Description

Product Description

There''s a lot of building going on in Playtown, a Lift-the-Flap book from bestselling children''s book author Roger Priddy!

There is so much to explore, learn, and discover inside this busy, busy book - diggers are digging holes, materials are being delivered, and roads are being laid.

Children get their curiosity going with over 70 flaps to lift which reveal cross-sections of different scenes. Different jobs in construction are revealed as kids learn what each person, place, and piece of equipment contributes to a construction site!

On every page there are fun flaps to lift which tell children more about the picture above, and at the back of the book is a big page to fold out that reveals a bustling construction scene.

Review

“Priddy Books are ..."visually delightful with an interactive element." - School Library Journal

Another great book, but some issues were called out by a 4 year old. My daughter loves Playtown and Playtown Airport, so when I saw this book come out I jumped on the pre-order.
Well after our first read, my daughter said after opening the flaps "why are there words?" It turns out that some of the flaps are boring. In previous editions of the Playtown series, the text was on the backside of the flap and there was a colorful picture the supplement the text. Well in this book, when you lift a flap on some pages, you reveal boring text. On another dual page, there are illustrations dying for a flap, but the author only alternates the flap placement. The last page of the book is even more lazy with pages acting like one giant flap. Interesting yes, but left my daughter asking where are the flaps?

Lets be honest, lift-the-flap books are exciting for kids because there are FLAPS! Not only is this book smaller, there are less flaps to open than Priddy''s previous Playtown books.

I guess if this is your first Playtown book, I certainly applaud the great illustrations throughout the book, however Playtown and Playtown: Airport are way better in the eyes of its audience (my 4 year old)

I made the mistake of buying it before I read the other reviews. Like others have said this book is not nearly as good as the other playtown books. The flaps mostly have just words behind them and aren’t interesting for 2-3 year olds. Also, the scenes aren’t as interesting, less animals and less funny interactions going on. The other playtown books are really great and my son loves them, but I would avoid this one.

We have the bigger Playtown Book and thought this book would be just as cute. The Construction book was smaller, which isn''t an issue, and the pictures are just as cute. My issue with this book is the fact that once you lift the flap, there are no pictures underneath the flap, only words. In the Playtown Book (and many other flip books), there is writing on the other side of the flap and pictures underneath the flap. My children love discovering what pictures are underneath the flap. This book could''ve been better and we are disappointed.

Better for older kids...
Reviewed in the United States on November 17, 2017
Would be great for kids that can read to themselves. My 3 year old loves it, but it is very wordy and factual so it gets tedious to read over and over again as an adult! All the flaps have multiple sentences underneath and there are a lot of flaps!

The Playtown books have been a big hit with our girls and this was no exception. It''s pretty much what you expect, bright colors, clear clean art and lots of descriptions of construction vehicles and jobs. Like other books in the series it tries to be inclusive with more women drivers and construction works than you might expect and even a Sikh carpenter with a turban.

It''s not a whimsical as some of the other Playtown books (no snakes lurking behind the flaps) but is a big hit with our two girls.

We love all the Playtown books. The pictures and flaps are fun with lots of information for kids. They are well made and durable enough for frequent use by young kids.

Very disappointed in this book. Never had a lift the flap book that didn''t have pictures behind the flap! Two pages had only words behind the flaps. Two pages had pictures but the big fold out pages didn''t have anything! My two year old grandson wants to see pictures not words! Way too much money for a book with no pictures for the child to look at.
