These are our favorite Lift-the-Flap books for my one-year-old daughter. While this is obviously not a comprehensive list, these are books that we personally own and love to read everyday. They are sturdy board books, so they’re ideal for both babies and toddlers, even through the teething phase. Another perk of these books: they are all available on Amazon which is so convenient.
This was her first favorite Lift-the-Flap book. We liked to read it because even with limited hand control at 6 months old, she could open some of the flaps and was so proud of herself!
This is one of her current favorites at 18 months old. It is made of stiff paper, so it is less durable than her board books and has some rips in it, but we’re working on being gentle. She likes the bright colors and the way the animals pop up from behind the flap on each page.
Thomas & Friends
This is another book that we read everyday. It has several flaps on each page and sounds that correspond to the items behind the flaps. Lily likes to point out each item for me to name, and is starting to understand that some items have a corresponding sound.
This is one that I grew up with too! This is fun for my daughter because she loves dogs.
This book is by the author of Dear Zoo, but instead of a zoo sending animals, it’s Santa sending presents. It’s a fun Christmas-themed book that Lily enjoys almost as much as Dear Zoo (animals are more interesting than toys apparently).
