Book Nook

This book is both a book and a puppet.  You put your hand in the back, so you control Boris' mouth.  I first saw Calm Down, Boris! by Sam Lloyd, when I'd taken Kieran to a Stay & Play session at the local Children's Centre.  I thought it was so cute that I decided to get it for him for Christmas and went in search of it.  I'm glad I did, because he's loved this book.  For some of the pages, the child is asked to help Boris in some way, either by brushing his fur or feeding him his lunch; Boris responds by giving kisses.  Since he's fuzzy, it's quite tickly.  Kieran doesn't ask for this book quite as much now, but it was a favourite for quite a while.  I need to get it back out and see how Charlotte likes it.
