Flapstick by Jon Agee is a play on words all the way through. This book was published in 1993, and my edition has heavy and sturdy pages, and each page has a lift the flap on it.
There are ten ridiculous rhymes with flaps, such as:
"The matador is rather tense,
He'll need a little luck.
For after all he's up against
A great and mighty . . ."
At this point, you lift the flap and see what the matador will be fighting. The word here is duck that rhymes with luck, and hopefully for the matador, this duck isn't like the cute little bunny rabbit on Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
This book is funny and fun to read.
Read to a child today even if that child is you.
Link to our NICU book registry if you'd like to donate books to babies in the newborn intensive care unit so their parents can read to them while they grow. You can also donate gently used books to our project by sending them to me or to Angie. Email me for a mailing address. We can use both English and Spanish books. If you have a graduate of the NICU, or if you have a baby whose life you would like to honor by donating books to this project, let me know, and I can make a book plate with their name for the books you donate.
