Done, I have been trying on the main page link, but it takes me to a book give away for "murder" something, not the right book. Worked out another way to the link and it's worked. Phew, hope I was in time!

Hi there,

We're very sorry to hear you still haven't received your free copy of My Mummy Says. We will chase this up with the publishers and get back to you as soon as possible!

Came on to say I hadn't received the book either.

ILikeWarmHugs Tue 27-May-14 14:59:15

I am also waiting for a copy.

Received this morning - and I have to say what a delightful looking book. My 2.5 year old daughter loves it. The illustrations are fabulous and the text is simple/repetitive which will ensure it becomes a firm favourite in our household.

MamaMummyMum Fri 30-May-14 16:48:49

I received my book this afternoon. A wonderful board book. The illustrations are beautiful, simple yet eye catching with lovely pastel shades. The book itself is perfect not only for younger children but it is also great for reading together as a family. The repeating of "this mummy says" makes the words memorable allowing the child to join in with the reading. So pleased to have this as part of our book collection.

majjsu Mon 02-Jun-14 10:15:31

Thank you for the book, it is a lovely story with cute illustrations and repetitive words with fun rhymes. It engaged my LO from the start. She kept asking questions about the pictures. I would recommend this.

sallyc06 Mon 02-Jun-14 10:17:17

What a beautiful little book, from the rhyming story to the cute little illustrations. A big hit with my Alexander.

yummum120 Mon 02-Jun-14 12:32:34

hmm I still haven't got the book, was looking forward to this one very much, but I think (fingers crossed) my neighbour has it, as it seems I was out when they tried to deliver unfortunately, and now nobody is opening the door at my neighbours when I try to collect confused. Thank you Anyway. Will post a review as soon as I get the book.

MrsRedWhite214 Mon 02-Jun-14 20:15:00

I still haven't got mine yet either. I hope it arrives soon!

johura27 Mon 02-Jun-14 21:16:21

I won a copy of mummy says giveaway book but haven't received the book yet even though the competition was in may and not its june. where is my book? also I won tilly and friends books but haven't received that book either. so disappointed to not receive my books. sad

dinkystinky Mon 02-Jun-14 22:06:51

We just got the book on Saturday - its a lovely board book, with sweet (and different) illustrations. DS3 (who is nearly 11 months) enjoyed turning the pages - and turned back to look at some of his favourite pictures - and I liked it showed an older and younger child. DS2 (who is 5) liked it too.

Dolallytats Tue 03-Jun-14 07:39:06

Still no sign of it here sad

kimlo Tue 03-Jun-14 21:15:39

I got the book and realised it was to young for dd2, so I gave it to the 2 year olds at work.

They have really enjoyed listening to it, and the board book is strong enough to last lots of children looking at it repeatedly, sometimes board books aren't.

The pictures are lovely and the book flowed well when reading it.

ILikeWarmHugs Wed 04-Jun-14 16:58:31

I received my copy today. It is a delightful book, with rhyming sentences (my favourite!) and lovely illustrations. My daughter hasn't put it down since I gave it to her an hour ago. We read it together then she 'read' it to her teddies.

itsamummysworld Thu 05-Jun-14 14:30:14

My 2 youngest loved this book! the rhyming of the book is beautiful and the illustrations are lovely, it really makes it a joy to read.

MrsRedWhite214 Thu 05-Jun-14 17:37:45

This is nice sturdy board book which should last longer than the others my son has managed to pull apart. The rhyming story is lovely with sweet pictures alongside. The same story told from different viewpoints without being confusing. A lovely book!

Dolallytats Thu 05-Jun-14 19:39:25

Got it yesterday. Really lovely book, although my DD is too young for it-she's loving chewing it!! I think she'll love it when she's a little older.

yummum120 Fri 06-Jun-14 09:18:36

Thank you finally got my book. I think this is a lovely book for lots of different ages. Theres lots to explore and talk about in the book and It encourages children to become vocal and use their imaginations.

Liana83 Fri 06-Jun-14 21:50:56

A lovely book. My 3 year old and 7 year old enjoyed listening to it. I loved the illustrations and think this would make a lovely keepsake book or gift.

mjmooseface Sat 07-Jun-14 17:03:06

sallyc06 I have an Alexander too! :D

I agree with everything that has been said already. 'My Mummy Says' is a cute little book with lovely illustrations and a great rhyming story! My son, who rarely sits still, listened while I read and I've caught him quietly looking at the pictures by himself! A great book!

bakingtins Sun 08-Jun-14 11:23:25

Lovely illustrations. The book is a bit young for my DS, just turned 4, but the repetitive text did help with him 'reading' it himself. Probably more suitable for a 2 yr old, there is not much in the way of plot!

nerysw Mon 09-Jun-14 15:27:40

I read this with my kids and they like the illustrations and the rhymes. It's cute and the children both said 'that's like us' a lot as the mummy's say things we can all relate to (I forget umbrellas quite often too). It's one of those books that ends up being a lot more than the simple story and the kids enjoyed making up more details about what was happening and what the characters were doing.

BigGapMum Wed 11-Jun-14 07:22:25

This is a lovely board book with sweet illustrations. A simple story about different people making friends. A perfect book for DGD2.

Earlytorise Wed 11-Jun-14 08:43:21

I ( joymaker ) was sent a copy of this free book a week ago and first read it to both my just turned 4 yo and soon to be 2 yo DS at bedtime. They both loved it. I had to read it to them a few times in fact -the text is short and sweet- and since then it has been requested many times.

DS1 also picks it to read to DS2 a lot. They love the subject matter and can identify with it as they are taken to the beach frequently. They love the illustration and both always have chuckle at the picture where the umbrella appears to be blowing away.

The book is really good quality (wipeable pages and lovely padded feel to the cover) and a nice size for little hands. Agree with Liana83 that it would make a lovely keepsake book. I would in future definitely consider this as part of a young child's gift.

Finally discovered where to post review, sorry it's a bit slow. This is a lovely little book. Sweet drawings full of character. My favourite bit is the last couple of pages where the mums tell their children how much they enjoyed spending the day with them. Melted my heart. Thank you for giving us this book.
