Silver Dolphin Interactive Books...Review & Giveaway!

As you well know by now, books are a true staple in my life.  Our house is full of books that we love and that are readily available to be flipped through when the mood strikes.  Before the kids were even born I got to work building their libraries and I am pretty sure I love children's books as much as actual children do!

Silver Dolphin has a wonderful collection of interactive books that are perfect for little ones.  I think that part of instilling a love of books from an early age is by making reading fun.  Interactive books are a wonderful tool in getting little ones engaged and interested in reading.  The combination of time with a loved grownup and a fun engaging experience can really create lasting, special memories surrounding books which, in turn, can help foster a lifelong love of reading.  Great books are a must! 

When I received this lovely stack of books form Silver Dolphin I was delighted.  My kiddos are a little older now but I have nephews in the 2-5 year range and these are wonderful for them.  Check out these great interactive titles from Silver Dolphin....


Push-Pull-Turn: Dump Truck Gets to Work!, Fire Truck to the Rescue!, and Up in the Air! ($15.99; Ages 4 and up) introduce young children to a construction site, emergency vehicles, and flying machines in each interactive, oversized book. Each title features a lively story with flaps to open and tabs to pull to engage busy kids on the go! Lift the loader’s bucket, pull the fire truck’s ladder, and make the stunt plane do loop-de-loops, all while learning the basic parts and functions of each vehicle. Includes interactive flaps, wheels, and tabs.

Our Thoughts:  These three books are outstanding.  I have never met a toddler or pre-schooler who doesn't love a story about trucks or rescue vehicles.  That topic coupled with page after page of fun ways to move your hands is a total win.  These books are now on  my "go to" gifting list for little ones.


Join Squirrel as he climbs higher and higher up a tree in his quest for one big surprise in Up, Up, Up in the Tree ($9.99; Ages 3 and up)! With flaps to lift and peek-through holes, there’s lots to spot, count, and discover along the way in this beautifully illustrated and fun storybook. Includes flaps to lift and peek-through holes for extra fun and learning.

Our Thoughts:  This book is super cute!  Each page has plenty of opportunity for peeking through and lifting flaps as little squirrel goes on his big adventure.  A bonus is the very last page which has a collection of many other critters hidden amongst the pages!




Follow the trail for an exciting adventure with a rocket ship, a train, a boat, and more things that go in Trace Race: Things That Go ($9.99; Ages 3 and up)! This storybook includes unique cutout paths for toddlers to follow with their fingers as they encounter vehicles in fun settings. With adorable illustrations and rhyming text, this on-the-go book is perfect for interactive story time.
Includes a die-cut path for finger tracing!

Our Thoughts:  Fun!  The vivid illustrations and charming characters are a real draw.  The cutout paths for following with little fingers is a really neat idea and the perfect way to keep little wanderers engaged!

Giveaway Alert!  Silver Dolphin Books is giving one lucky Reviewed by Mom follower a set of the Push Pull Turn Books!  Fire Truck to the Rescue, Up in the Air and Dump Truck Gets to Work!  Thanks so much to Silver Dolphin Books and good luck!
