Tails

by Matthew Van Fleet

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt | October 1, 2003 | Trade Paperback

Tails is rated 5 out of 5 by 9.
Tails are irresistible to toddlers, and in Matthew Van Fleet's sturdy touch-and-feel board book, preschool-age pokers and prodders can finally tug to their heart's content. Engaging, cartoonish animals from tigers to pangolins romp across the pages as the rhyming text bounces along: "Tails fluffy, / Tails stringy, / Scaled tails strong and-clingy!" Pull tabs, lift-able flaps, tufts of fur, and even a scratch-and-sniff skunk tail provide plenty of tactile surprises. Along the way, youngsters will learn about counting, opposites, and how animals use their tails. A tried and true tail-wagger!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very entertaining!! My LO, who is currently 14 months loves this book. It's very interactive with the different fabrics/textures for the many different tails of the animals. He just loves touching them and pulling the slides to make the tails wag/swat back and forth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An awesome book for little hands! My son is three now and has loved this book since before his first birthday. It's become my go-to purchase for new parents - and I hear nothing but great things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps baby entertained My 13 months old love this book. She likes to feel all the different textures and flip the page with excitement. It's a great book and I would get it for others as gifts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wrapping I love these books and bought them for my niece's new baby. I just wish I could have figured out how to have them wrapped as one gift. I saw how they could be wrapped individually but I wanted the 3 wrapped as one gift. The books are great and I really appreciate being able to ship them directly to my niece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creative I bought this as a birthday gift for a one year old and she picked it up and touched it right away. Each page has something touchable, moveable or even sniffable (stinky skunk tail), which she really enjoyed. She didn't smell the tail yet, but I know as she grows she'll think it's funny (a tiny scratch and sniff that smells like rotten eggs). There is a small counting exercise at the back too. A durable book; teacher approved!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Book We bought this book for our now 5 year old son a few months after he was born. It quickly became a favourite for him with all the interaction available. It is one of my husband and my favourites as well. He still pulls it off the shelf today and I recently gave this book to a good friend who is going to become a mother soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great This is one of my daughters favorites. It says for 2-4 year olds but my 10 month old can't get enough of this book. Great pictures for kids and parents alike.
