“Fun interactive board book that children and adults can wear like masks, allowing for make-believe games and hilarious snapshot moments! With catchy rhymes, colorful illustrations, and interactive dialogue, everyone will enjoy this laugh-pout-load read-along.” [catalog]
New for 2015, Book-O-Beards allows young children to become a lumberjack—TIMBER!—a pirate—ARRRG!—a cowboy—YEEHAW!—a sailor—ANCHORS AWEIGH!—a police officer—You’re under ARREST!—or Santa—HO, HO, HO! The Book-O-Beards helps young children role-play different personas as they try these full-spread, fully bushy beards. Read the rhyming text, and then try one on..
“This orange beard
is softer than fur. I
In a deep voice
shout out, ‘TIMBER!’”
While the Book-O-Beards will appeal more to young boys, girls can certainly use this imaginative interactive board book. Made of heavy cardboard, the Book-O-Beards will stand-up to many hours of play. Young children love to play make-believe. The Wearable Books series lets kids try on teeth, hats, masks, and beards, all the while producing giggles. The love of reading can begin with one spark from these unusual dual-fun books.

This sounds like a great board book! 😀
I mustache you a question. Ha! How is it that we didn’t see you or one of your cats wearing one of the beards, Sue? Love this idea of wearable books. So fun!
This post needs a soundtrack. I give you The Beards! (And, yes, every single one of the band’s songs is beard-related.)
Where do you find all of your crazy/cool/unbelievable/huh? videos and pictures? You have something for everything, or so it seems. This video is beardtastic! 🙂
I just think the premise of this book is SO clever 🙂
Fun with books!
