Usborne Books - Five-minute bedtime stories
Overall though, I think it is a beautiful book.
Usborne Books - Little children's music book
Both my daughter and I have (and are still)very much enjoying this book. The story is short enough to keep the attention of little readers and is made fun with the interactive element, without the music the story itself is a little basic but as it has the music element that really doesn't matter.
Usborne Books - Very first words My Body
I like the collection of word banks as they are all things that children can associate with and how the book is organised.
Usborne Books - Where do baby animals come from?
It was a great book to broach the subject of where babies come from with a young child in a fun and light way. The Added poster was a great bonus that now adorns my daughter's bedroom wall.

While they are packing, a petrol bomb is thrown through the front door of their flat, highlighting the extreme danger they face. Over the coming months, Ty becomes Joe, is given a new look and starts at a new school. To his surprise, he finds he is attracting the attention of the girls in his class, and the boys find his need to conceal his real identity cool - being Joe is not so bad. His ability as a runner is spotted and he starts training under a college student, a wheelchair user who is a Paralympics contender, but this special treatment attracts resentment. Somehow Joe keeps drawing attention to himself despite his efforts to remain anonymous.
