10 Amazing Flap Books by Walker Books plus Giveaway

Who doesn't love flap books?
Flap books have always been one of my favourite types of children's books and something that I have always introduced Lily to since she was a baby. She now has a really good collection of flap books and they are some of her favourite books.

There is something really exciting about flap books and I love the element of surprise about them. They are also a perfect way to get your child involved in interacting with the story. 


So here are 10 brilliant flap books all from Walker Picture Books


1. Caterpillar to Butterfly by Francis Barry £7.99

What an amazing flap book with a difference. This book goes along the story of a caterpillar turning into a butterfly and as it does you unfold a flap. Eventually as it is all unfolded, it has turned into a big flower shape with a beautiful butterfly in the middle. It is such a lovely book with the cutest illustrations and also a lovely rhyming storyline. The book is a hardback and is recommended for ages 2+. 



2. No Nancy No by Alice Tait £7.99

Have an adventure in London, all while lifting up the flaps and causing a little bit of mischief. Nancy is having a day out in London and seeing the sights. But she can't help but cause mischief. Each page has part of the story and then you lift the large flaps to see exactly what mischief she has got up to.
I do love how large the flaps are and its so exciting wondering what she could have possibly done to cause trouble. The illustrations are great and after spending lots of time in London I can say that they are drawn to perfect detail. you almost feel like you are in London! It's recommended for children aged 3+ and available in paperback or hardback. 



3. Are you My Mummy? By Mary Murphy £5.99

This is such a cute little flap book that is perfect as for a child's first flap book collection. A cute little puppy is running along looking for its mummy. It keeps meeting animals and asking "Are you my mummy" the animal replies with "No" and then you have to lift the flap to see who is the baby of that animal. Until the last page, where the Puppy asks "Are you my Mummy?" and the reply is "Yes, your my lovely puppy". This book is recommended for ages 0+ and is a hardboard book. 

4. Peepo Baby By Sebastien Braun £5.99

This is such a good book for babies because which babies don't love playing peepo. The babies are all hiding behind something and the writing asks "Who is hiding behind the?" Then you lift the flap and "Peepo!" There is the baby. It is super colourful and also a hardboard book. Perfect for babies and recommended for 0+.



5. Kiki and Bobo's Birthday Surprise By Yasmeen Ismail £7.99
6. Kiki and Bobo's Sunny Day By Yasmeen Ismail £7.99

Introducing the lovely characters of Kiki the Cat and Bobo the dog who are the best of friends. Both books involve a wonderful story about them spending time toggether and along the way you lift many flaps to find surprises and lovely illustrations to aid the story.
In the story Birthday Surprise. Kiki is planning a lovely surprise for Bobo's Birthday, she plans a party and cake, but in the end the actual surprise is that its actually her Birthday. The story has lots of flaps that are all relating to birthdays.
In the story Sunny Day, Kiki and Bobo both go to the beach and have lots of fun building sandcastles, collecting shells and swimming in the sea. Lots of the flaps are all beach related and its the perfect summer story.
I was really impressed with the amount of flaps in these stories. Sometimes you would open a flap and then there would be another flap underneath to open. I highly recommend these books. They are recommended for children aged 3+.



7. Who is the Biggest? by Petr Horacek £5.99

Although the title suggests that the books are all about things that are big and small, thats not the only thing included with this book. It's all about opposites and so we have things like slow and fast and noisy and quiet and short and tall. It will have one word with a picture of an animal on one page and then under the flap it will have the opposite with a picture of a different animal. As always the illustrations from Petr Horacek are brilliant and really make this book lovely. It is recommended for children aged 2+.

8. Who is sleeping? by Petr Horacek £5.99

Another lovely illustrated book by Horacek. This book asks who is sleeping and you lift the flap to find out who. The animals are all peeping out from the flap so this gives the children the opportunity to guess. This is another hardboard book so perfect for little hands and I think parents and children will both enjoy the pictures. Again this is recommended for children aged 2+. 



9. Surprising Birds by Elo £8.99

There isn't much words inside this book so it is more about the pictures. Each page shows an interesting looking bird. It is interesting because of its shape, pattern and colour. Each flap you lift, will have the word of the colour underneath and somewhere under the flap will be that colour. For example under one birds wing is a chick that is yellow. It is a lovely book to learn all about colours and children will love lifting the flaps to reveal which colour is underneath. This book is a hardboard book and recommended for children aged 3+.

10. Big Dog, Little Dog by Elo £8.99

This book is another book all about opposites and you lift the flaps to see the opposite. For example we have a short dog, and then you pull out the flap to make a long dog. The dogs are all really interesting colours and patterns which make the book really nice to read and will encourage your children to want to take a look inside. It is also a hardboard book and is recommended for children aged 3+.  



Lily and I have really enjoyed all of these books but I think her favourite have been the Kiki and Bobo Books. Lily is 3 and so all the above books are appropriate for her age but the books aged 0+ she has also really enjoyed reading independently. 

From a mums perspective, I really love the No Nancy No Book because of all the lovely illustrations of London. 

This is such a lovely selection of flap books and I hope that you find one that you like. Head to the Walker Picture Books Website now to buy your favourites.

  55. I would pick the 2 Kiki and Bobo books as they sound interesting for my little granddaughter who is too old for baby books but not old enough for many story books. She loves animals and these sound as if there is enough of a story, but short enough for her attention span.
