“A delightful present”
My small grandson is only one and a half but he loves this book - and so do I. It has board pages and can stand up to one-year old handling. The music buttons produce sound that any adult can tolerate and even grow to love - none of that noisy plastic squawking that so often accompanies children's toys. This is my top tip as a Christmas present for a child from one to six or seven.
