A foldout flap increases the fun in Only My Mom and Me by Alyssa Satin Capucilli, illus. by Tiphanie Beeke. Each spread begins with ""When it's only my mom and me..."" and the right-hand side folds out twice to reveal various activities. ""We take crunchy leaf walks"" shows a mother cat and kitten strolling past a pond in the woods; unfolding the flap reveals their ""long picnic talks"" on a plaid blue blanket, and a final unfolding shows the kitten swinging from a tree. Only My Dad and Me, from the same team, similarly explores a bunny child's experience with father.
