The book comes in a beautiful box. When you open it, you find not only the book, but a set of high quality cardboard figures to punch out and put together. The book then become an interactive wildlife habitat. Obviously CJ is too little to put them together himself, so I did that part for him. Next we read the book and finally, CJ got down on the floor and played with all of the animals. The animals are absolutely adorable. There are two of most of them, so we played Noah's ark. It looks like they are all hand-painted. The cardboard is extremely well-made. A two year old has to try really hard to destroy these! The animals come from all over the world. There are penguins from the arctic, lions and zebras from the jungle, and bears from the forest. There are also birds of every kind, as well as bugs.
The kit comes from a company called Compendium, Inc. Their motto is "Play. Learn. Grow. You have friends to meet wherever you go." So cute. They have so many other cute kits, like the Boogie Monster Dance Kit, which comes with an adorable set of plush monster feet to help your kiddo boogie. They also carry wedding, Valentine's, and gifts for any other occasion.
I highly recommend this kit for your little ones. In addition to being fun to play, the book has become one of CJ's favorite bedtime stories. He loves the little boy and girl who are the characters interacting with all the animals in the book. The Care For Our World kit is available at Compendium Incfor $34.95.
