My son Daniel and I love this little board book. It is just the right size and robust enough for him to be involved in holding and turning the pages. There are also small board flaps which assist the unfolding story.
The illustrations have a gorgeous warmth and the colouring of the book has a creamy ochre tone and earthy colours which capture the woodland feel of the story.
The story is of a little bear in bright red waist coat, writing letters to his friends and delivering them each at their different homes around the wood. There is a sense of anticipation until all the letters are delivered and then, delightfully, one of the flaps becomes that of an envelope which you open to invite you and bear's friends to come to his party. Bear gets ready for the party baking a cake and finally welcomes all his firends at the door at the end of the book.
I love the simple text which introduces simple counting . Also the delivery of invitations to a party which children love. The book is just the right length for reading and rereading to a young baby and, I would imagine, as childs early reading book.
We love it and are off to order some more from the series.

We found this tale of Fox and his search for his clothes lovely and useful. The story is fun. The length of the story and content seems just the right appeal for toddlers (I have a 18m old ) to get interested in learning clothes & then 'getting dressed' too. The lengh of the book seems good for us so that it stays interesting (and usually we like to read it again!). We love 'lift the flap' books too & 'finding the clothes' in this one is fun.

My 20 month old daughter loves this book. She enjoys the main story and also takes great delight in pointing out the numerous interesting items contained within the pictures. The ducks are her favourite so it's fortunate there's plenty of them!
On the downside, my wife and I are beginning to get a bit bored after several hundred readings!

Fox's socks is an existential exploration of life, where our protagonist searches for his socks, a metaphor for our ceaseless search for life's deeper meaning in an apparently meaningless and absurd world. During his search Fox discovers many other aspects of life (depicted as clothing in the book) and remains unhappy even though these provide him with greater comfort than socks alone. His nameless rodent companion finds positivity and joy throughout the search, regardless of the potential futility of the search. This is a fitting introduction to the theories of Jean Paul Sartre, Kierkegaard and Nietzsche.

However my 18 month old stubbornly refuses to acknowledge the lesson and instead focuses on happily lifting the sturdily constructed flaps within this well illustrated book.

My daughter adores this book. I know it off by heart and she delights in showing me every time we read this where her head is when we get to find fox's hat!

I bought this for my granddaughter when she was about 18 months old, together with Tales from Acorn Wood. She has just turned 4 and this is still one of her favourite "quickie" books when she's been really good and is given the treat of an extra story at bedtime. She has a twin brother, so we already read two different books and the "quickies" have to be short stories and this fits the bill nicely. However, now she can count, she disagrees with the fact that the fox has 2 socks (this is what he's looking for), because there are socks on other pages too!!!!!!!!!!! Granddaughter has to go back through the book every single time we read it to count and point out the other socks! We just grin and bear it now!

It's an excellent book and the fact that it still engages her (and her brother) now they are a little older is testament to this. Her brother prefers stories with lots of action (and preferably gore, blood and dragons), but he's quite happy to sit and listen to this time and time again.

This book will got in the "memory box" when they eventually outgrow it as it's a book we've read and enjoyed on many occasions.

Beautifully illustrated by Axel Scheffler. On a personal note, I always feel that the books illustrated by him have a lot more detail to them.

The Granddaughter really loves Julia Donaldson books and has most of her titles.

Our son (14 months) loves this range of books and has done since he was 6 months old. The illustrations, rhymes and flaps all engage him and they are amongst my favourite books to read to him. These should be in every child's book collection.

I bought this for a friends child's birthday. Suffice to say ill need to buy another as me and my son love it so we are keeping it. (just as well it is so cheap! Another reason to give it a go) Gorgeous illustrations, great rhyme and entertainment through the lift the flap! By the creators of the gruffalo, I have to admit I'm not a fan of the franchise but love the acorn wood series.
