Interactive

We would like books with artistic fun elements to them as well.
We would like books that are easy to read with very simple sentences.
Books with pop-up elements, scratch and sniff, and other exciting elements.

Reading Level

Books shouldn't be so word heavy but should include pictures in the story.
Books with simple easy to read sentences.
