Very good, it has an eye catching cover and is a decent sized book. Good quality paperback, sturdy enough for little fingers that like to
pull on pages. My son was very excited when he saw the book. He loved
the illustrations and they definitely peaked his interest and made him want to
hear the story behind them.Beautifully
illustrated on the cover and throughout the book with nice bright colours.My
son loved hearing the story, so much so it quickly became one of his favourite
books. He enjoyed the story.
There’s good flow to the story when reading, so it really keeps your child’s
attention from start to finish. Very
stimulating he was able to count up all the hats on each page and had fun
telling me what the different types of hats were. Very good, lovely little story, perfect for
toddlers and pre-schoolers. I would definitely be more inclined to seek
out more books from this author. I would also purchase this book again as a
gift for my nephew. Great value
for money, £7.99 is what I would expect to pay for is type of book. I just love the Illustrations of this book,
they’re brightly coloured and eye catching, and everything you’d want for a
child’s book. I would purchase
this book as it would make the perfect gift for my nephews. It was a joy to
read and I would definitely recommend. Lovely story and beautiful illustrations.
Myself and my son both enjoyed reading this book and it’s quickly become one of
our favourites. This product has been great. We’ve had lots of fun with
it, not just reading the story but also making up little games with the
pictures as we’ve gone along like how many hats can you see? What animals can
you see? Name the hat? It’s really allowed my son to get involved in the story
and we’ve both enjoyed it. Nicola

The book was bright and colourful.The quality of the book is
brilliant. My daughter when she saw this
book wanted to read it straight away. The
illustrations were great very bright and catchy. My daughter loved having this book read to her. She loved the story and found it
extremely funny with all the different hats. This book was well written and
certainly stimulating. A brilliant book
and now we have read it will definitely be looking to purchase more from this
author. I’ve read this to my daughter every bed time definitely worth the price.
I really love the rhyming parts and how silly it was. I would buy this book and
certainly recommend. This was a lovely
book to read, and my daughter just loved it so super happy. Nicola Skeels – Ella 3 Years

It looked to be of good quality. Suitable for older children as
it’s a soft cover and would get easily torn by younger children. Good quality same standard as other books of its
type. James could not wait to read this book. It looked good. Again, very similar to other books so it
didn’t stand out as one I’d definitely pick up in the library for example. The
illustrations were good. Possibly a little babyish for an 8 year old, but my 4
year old did like the pictures. He understood at the end of the story, that
it’s more fun to share. I really like the fact it was easy to read. The story
was a little simple, but conveyed the idea that it was good to share. I
wouldn’t say stimulating. It didn’t prompt immediate change in his behaviours,
and didn’t want to read it again and again. It was a good book to read to young
children. Especially siblings or children who have difficulty sharing. I
wouldn’t search out the author, but if I came across them I’d take a look. It is a good quality book. Personally I feel the price is a bit high for
this type of book. I like that the story
was short and simple, but conveyed a good message. It was easy to read with
children of different ages as it wasn’t too long. I would not purchase this
book. Given the length and simplicity of the story, it’s quite expensive. Also
my children didn’t keep choosing it or asking for it to read repeatedly, so it
wouldn’t be good value for money in our family. I would recommend it to parents
with a child who doesn’t like to share. It is a nice story, nicely illustrated,
but it could/should be cheaper in my opinion. Nice read, but not necessarily a
book me or my children would pick up time and time again. Michelle Lingwood –
