GALLOP! - Rufus Butler Seder

Yes, I am doing a review of a board book! I know this is rather unusual, most board books aren't worth recommending to others, but this one is unique. Using a technique called 'scanimation' the animals in the illustrations appear to move. How fast they move is dependent on how fast you turn the page. The text is simple but fun, perfect for young children and adults alike. Unfortunately, due to the nature of its construction this book will probably not survive a lot of checkouts, so grab it now and enjoy the page-turning excitement of GALLOP!

This is a fascinating book! Many who see it for the first time can't believe it's not battery operated. Children will love seeing animals in motion through this interesting and unique book.
