It's Bear's birthday and Squirrel wants to give his friend the best birthday
present ever. But what do you give the bear who has everything?
Squirrel has just the answer! A stick. Except it's so much more than a
Busy Alice is a perfect introduction, for young children, to Lewis
Carroll's magical story, Alice in Wonderland. Push, pull and
turn mechanisms to bring the story to life and introduce all the
main characters, Alice, the White Rabbit, the March Hare, Mad
Hatter, Dormouse and of course the Queen of Hearts.
A bright colourful and sturdy board book that was enjoyed
equally by my 2.5 and 5 year old children. The pictures are full of
little details and the pull out and interactive parts of the book
are well thought out and easy for little fingers to grasp.
Zippo doesn't want to be an ordinary hippo. He wants to be super!
Being good at swimming and splashing in mud aren't really
superpowers, though. Perhaps he can fly like his friend Roxi. But
who's ever heard of a flying hippopotamus? Especially one with such
a big bottom...
This fantastic story celebrates differences between the animals
and has lots of animals getting squashed by bottoms and a very
happy ending. What's not to like?
Each month 150 members of the Mumsnet panel are sent one of
three books to read with their child aged two to six: each
book is read and reviewed by 50 MNers. Once they have read the
book, the reviewers complete a survey form to rate the book on a
scale of 1 to 10 where 10 is absolutely brilliant and 1 is
terrible. The book with the highest average score wins
the Mumsnet Rated badge.
