Campbell Busy Books Series

by ,
(47 reviews)

The world may be a busy, busy place, but this lovely novelty series full of tabs to push, pull and slide breaks it down for children to begin to understand how our world works. 

Each book has 10 lovely pages of big, bold and bright illustrations for children to peek through, along with tabs that little fingers can pull, slide or even push to reveal little surprises on every page. Each title also explores a new topic with rhyming text, from trains and fire stations to pets, festivities and nurseries, breaking the world in small digestible chunks so that children begin to understand it.

For more interactive series for babies and toddlers, do also take a look at the THAT'S NOT MYFelt FlapsFirst Baby Days and the Peekaboo series.
