There are too few board books that start life as a board book, designed for that shape, space and audience. Here is a board book to celebrate. Julia Donaldson’s simple rhyming text provides a jaunty accompaniment to Cobb’s gently atmospheric illustrations. The lift-the-flap technique works very well here as the solution to each problem – a lamb in the pram, an owl in the towel – is neatly revealed. At the end the complete rhyme is presented as a song; the tune accessed either through the QPR code on the book or through the website; it works. Then for those toddlers who need a bit more excitement before being cuddled with ted, there are actions to incorporate with the recital. A lovely little book.
