The ideal size of the book makes the book easy to fit into a little one’s hand, therefore, making the book easy for them to handle on their own. The sturdiness of the hard cardboard pages, once again making it easy for a young child to turn the pages without difficulty or damage to the book. The beautiful bright coloured picture pages with a very simple story line, ideal for the very young, which, with the combination of the story and picture, stimulates the young child’s imagination.
These types of books are wonderful and brings back memories of my childhood when this type of book was normal for young children and I know, I treasured the books I had that were like this. We really should be putting books back into our children’s hands instead of putting an IPad in them.
I highly recommend, anyone buying for young children, to purchase these for them.

The stories are rather short: each book has 5 pages with images and 5 pages with text.
However, considering the age of my baby, the size was perfect.
He can hold them by himself and the hard cardboard pages seem to be from a sturdy, durable material.
