      This is a very busy book, lots of visual and touchy feely bits to talk through with your child

      I recently loaned My Busy Patterns book from our local library to give my son some variation on his books at home. He appears to get a lot of enjoyment from touchy feely textured books and so I thought that this would be ideal.

      The front cover is black and white chequered with a cut out space, half in blue, half in pink. In the middle is a 'rocking' butterfly, with a finger hole which allows a child to rock the butterfly to change the colour of its wings to blue or pink, or both.

      The second double page is a mixture of green and red blocks of colour and black and white stripes, a pop up rocking zebra and some corrugated card. The zebra has a finger hole which allows a child to pop the animal up from its hiding place.

      The next double page features a patch of pink felt and zigzag shapes, with a dial to spin, which flashes a pink and blue zig zag hat.

      The fourth double page features a spotty leopard which a child can pull across the page with the cut out finger hole. There are also shiny gold spots, which my son homes in on, he is such a magpie and goes for anything shiny!!

      The final double page features a chequered truck and blue chequered patterns. The truck pull out off the back page to reveal to further hidden vehicles.

      I have found this book to be of use in helping my son develop his hand-eye co-ordination skills. It is fun for us both to share this book together. The colours are bright and contrasting and the tabs and dials are chunky and sturdy.

      It's a great development aid
