I was very surprised at how small this book is, but it's perfect for little hands. The flaps are a bit tricky to get out, so I pick them out and have my daughter finish lifting them. The flaps flip in different directions. My daughter is 9 months and enjoys the books she has with only one flip flap, so I got this book for her. It's very simple, so you may need to be more playful to make it a fun time.
