Fun at the Park
Lara Jones. Barron's Educational Series, $5.95 (8pp) ISBN 978-0-7641-5689-2
Lola and Binky: Fun on the Farm, by Lara Jones, also provides interactive fun for toddlers. Lola and her doll, Binky, visit a farm, where they meet the animals. Each spread has a touch-and-feel texture on a press-out piece that youngsters can then replace in the book's page, like a jigsaw piece. Children can touch a soft pig, wooly lamb, smooth cow or shiny metallic tractor. Other books in this series include Fun on the Beach; Fun at the Zoo; and Fun at the Park, all with text and illustrations by Jones.
