Letters, numbers, shapes and more! Join Jay and friends in this interactive picture book that inspires curiosity, imagination and play.

Jay the bear, Nora the rabbit and Clementine the bird invite little readers to have fun seeking treasure, spotting differences and matching pairs. With unique prompts and questions on each page, young readers can engage in their own way with activities, such as inventing names for their favorite monsters, choosing what to pack in a suitcase or imagining combinations of magic potions. Part picture book, part multi-use activity book, the delightful and interactive artwork in Play With Jay! will spark inquiry, discussion and creativity in readers.
