My daughter and I first discovered this book at our local library when she was 1. She loved the language and style of it - especially when read with my best Caribbean accent! It soon became a firm favourite and whenever we'd spot it she would have to take it out again until I got sick of being ordered to find it every other week and bought it on Amazon. Lovely illustrations and just a great book which I think we'll remember forever.
Absolutely love this book! I found this a number of years ago at my local library & ordered it not long after. As a preschool teacher I found many of the children I read it to really enjoyed it, but not as much as I enjoyed reading it!
I really like this book, it is funny, uses rhymes which gives a great flow when reading. For people who want a bit of culture for their child I would definitely recommend this book. It is very important for black children to see these types of images which are a reflection of themselves, it really can help them to be more secure in the future about their own identity. Top book :)
I bought this book for 2 children last Christmas, and they still say thank you every time I speak to them. It's a fun read both for the child, and the adult reading with them. The granny of one of the little ones loves it as it gives her a chance to talk about back home.
