The new line of interactive finger puppet board books from Petit Collage is totally ‘hoot’ worthy. Unique die-cut layered pages and sweet, felt folk-art style finger puppets combine to create a memorable and interactive storytime for tots. All of the books are wonderful, but we especially love the In My Tree storybook featuring an adorable little owl in his cozy home.
Each picture puppet board book in the collection features bright and colorful collage images made by Petit Collage‘s founder Lorena Siminovich, accompanied by child-friendly text by Sara Gillingham. Published by Chronicle Books, these puppet board books offer four stories about animals in their home environments. In addition to ‘In My Tree’ the collection includes: In My Den, In My Nest, and In My Pond respectfully featuring a bear cub, a wee bird, and a fishy.
Petit Collage has always impressed us with their green design when it comes to children’s art — such as their beautiful My Favorite Things Poster made with 100% recycled paper and soy inks, and their Petit Collage Mobiles made with sustainable bamboo — and we wish that these books were printed on recycled content paper. However, if you’re feeling some book purchasing guilt, you can always make a donation to Eco-Libris, an organization which plants trees for the books you buy.
