“encourages sharing and kindness”
Love this - as good as the lion inside. I bought this as I was looking for good literature to encourage sharing and kindness. Rachel Bright's prose is easy to read - the rhythm and rhyme flows easily.
“Lovely book and well illustrated”
Fun to read and a nice addition to the series. Our baby loves hardback books and finished sentences with these poet style of story telling
