A delightful soft cloth book with brilliantly colourful illustrations that will delight even the smallest babies. Each page has a colourful scene to capture the attention of little babies – a garden full of colourful butterflies, lots of beautiful flowers and fish swimming along the ocean shore. The soft cloth is perfect for little hands to grasp and the surprise sound that comes from the crackly foil sewn inside the book will delight babies. Offered in a smart presentation box, this is a beautiful gift for a new family and a wonderful way to introduce babies to books and reading.

“Bright colours and silky soft pages make this particularly appealing. A smiley little panda appears on each page, exploring a garden, riding a train and playing in the park before sailing into the night sky in a balloon at bedtime. There’s lots to point at and name. A page of crackly foil gives a very satisfying rustle when squeezed, extra fun for baby.”
