Gift Giving Guide with Chronicle Kids, Part 1

In 2017 I reviewed the interactive board book Masha and Her Sisters  by the ultra-creative Suzy Ultman. I love nesting dolls, and the superb design of Ultman's book worked perfectly with the theme. Since then, Chronicle Books has created an activity book and now a nesting puzzle featuring Masha and her friends. Read on for more Masha - and nesting dolls Ultman designed herself!

The Masha and Her Friends Nesting Puzzle will inspire hours of creative play from the moment it is opened. Like the board book, Masha and her five (smaller) friends have an array of items incorporated into the pattern of their dresses that reflect their interests, from baking to music and dancing to collecting. On the backside are animal friends. Flip Masha over and you find her bear and a jar of honey. Flip Natalya, the smallest friend, and you find a ladybug with paints. Each animal has a number that corresponds with the items for number recognition and counting practice. Once out of the box, you can flip it over and use it as a stand for Masha and her friends.
