Review: Hello Friends

I just love toddler and baby books that pack illustration punch with their pages.

This adorable little book is small format with curved sides to fit tiny little hands. The rattling teether at the top of the book will take the brunt of any chewing and slobbering (note: slobbering over books is common in adults, too), and the lovely thick, lift-up pages are easy to navigate.

Each top page features the smiling face of a wee animal, with a close-up of it's held object on the page below. A cat with a glass of milk, a bunny with a tulip. A puppy with a bouncy ball.

Immensely pretty, pastel illustrations make this a joy to flick through. Great for the tot who loves a bit of illustration glam with their reading.

Other books in the Little Friends series include two bath books, below.
