This board book for children between the ages of one and three features sliders to push and pull plus lots of colorful illustrations. Bizzy Bear is heading off on vacation. He hails a yellow taxi to get him to the train station but there's lots of traffic along the way.

He arrives just in time at the station to catch the red train. Pull the tab and you'll see the train leave the station and cross a bridge. Is that Bizzy Bear in the passenger car?

Next we find Bizzy Bear boarding an airplane. Find the ring under the runway and push it sideways to see the jet take off. Finally, our little bear has reached his vacation destination. See him having fun in a sailboat?

Although very young children will enjoy the illustrations, I think only older toddlers with decent coordination skills will be able to pull, turn, and slide the tabs that are featured on Bizzy Bear's journey. Of course, mom or dad can make the interactive elements of the book function and give the youngster the needed direction to make this an enjoyable experience.
