Come on, let’s play

[In-house author/s?], illustrated by Cheryl Orsini
Hachette Australia
ISBN: 9780734415516           RRP: $24.99

This catalogues a day in the life of a family. It’s a day off, no school, no work, and bouncing quatrains relate the events of the day, each across a two-page opening: sleep-in games; after-breakfast play outside; family games later inside; quiet reading time before bed. The illustrations are simply drawn in a catchy cartooned style with lively colours and playful line in this ideal book for the playroom collection, for showing that a day in can be just as much fun as a day out.
