This new large-format board book from Ice Water Press is heaven in a cardboard sandwich for tots (and parents) because it combines all those myriad books we need to impress upon our wee ones - colours, numbers, shapes, animals, favourite words, opposites and the ABC, all into one brightly coloured book.
It also features some clever activity ideas for older toddlers - letter tracing, colouring mixing, search and find, imitation and matching - giving it an educational bent that hardly feels educational.
Bright, cartoonish illustrations and a tough-wearing cover and pages make it ideal for carting around and diving into at any given opportunity. Sure to become a toddler fave.
