Bing: Bed Time giveaway

bing-bedtimeOur children's bookclub for January 2014 starts with Bing: Bed Time by Ted Dewan.

It's time for Bing Bunny to brush his teeth, have a bath and cuddle up with his companion, Flop. But, oh no, where IS Flop?

Share the ups and downs of everyday life in this playful pre-school series from award-winning picture book creator Ted Dewan.

With short, repetitive text, bold, bright artwork and appealing characters, Bing offers both parent and child an enjoyable reading experience and a simple, reassuring guiding principle - that, whatever happens, it's just a Bing thing, a normal occurrence, and nothing to get upset about.

What parents say:

  • "Any toddler will love these books. My 13-month-old adores them, and brings them to me so that we can read them together. Colourful, funny... an absolute must for any baby!"
  • "My four year old loved this book as a toddler and my two year old loves this book, too. Bing is so funny and if you read it the way it's written, it's hilarious to kids!"
  • "My 28-month-old son LOVES Bing Bunny and Flop more than any other book character. Sometimes I have to read these books over and over in one setting. They have really nurtured my son's love of books. Thank you Ted Dewan!"
  • "I have been a professional child-carer for 20 years. The Ted Dewan Bing Bunny books have been a firm favourite with my under-threes. Some of their first words come from the stories."
