyramid of alphabet blocks contains objects starting with the same letter behind each flap: alligator, book, cookies. Large, sturdy flaps allow rough-tough toddler hands to clutch and pull as much as they want with minimal risk of tearing. Children will adore the bright, bold illustrations of Jim Henson's familiar Muppet characters and beg to return to this book again and again. (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter

From the Inside Flap

Illustrated in full color. Turn playtime into learning time with lovable Sesame Street Muppet Elmo and the biggest flap book ever! Toddlers can lift alphabet blocks to find a word beginning with each letter, open doors and windows on Sesame Street to count objects from one to ten, lift flaps that reveal opposites, and help Elmo find his teddy! More than 60 sturdy flaps--10 to 26 per spread--are part of the page, not glued on, and are made to stand up to the repeated wear and tear kids are sure to inflict with lots of lifting, looking, seeking, finding, and fun!

Format: Board book
Trust the 5 star rating this book has received by everyone! I have spent hours researching infant-toddler books in an attempt to foster my 16 mo. old's love of books. After spending major $$ and countless hours shopping for books, I have to say: This is absolutely one of the best interactive books we've ordered. It covers the concepts of numbers, letters, shapes, and opposites. The last page asks the reader to help Elmo search for a missing bear in his playroom. Children can look inside the piano, under an easel, etc. etc. to find it. Though some reviewers have noted that their young babies adore this book, I think it's more appropriate for the over 1 year old crowd. For one thing, it is super large board book. Young babies can't carry or manuever through the pages or flaps well. Secondly, while it's great to provide a numbers/letters introduction to babies, they will have a hard time focusing on the pages (they're very busy) and won't get much out of this book. In fact, while some younger infants (if they can open the flaps) will delight in looking under the number 10 to see the 10 bugs or lifting cookie monster's "full" bucket to see it "empty", they can't quite grasp these concepts yet. So, over all, this is a must-have to own for your 1 year-old and up. You can even purchase it early and then pull it out of the closet periodically to see if your kiddo is ready. Hope this helps. I'm off to search for more books by Anna Ross/Joe Mathieu.

My son received this book on his 2nd birthday and absolutely loves it to this very day (he is currently 3 1/2 yrs. old). It has helped him learn his numbers, colors, opposites and shapes in the most delightful way! The board pages have helped this book last this long with constant use. The lift-and-look flaps are intriguing to the readers and they really have FUN learning. I have purchased this book as gifts for birthdays and Christmas...it's a sure winner for toddlers and preschoolers

This book is one of my 17 month old daughters favorites. It is filled with lots of her Sesame Street favorites and is beautifully illustrated. The flaps in this book are big and sturdy and almost "tear proof" which I am sure will help to provide everyone in our family with many hours of fun.

This book is excellent. It covers all the bases--practice with numbers, letters, shapes, opposites and more while using everyday objects and favorite characters to "teach" them all. Plus, there's the fun of lifting the "flaps" to see what's behind many different objects--an activity of great interest to children. My son just loves this book (he's 18 months). He's a big fan of reading, and this certainly would be in his top 3 favorites. I just can't say enough about this book! (As a teacher, I have a great appreciation for how well this book is organized and what all it covers. Teaching and learning is a snap with materials like this!)

I purchased this book for my son who was not even 2 years old at the time and wow! This book was a huge success. It was a great way to introduce numbers, letters and opposites. My son could not get enough of it. He is nearly 3 years old now and still loves this book. It is a lot of fun to watch your child know what to expect from the pages and play along with the pictures. Although it is now extremely "used" and in need of replacement due to excessive use (my son may have loved it a little too much!), it is well worth the money of purchasing a new one. My daughter who is currently 6 months will now get her chance to experience Elmo the same way my son did.

I bought this book for my 15-month old son. I agree with all of the reviews listing this book as highly educational and fun for little ones...I mean, who can resist Elmo and the Sesame Street gang? My son even chuckled at Grover getting the hose dumped over him ("dry" versus "wet" when you lift the flap).

What disappointed me, however, was the flimsiness of the flaps. I don't know if the alphabet block flaps were supposed to be completely detached but about half of those flaps came off completely upon the first look-through of the book. Hence, those are scattered about the house somewhere, never to be found again, I'm sure. Maybe I got a lemon book? Additionally, my son had already torn several of the flaps on the last pages of the book (where you help find Elmo's teddy bear for him) completely off of the book. He wasn't that rough with the flaps, but the manufacturers of a flap book for the toddler set should reinforce the folding line!

My only beef with the content of the book is when trying to find Elmo's bear. Why didn't they hide it under a flap? My son, after a few readings of the book, wasn't interested in opening any of the flaps b/c he knew to run down to the corner of the page where the bear is sitting.

Recommended book, nonetheless, but you may want to tape all of the folding lines in anticipation of their destruction! =-)

We received this book before my baby was born. At first, he just loved looking at the pictures. Later, he learned to lift-and-look by himself. Then, I would ask him to find the shoes or the hot dogs to develop memory skills. Now, he's learning the alphabet when I say "Where is the 'E' for elephant?" Each night, we lift-and-look together and we talk about everything he sees.
