Felt, flaps and mirrors: Books for babies and toddlers

At Pickled Pepper Books we have a range of interactive books aimed at babies and toddlers. With peep-through pages, bright pictures, different textures and mirrors, these books are perfect for establishing a love of reading from an early age. 


The Felt Flaps series by Ingela P. Arrhenius

We absolutely love the playful and imaginative designs of the Felt Flaps series published by Nosy Crow. Each title in this stylish series has five spreads with friendly characters to find behind colourful felt flaps. In addition to an array of animals, little ones can look out for pirates, fire engines and even the Queen. 










The final flap features a surprise mirror which is a fabulous hit with babies and toddlers. Parents adore these books because they are beautiful but tough enough to withstand even the most enthusiastic of young readers. And children love them because they are just so much fun. Ingela Arrhenius’ illustrations are a real bonus. They are bright and retro and perfect for capturing the attention of early readers. 


How it Works series by Molly Littleboy and David Semple

The How it Works series published by Little Tiger are a wonderful collection of chunky board books specially designed for little hands. Featuring peep-through pages and fun facts, these interactive books are perfect for introducing curious readers to sharks, diggers, dinosaurs, rockets and more. 



That's not my... series by Fiona Watt and Rachel Wells

The much-loved That's not my... series published by Usborne are specially designed to develop sensory and language awareness in babies. These delightful board books include bold illustrations and patches of different textures to stroke which are ideal for babies and toddlers to interact with.
