You may think your parents just boss you around and tell you what to do. And there's no getting away from it - they do have to do quite a lot of that! But there's so much more to them - did you realise they are also tent poles for dens that are wonky, dustbins for bits you don't want to eat up and grandstands to make you grow tall?

What a lovely book! Beautiful illustrations as always by Sara Ogilvie and the sweetest rhyming words about what parents are to their children other than naggers and bossers; "Parents are targets for ketchup. And hoses. And hunters for toys that you left in the roses. Parents are towels for wiping your grime on. They're whirlers and twirlers and tree trunks to climb on." The book ends with "...TICKLES!" which the parent reader must of course do to their child as they will see in coming in the rhyme before they turn the page.

A great book about parents. Very funny and when I read at my baby and toddler  group all the mums and dads laughed! 

Lovely short rhyming sentences about the good and bad things about parents.

My boys and niece also enjoyed it! 

Great book to share.

Such a great read out loud story. Very cleverly written with great rhythm to the rhyme. Lots of themes that parents will relate to too. Be careful to not rely on it to get them to sleep as at the end the story requires a tickle!
