‘Follow the Trail series,’ from DK.

The next two books are from a new interactive book series aimed at toddlers and pre-schoolers.

Both books have lots of fun interactive elements to physically engage young readers.

There are plenty of glittery, bumpy trails for fingers to follow, encouraging the development of the fine motor skills needed for pre-writing. My three year old enjoyed tracing these again and again, following the twists and swirls.

They are also brilliant for teaching children about shapes and colours, matching and sorting.

The text is bold and clear making it easy to read and teaching children lots of excellent scientific and mathematical vocabulary at the same time.

I think these books are a great introduction to non-fiction for young book enthusiasts, with the hands-on elements making them something children will want to return to over and over again.
