This is a lovely board book about Cuddly the Cow who searches the farmyard looking for a place to sleep.  The sound is really great and sounds just like a cow with some lovely birdsong mixed in.  The story rhymes throughout and Axel Scheffler's illustrations are as pleasing and familiar as ever.  The print is nice and clear and it's a great book for my 5 year old to read independently.

Cuddly Cow wants to go to sleep but everywhere in the farm is too noisy - lovely illustrations and text that rhymes and flows with ease. It's probably more suited to an 18mth-2.5yr old as a "read to me" book... as its not long enough for a 3yr old "bedtime story".... however there's not too much text per page, the font used is very clear, and the prose is "pleasing"... so I think it will be a good one for her to read herself eventually. So I'm giving it 5 stars as I think it brings something to the table for two different age ranges. And being an Axel Scheffler book, there will be a feeling of accomplishment once she can read it that she's on her way to being able to read "proper books" like his longer ones (Gruffalo, Pip and Posy etc.)

My girls really enjoyed this book, my 4 year old is a big lover of books illustrated by Axel Scheffler his drawings are instantly recognisable and much loved. My 1 year old really enjoyed the sound button with plays the sounds of all the farm animals all at once. As a parent i must admit it does get a little annoying after a while. A lovely simple story where the cow goes around the farm meeting all the animals, would recommend for babies and toddlers.

The familiarity of Axel Scheffler's illustrations was an immediate attention grabber when I presented this book to my children. The eldest was excited to read the story and the youngest loved the noise button and it's realistic sounds. 
The story is full of rhythm, rhyme and repetition which again makes it a book my children will want to read over and over again. 
Fantastic!

What a lovely book. This chunky board book is great for little fingers and the the rhyming story is very sweet. We liked pressing the 'moo' button as little cow tried to find the perfect place to sleep :)

This is a fantastic sound book! My 3 year old absolutely loved the cow and bird sound which came from the button. It is longer than a quick 'moo' and adds to what is already a lovely book. We're big fans of Axel Scheffler and his drawings and this book showed off his familiar style of drawing. The book itself has lovely rhyming and sing song style words which makes it easy to remember and fun to read again and again. The story follows Cuddly Cow who is trying to find somewhere to sleep. She goes around the farm visiting all her animals friends in search of the perfect spot for a snooze but where will she end up? A great read for little ones.

This is a really lovely book for younger children. Axel Scheffler has a wonderful writing style that is easy to read. My daughter loved getting involved with pushing the sound button and hearing the cow and birdsong together. It's perfect for a beginner book for little ones. The illustrations and characters are likeable and held my daughters attention.

Lovely book. I love the illustrations.  Definitely enjoyable to read.  My 17 month old was immediately drawn to it and loved pressing the sound button.  She wasn't so interested in listening to the whole story but i'm sure she will once she gets a bit older and can sit still for 5 months! Overall a great book

Great little noisy board book for babies and toddlers. Fantastic illustrations add to the story with brilliant sounds so the child can join in the story time. Brilliant book to introduce farmyard sounds

We received this book in a Toppsta giveaway and it was a big hit with my toddler (almost two). He enjoyed pushing the button to hear the cow noise, and spotting the other animals on each page

I read it myself (an adult) , to Alan aged 4 aged 4 & to Lenny aged 2 aged 2

Thank you so much for this giveaway. Lenny loves it especially the noisy button! 
It's a lovely short story for little ones about cuddly cow who's would like a nap but everywhere is noisy!  The interactive button adds this to the story. 
The rhyming and illustrations are lovely and overall this is a nice fun read. 
I'm just hoping the noisy button gets quieter with wear and tear!

Great chunky board book with a lovely story about Cuddly Cow trying to find a place to sleep. Both my 8 month old and 3 year old liked it- pressing the sound button and finding all the animals. It's a good book for them to read independently too when they're older. My only criticism is that the noise of the cow does go on a little longer than expected but if you press the button again it soon stops.
