“I see a lot of lift-the-flap books in a given year and it can be difficult to figure out whether they’re for older or younger board book enthusiasts. I think I chose correctly with these two, but look them over carefully yourself to see if you agree.”—Elizabeth Bird

Through The Looking Glass Children's Book Review - Riddle Diddle Farm,
May 2019

“Little children love puzzles of all kinds. They like being presented with clues, which they can then use to figure out what, or who, something is. In this clever little board book the authors present children with a riddle to solve. The solution to every riddle is the name of a farm animal, the identity of which is hidden under a flap. On the first spread the text on one page tells us, using rhyming verse, that our mystery animal is ‘the morning alarm / heard out on the farm.’ Apparently this animal will ‘strut’ out of its enclosure if the gate is not kept closed. In the artwork on the facing page we see little pieces of the animal and when we lift the flap we see that it is a rooster. In all, little children have to guess the identities of five farm animals in this book. The riddles are funny, the clues are helpful, and of course, the lift-the-flaps are a delight.”—Marya Jansen-Gruber
