Instructions for set up: 

  1. The individual pieces on each page need to be separated, so please take a few minutes to get the book set up before giving it to your child.  While this can be done by pulling them apart, scissors can speed up this process by snipping the small parts that connect pieces.
  2. As the felt is new and “pristine”, a few pieces may not stick at first. However, the more you use it, the easier the pieces stick. (Brushing the pages with a clean toothbrush or hairbrush will help the pieces to stick.)
  3. Besides being a fun coordination activity, the blue zipper on the back page doubles as a storage pocket for the pieces and allows for secure storage when the book is being carried around! 

Recommended for ages 3 and up.
