2018 Christmas Gift Review & Giveaway - Flip Flap Dogs

My grandsons love dogs. While they are especially fans of huskies, they love any dog, so when I saw a new book with dogs in it from nosy crow/Candlewick Press, I knew it would be a hit.

Flip Flap Dogs
Author - Illustrator - Niki Dyson
Publisher - nosy crow/Candlewick Press
Ages - 3-7

Favorite Features -

  • Colorful dog illustrations - being able to flip and flap the dogs to make your own unique dog is fun . . . and funny, according to my five year old grandson.
  • Short description of each dog - interesting.
  • Encourages imagination and fun.
  • Sturdy board pages should hold up to the creating of new dogs.
nosy crow/Candlewick Press says; "Create more than one hundred hilarious dog combinations with this interactive book. What do you get when you cross a Labrador with a beagle? A Labradeagle, of course! What about a whippet with a Chihuahua? Why, that's a Whippihuahua! Featuring eleven different breeds to mix and match, this very silly, but absolutely engaging, doggy book is perfect for dog lovers."

This fun book is a story-book/information book and a fun game/puzzle book all in one. As children mix and match the dog tops and bottoms in Flip Flap Dogs, they will create their own fun dogs. 

I'm very happy to say not only did nosy crow/Candlewick Press send Flip Flap Dogs for me to review and share my own opinion of it with you, but they are making another available for me to give away (USA only). If you are over the age of 18 and would like to enter this drawing for Flip Flap Dogswhich will be on November 27, 2018, please comment below to share the dog breeds your grandchildren would like to see in a flip flap book - huskies, corgis, pits and basset hounds are what my grandsons would like to see..

  1. My daughter would like to see labs, dachshunds and golden retrievers.

  2. Thanks for your giveaways! We have a pointer, our neighbor has a husky, we dog sit for a collie, and my favorite dog is a King Charles Spaniel… So those are the ones we would like to see. I follow on Facebook, Google, and by email.

  3. I think a cairn terrier or beagle would be cute
