I read it to Soopa aged 1 aged 1

5 stars
This selection of Janet and Alan Ahlberg stories cover very basic baby activities like playtime, bathtime, bedtime, family.  I like very much that the characters are portrayed in a gender neutral way - so the dad is changing a nappy etc. It's surprising how many books still play to gender stereotypes. My daughter has loved this book from a very early age and loves to recognise the everyday activities.
