A lovely wee book for your little ones!
on 16 January 2012
My daughters have never read any of these Douglas picture books before...this is their first. In this one, Douglas gets a new woolly hat from his Dad as a present. Overexcited like all children are when getting something new he immediately heads off to show his friends his new gift! The only problem is that in his excitement he ruins it and the wool runs loose and his hat becomes a ball of red thread! Douglas starts to worry about how he can put it back together and he also worries about what his Dad might say when he returns home to show the 'hat' now in one big lump. After some nail biting events trying to make things better his friends encourage Douglas to talk to his Dad and tell him the truth. Dad embraces Douglas and not only is all forgiven, Dad has something else in store for Douglas that puts a smile back on his face.
A great story to encourage your children not to worry and to teach them that accidents do happen. This story creates the perfect opportunity to tell your children that no matter what they do that as their mum or dad, you will always love them!
A beautifully illustrated picture book with a section of 'designer hats' at the back that has my 3 year old in stitches! Highly recommended!
