Introducing Bing classic picture books to younger readers in this attractive board book edition, perfect for sharing on Father's Day - and throughout the year!
Ted Dewan has created a series that focuses on the dynamic between toddler and parent, and that speaks to them both equally, about life as a toddler and life with a toddler. With short, repetitive texts, bold, bright artwork and appealing characters, Bing offers both parent and child an enjoyable reading experience and a simple, reassuring guiding principle - that, whatever happens, it's just a Bing thing, a normal occurrence, and nothing to get upset about.
Bing is making something for Daddy. He loves his daddy as much as he loves making shiny, feathery, sparkly things. But Bing will have to be very careful with that big bottle of goo...

What a great book! My one year old immediately took a liking to this book - I guess it reminded her of the Bing TV show which she has watched a few times.  She loves flicking through the pages, seeing all the bright colours.  There is one particular page that is very eye catching - the 'Sparkles' page.  Great quality book - thick card, which hopefully won't be chewed and destroyed like some other books we have! Would highly recommend this book

As soon as I saw this book I knew my two little Bing fans would love it and they did. It's a lovely little story the perfect length to keep little ones interested and the bright pictures keep them engaged. Being a board book my one year old is able to handle it and turn the pages herself without fear of ripping and it's able to withstand being thrown around and carried without damage. This is now frequently chosen at bedtime by both my 3 year old and a year old. Perfect for little Bing fans.

My little girl is 2 and adores Bing bunny so I knew this book would be a bit hit with her and I wasn't wrong! Featuring lots of the main characters from the Bing TV show she loved pointing them out in the book. The book itself consists of thick cardboard pages which I love as they are easy for my 2 year old to turn and almost impossible to rip/tear! The pages are full of colour with the pictures and writing being nice and bold making them easy to identify and read. 
Over all this is a fantastic book and is a must have for any little Bing fans out there!

A good short book for bedtime, engaging story that captures the imagination of any Bing bunny fan. This book is the perfect length for bedtime with a 3 year old who gets bored easily with longer stories.

This book has become my daughter's instant fav! I think she was initially attracted to it as she recognised Bing from CBeebies but she has moved on to loving the bold pictures and text. The book is aboard book meaning she can handle it throughout. The story line has repetition meaning she attempts to join in. A lovely book and one I'd definitely recommend for younger children
