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.
On the downside, my wife and I are beginning to get a bit bored after several hundred readings!
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.
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.

My son adores the whole collection of "Acorn Wood" books including this one. He's quite rough, so the fact that it is a board book makes it far more robust. Read morePublished 13 days ago by L. Hughes

My 9 month old enjoys turning the pages and pulling at the flaps and trying to eat them. Perhaps she is a little young, but she does like this book so it was worth buying. Read morePublished 25 days ago by Cate
Not my favourite of the Tales From Acorn Wood series. I think this is by far the least interesting, there's hardly anything to this when you compare to Rabbits Nap, Foxs's Sock. Read morePublished 27 days ago by Elizabeth E
