My Mummy Says... by Justine Smith and Angie Stevens (review copy) - A padded board book, perfect for young children to share with their mummies.
The first title in a new series about special relationships in the lives of little children. Beautifully illustrated, warm and humorous in tone, the simple story is about a chance encounter, making new friends and the very special relationship that exists between mummies and their children.
A soft and gentle take on family life and relationships that perfectly captures the humour and impulsive nature of family life, and those people who hold a special place in the lives of every child. From Goodreads
A cute story two mothers separately taking their children on a trip to the beach, when they bump into each other. It sweetly shows the fun had between mother and child, and the love mothers have for their children.
The illustrations are simple, yet beautiful, and just perfect for a picture board book. Delightful to both children and adults, Angie Stevens' illustrations are works of art that would look great on your wall. The slow rhythm and rhyme of the short, sharp sentences of the story will keep very young children attentive, as they listen to their Mummy or Daddy's voice reading them the story.
A really sweet story that would be great for young toddlers!
Thank you to Macmillan Children's Books for the review copy.
