Capstone Books [Hardie Grant Egmont]
ISBN: 9781623701833
RRP: $14.95

With colourful graphic images and punchy rhymes this book is a silly game which even the youngest of readers will enjoy – infectious chuckling from a baby in the cot as the faces change; entertainment of the toddler trying to make the sounds that fit the bearded character; the antics of the adult doing the same – arrg! from the pirate, ho, ho, ho! from Santa. Books can be fun and here’s one to prove it. (Also Hats, Masks and Teeth; all in board format.)
