Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic book My daughter loves to be read this book - we've had since she was 18months and she still loves it at almost 2 and a half. It has just enough words to read without being too long for the little ones attention span. The illustrations are fantastic with lots of opportunity for ‘I spy’ games too. This makes a great bedtime story.
