Familiar characters from the Gruffalo used to encourage pretend-play - getting the reader to flutter like a butterfly.... growl like a gruffalo etc. Definitely the best book in the "My First Gruffalo" set. This series of books had ended up in our "too young" box which is set to head to the attic, but our daughter has rescued them and has been "reading" them to her baby/dolly.

We have the set of these first Gruffalo books and this is our favourite. It's a great introduction to The Gruffalo for my one year old who doesn't have the patience to listen to the full story yet. Each page has an animal action such as fluttering butterflies and we act each one out. My son loves the ending when we finally see the Gruffalo and he starts roaring.

This is our favourite of the "My First Gruffalo" set; it's easily the most fun and interactive.

Each page give instructions on how to imitate an animal (by an action or a noise) - such as "flutter like a butterfly" or "hoot like an owl". This is brilliant fun and the whole premise of the book; my toddlers love it! You hit a double-page summary of all the actions/ noises so far and run through them all one more time before you get to the final animal: the Gruffalo!

The pictures are bright and eye-catching; the first time we read it my little boy took it off me to look through all the pictures himself. It's lovely for a quick vocabulary or expressive language activity.

This is a fab book; I highly recommend giving it a try.

Oh my goodness - we love this book! We have a set of four 'My Frist Gruffalo' books which are all lovely but this is the most fun. Each page offers you the chance to act like an animal e.g. 'squeak like a mouse', 'slither like a snail'. My little girl and I love to join in with the words, sounds and actions. Short enough to keep her interest and with beautiful illustrations.

We had this book in a set of 4 and is a lovely set for babies and toddlers to learn actions and simple words with the traditional gruffly illustrations.

My daughter loves the Axel Scheffler illustrations and is starting to now recognise the gruffly characters. 

Lovely way of using familiar characters to introduce words to young toddlers.
