Flanimals by Ricky Gervais

Gervais, Ricky Flanimals. Candlewick Press, 2009,  $19.99. POP-UP. Content: PG (there is one weird humanoid creature that I just don’t get).  

Defines what Flanimals are in great detail. Reminiscent of a non-fiction book although flanimals are fictional creatures. This pop-up book is very interactive and even has some pull tabs to animate the creatures. This would be a good book to teach comprehension strategies. The abstract words follow a pattern that lend nicely to the concept of comprehending text.
