Hello School by Angie Rozelaar (Campbell Books)
Though we primarily focus on brilliant children's picture books for ages 5-9, we love looking at all sorts of books - even board books!
Charlotte was actually very excited about "Hello School" when she realised that it was a book that was bright, colourful but most importantly had 'bits to play with'.
Angie Rozelaar's "Hello" range covers all sorts of subjects like Christmas and Holidays but this is timed perfectly for re-release to tie in with children's first days at school - or in fact as a great little nursery book so that toddlers can find out what they'll be letting themselves in for!
School is fun, and in Angie's book we find out just how much fun you can have in class. Drawing, painting, making things, learning about other countries and sitting down for a well earned lunch in the cafeteria.
The book is nicely sized and sturdy, and the interactive elements are huge fun (even for six year old Charlotte who sat for ages making all sorts of scoffing and slurping noises while playing with the school lunchtime spread in the book).
"Hello School" is out now from Campbell Books.
Charlotte's best bit: She loved playing School Lunches with the kids sitting down to scoff sandwiches, spaghetti and slurp juice.
Daddy's Favourite bit: A really nicely designed and high quality addition to Angie's brilliant "Hello" board book series.
