I can't remember when we first borrowed this from the library but after one reading my son was hooked. He's 4 1/2 now and still loves it, as does my daughter who is nearly 2.
If you can get hold of the board book version, then I would recommend it as it will be read many times!
Fantastic rhyming. Beautiful pictures. My husband can read this without the book, we have been asked to read it so many times and the rhyming is so easy!
The pictures look a bit like a boy or a girl, which means that both sexes can relate to the child pictured.
My son even learnt animal names from this book!
It's not got many pages so even fidgety children will probably be able to sit still long enough!
And the nicest thing is that all the animals in it are the childs toys that they take to bed, which helps to encourage their imagination.
Absolutely spot on. If you only buy one book for your baby or small child make it this one, you won't be disappointed.
