The unique TURN THE KEY package (with a working key and locks on every page) makes opening the doors every bit as fun as learning about farm animals.
This chunky book comes with an actual key that little ones about 9 months old and up can use to unlock doors to different buildings around the farm. Behind each door, they will discover adorable animals and other images of life on a farm.
Grasping and manipulating the attached key builds fine motor coordination, as children get a lively tour of a working farm--from a pig pen to a chicken coop to a big red barn, and more. Beautiful photos are accompanied by simple rhyming text. Kids enjoy unlocking the sturdy doors so much they will want to read this book again and again.
