This is such a gorgeous wee book, which has such a cute pictures right from the front cover which consists of a picture of a cute pink pig playing a game of peek-a-boo as it pops out from behind it's hands. The front cover as well as the cute pig on it also has some interesting textures which drew the babies who I care for straight to it (as well as Miss 2) they loved the bumpy, shiny texture of the glitter in the trees and the glossy embossed outlines on the pig. The book is a very sturdy and strong board book, and even the lift the flaps in the book of a sturdier cardboard than you usually find in such books.

Having worked with under 2 year olds for the past 10 years I have to say that this is one of the better 'baby books' that I have come across. The animals actually look like the animal which they are supposed to look like, and the wording in the book refers to the name of the animal, for example a pig is a pig and not a piggy and a sheep is a sheep and not a baa baa. Each of the animals in the book has a double page each, on one side is a small paragraph about the animal which describes what it looks like, and what it likes to do and also the sound that it makes, on the opposite page is a picture of the animal, which is covering its eyes with it's hands (this is a flap that lifts down and reveals the animals face, and also says 'peek-a-boo' and what the animal is). Each of the pages has a brightly coloured background which contains cute pictures of what each of the animals likes in a lighter shade of the colour, for example the rabbit has carrots in the background, and the cat balls of wool.

The children I read this book were under 2 and the just loved lifting the flap up and down and saying "boo", i'm pretty sure this book is the reason we have a sudden interest in playing peek-a-boo in the room. The children loved being able to identify and name the animals and also enjoyed making all of the different animal sounds. Miss 2 also enjoyed this book and loved the fact that she knew all the animals and the sounds already, after reading this book to her a few times she started picking up other facts about the animals such as what they liked to eat and telling me all about these things.

Certainly a book I would recommend to parents of young children, an absolutely delightful, colourful, bright book which is interactive and lots of fun, every daycare centre with an under 2's room should have a copy!

This is a super cute board book which introduces your child to farm animals. The cover art for the book is really appealing. As soon as my youngest saw this book she nicked off with it. Before she even saw it, my eldest picked it up and wanted to read it. So it has great appeal just based on the friendly looking pig on the cover.

The bold outline of the pig on the cover pops out and is nice and glossy. The yellow behind has a matte finish and then the green is lovely and glittery. It also feels rough too. So right from the cover, you have three different textures to experience which is something babies and young children love to do with their hands and mouths.

Inside for each animal you get a two page spread. The background is bright and has a lovely motif to each one that is slightly different based on the animal. So the background for the kitten has wool balls, the rabbit has carrots, the pig has mushrooms and pears. The prose is in fairly easy to read black text and rhymes, then the child is asked a question - Guess Who? in bold white text. When you move the flap, it takes the animals arms away from their eyes and reveals with a peek-a-boo who the animal was.

Just as with the background is matched to the animal, their revealed animal type is in a font that seems to be selected for them individually too. So that was quite cute. My only issue with it was that the animal names were in capitals. I would have liked title case or lower case, especially for my elder child who read through it a couple of times. However, as another friend mentioned to me, at least they are called Pig instead of 'Piggie' and so on.

Despite any concerns I might have around the font capitalisation, the main thing is what the kids thought. Miss 8 loved this book and was very happy to practice reading to her sister anytime she wanted. Miss 3 loved this book and spent ages looking over it and opening the flaps. It was pretty sturdy, though I would probably cover the flaps with Duraseal later. It would be a great baby shower present, as it would easily grow with baby all the way through to school age and $10 is a bargain for that much entertainment.

Here Emma meets a smooth-talking cat named Jack who has a plan to rescue her sister. He shows her how to shape-shift, to develop claws and cat senses. But cat magic isn't easy, and Emma soon learns her sister is in the thrall of the faeries, the most beautiful and dangerous creatures of all.
