Another amazing book by Tullet! In this spiral bound book, each page is split in half until you reach the end of each section which is a full page picture. These pages are designed in such a way that you can change the tops and bottoms making different pictures depending on which pages you choose. In each section, the picture halves all go together in some sort of color scheme so it creates some amazing pictures and you can't go wrong no matter which top goes with which bottom.

I LOVE this wordless art book! It is a wonderful way to introduce art to the little ones and for them to see how things you might not think go together actually can make great art.

A warning is issued with this book that it may cause a choking hazard for ages 3 and under. Perhaps it is the wire spiral that is the concern. I think this book is appropriate for ALL young ages. So if you want to buy it for a 2-3 year old, I would recommend keeping it on a high shelf and bringing it down to read together with your child. I wouldn't leave it lying around anyway as it would quickly fall apart because of the spiral binding.
