This is a modern picture-book classic - there's never a dull moment with the Large family! One morning Mrs Large, needing some peace and quiet away from her boisterous children, decides to take refuge in the bathroom. She fills herself a foamy bubble-bath and takes in a tray of her favourite breakfast...but finds her peace is to be very short-lived! It is the winner of the Best Books for Babies Award. "The Large Family" series has sold nearly four million copies worldwide.

A fun book that takes me back to my own childhood! Mrs large is mum to three and in desperate need of a little break. But everything she tries is hijacked by her fun loving kids who just can’t do without their mum for even 5 minutes! Many of us can relate to poor Mrs Large!!!

Ah this story is something most parents can relate to - the difficulty of getting 5 minutes to yourself!

Mummy elephant is looking to get a little "me time" but her little elephants have plenty they need and want her for.

This is quite a cute little read, light hearted and funny and the illustrations are appealing to little ones.
