It's Christmas Eve - the perfect time to catch Santa! Chase him through 10 cosy Christmas scenes. This book includes nine liftable flaps and a pop-up surprise! The size of this book meant that it appealed to the younger members of our infant school. The children in Nursery enjoyed sharing this book on a one to one basis. The flaps are easy to open and generated much talk and laughter.
A key focus of the new EYFS framework is communication and the simple and effective pictures generated a great deal of this. The children enjoyed opening the windows to see if it really was Santa and particularly enjoyed opening and closing the pages at the end of the story to make Santa move. The repeated refrain at the top of each page meant that the children were able to read the book with me.
Can't Catch Santa! is a good book to share with younger children to help with their understanding of how to handle books and to promote the love of reading. Peek and Pop books are a great way to engage the younger members of our school community.
