Make It Now: Animals

Make It Now: Animals. Geraldine Cosneau. 2018. HMH. 12 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence: Choose an animal page to decorate, and then pull that page out of the book. Press out the animal, the little plant, and each of their stands. Color the animal's outfit however you'd like.

Premise/plot: Make It Now: Animals is a novelty book for little ones. It comes with five animal paper dolls. Each animal needs the FRONT of their outfit colored. There are stickers to decorate the paper dolls with as well.

My thoughts: I like the idea of this one. As an adult, it bothers me that only half of each outfit needs coloring. The back of of the paper doll is already colored in. Children may or may not care about the front and back matching. But it would bother me now. I would be anxious about trying to match the colors as closely as possible. But if your little one likes paper dolls, coloring books, or sticker books this one may be a good fit for you.
