Product Description

About the Author

Eric Hill was born in London in 1927. He left school at 15 to work in a shipping office in the city. At 16 he joined an art studio as a messanger where he was encouraged to draw cartoons in his spare time. In 1976 Eric's son Christopher was born and when he was 2 years old Eric made up a story about a small puppy to read to him at bedtime. In 1980 'Where's Spot?' was published and the rest is history.

Format: Board book
We were given this book for our 11 month old daughter and she loved it as soon as she saw it. She constantly reaches for it and being musical is one of the few books she will actually happily look at by herself and do the various hand actions which accompany many of the rhymes such as "Incey Wincey Spider". Can be very entertaining to just watch her looking at it. However it is a great book for both of you to use together.

It contains a page for each popular children's nursery rhyme with an easy to recognise symbol at the top to indicate which part to press on the plastic musical edge to hear the matching music. What is good about this is that there is no annoying singing to listen to over and over again just the music. Excellent for co-ordination of the child, simple and bright illustrations and not under estimating familiarisation for the adult of the lines of nursery rhymes long forgotten since childhood.

A great book for dipping into at any time.

This is a brilliant book. Has nursery rhymes that are familiar to mom. The words are on the page while the sound buttons provide the music. Mom and baby will enjoy singing along to this one. Buttons are easy to press. My son (14 months) is able to activate the sounds himself. He brings his book to me and says 'Ba-Ba'. He wants me to sing for him 'Ba-Ba Black sheep'. I love the fact that the book has the song 'Polly put the kettle on' because this is one of the familiar ones from his favourite television programme, Barney & friends. Children will love the bright colours of the book. The hard board pages make it a great buy since little hands won't be tearing pages off.

I bought Spot's Big Nursery Song Book when my eldest grandchild was one year old. I now have five grandchildren and they all just love this wonderful book which contains all granny's favourite songs. The children have discovered how to press the buttons and compare the pictures on the buttons to the song pages. After five years of very frequent use, I would love to buy another copy - although it is still in good repair and we have changed the battery twice! I'd also love to be able to give this book to other families. Spot's Big Nursery Song Book (Spot Sound Books) Can't the publishing company reissue please?

The main drawback to Spot's Big Nursery Song Book is that it is too big. My toddler dropped this heavy and unwieldy tome on my big toe and I was in such excruciating pain I thought I'd broken it. The book is far too hefty for my two and a half year old to manage on her own, which is a shame, because she likes the songs. I was pleased to see the choices included 'I had a little nut tree', an old favourite that doesn't crop up in other song compilations. Another small complaint is that the tune to 'Incy Wincy Spider' goes wrong in the middle. Buy this for older toddlers and budding weight lifters.
