This book captures baby's attention immediately. They love the cheerful baby faces and copying the actions of the babies in the book. My son laughs in anticipation of the finale. It is a perfect book for babies, just enough word content and in rhyme. I often find my son looking at this book on his own (it has been his favourite book since he was 10 months old). I have read this book to him hundreds of times and I still enjoy it myself.

helen oxenbury's tickle tickle has been a family favorite for years. my 12 year old daughter, 5 year old son, and current 1 year old son have worn out our current copy, so we need to order another. the illustrations are colorful, multicultural, and pleasing to the eye for children and adults alike. my husband and i have the entire book memorized from frequent readings. and all three of our children, at the age of 1, would "act" out the text of the book. we would definately recommend this to other families.

Like the other reviewers this is a firm favourite with my daughter. We've had it for the past year and its already worn out (perhaps because we have to read it 20 times a day!) She always giggles as we reach the end. Bright pictures and simple words makes it a winner. It'll be stuck in your head after about the 4th read though!

We got this book free as part of a scheme to encourage children to read more when my son was 8 months old and he has loved it from day one.

There are only four pages but each page gives you an opportunity to interact with your child and show him/her what is going on. My son loves the babies faces and we put on different voices with each page and on the second to last page he always looks up in delight knowing on the last page it is 'tickle tickle' time. :)

A lovely book to enjoy with your baby/toddler.

A friend recommended me this book, and I have to admit I was a bit underwhelmed when I first received it. But my twin one-year olds completely LOVE it. So much so, that one of the first words they have learnt to say is "tickle". They clearly identify with the babies in the pictures and try and immitate what they are doing. We wondered for a while why one of them kept grabbing her clothes when she reached for ths book, until we looked more carefully at the front cover! They now have a different action for each of the four pages - for example, on the "gently gently brush your hair" page, they both instantly put their hands to their heads and comb through their hair. The baby on the last page is lying down, which makes it a great bedtime book.

My little girl loves this book and wants me to read it to her again and again. The children's faces make her smile and laugh the whole way through. It's illustrated beautifully throughout. Probably like many parents, I know the lines by heart. I even relate it to things that we do, so it's part of the every day learning process.

I ordered this book as I'd read a raving review about it. Let's just say I was a bit disappointed when I read it the night before reading it to my 2.5 year old toddler.. I remember thinking 'Is this it??' I expected it to be a bit longer than 4 measly pages. HOWEVER, baby LOVED it and we read it over and over again at bedtime. She wants to know why the babies are playing in the mud, why they're having a bath, why the father is holding the soap, why the mother is brushing their hair, why etc etc etc.. She's learned the whole book off by heart (it is only 4 pages long) and insists that i 'tickle' her BOTH under the chin AND under the armpit.. just like in the book. I'm quite impressed that she can say 'squelch'-it seems like such a difficult word to say! Just goes to show that just because I don't like a book doesn't mean a toddler won't like it either! Bravo!

I highly recommend this book...We started reading this to my son at 4 months old and he loved it then and continues to love it. It has an easy rhyme so children can remember it, no matter what age. The pictures are wonderful, and the children drawn in the story are from all nations, Africa, Asia and Europe so an absolutely brilliant feature for children.
Buy this book for your children or someone else's children as it will be thoroughly enjoyed.
