My four year old says that this book is funny and likes to read it over and over. She has started identifying words and has heard the story so many times that she can tell some version of it when reading to others.

I like the clean and easy to understand pictures and the fact that the adult information (the boring stuff) is at the back of the book in small print. Being a board book makes it that little more durable and appealing, plus its the perfect size for small hands. I'm not a fan of pink but think that this works really well with the sellability and the target market. There is not a lot of writing in the book but it really gets the message home, that Ollie like most children, loves his mum.

I wish I had have seen this prior to mothers day because I would have brought a copy for both my mother and my mother in law. All mums need to know that they are loved and as we grow older, we often forget to tell them. Will they be making one for father's day, I hope so because I would love to get it. Books like this take pride of place in the bookshelf and at that price, you can't go wrong. It is worth buying more than one copy, especially if you have a child like mine that likes to bite books.

This a perfect feel good board book for mothers day.

Made of solid cardboard it is perfect for little fingers and has beautiful colourful illustration's that complement the lovely story as Ollie and his mum go on an adventure. My girls enjoyed reading this and loved the illustration's as well as at the end when Ollie and his mum say goodnight. The text is very simple and rhymes so it is a nice easily lilting story to read. Rather randomly Ollie and his mum have a dog at the beginning of the story and at the end but the dog doesn't go on a walk with them. My little one enjoyed spotting the dog and talking about what was happening in each picture but was looking for the dog on the middle pages.

Although the cover is pink the rest of the book will appeal to a boy or a girl. This is a very cute little board book that would make a lovely gift for mothers day or just a nice book for a gift to a new mum and her babe.

I really like little books like this because they are solid enough to withstand a lot of reading and some chewing if baby really likes the story. This is a very simple book but one which I can easily see as being a favourite because of the lovely illustration's and simplicity of the story.
