Can you creep like a mouse or cuddle like a koala? This book is full of animals and animal actions for kids of all sizes to copy as they get ready to settle down for the night.
A story told with simple text, accompanied by delightful, big, clear pictures of the animals mid-action.
This would make for a fun bedtime read especially if the adult is willing to act out the actions with the child.

Dads all over are very different, that is what this book celebrates.
Nick Bland’s humour is on display in this wonderful celebration of fatherhood.
The text is simple and the illustrations absolutely adorable. This is a wonderful idea for Father’s day or any day really in which you want to enjoy the bond between father and child. If my kids were younger this is the sort of book I would love to share with them. Best suited to really young children.
