Beautiful! We really enjoyed this book! Simple text and pictures accompanied by large lift the flaps making this a great book to share with toddlers. It has instantly become my daughters favourite book! Julia and Rebecca worked together on 'the paper dolls' and they complement each other beautifully. A really lovely book, we'd definitely recommend it

This is a nice book with big flaps that my daughter likes to open. However, I think it will be better when she’s a bit older and can do some of the actions to go with the song.

I had thought that my just-turned-three year-old would possibly be a bit past this book but she loved it. She absolutely loves a lift-the-flap book and this simple, rhyming book. She has started to sit and 'read' books by herself and those with few words means she finds it easier to remember the story to say it aloud. Julia Donaldson always writes such sweet words - another great one for the youngest kids.
