"Ten Shiny Snowflakes" by Russell Julien (Caterpillar Books / Little Tiger Press)

We're back on the trail of super little festive books to pick up in time for Christmas, and this lovely little book from Caterpillar Books / Little Tiger Press is perfect for fidgety and curious little youngsters who are just beginning to count.

A family of bears looks out at the snowy landscape and can't wait to get out there in the snow and play (I know exactly how they feel! C'mon, we've had enough rain now!) As children turn the pages, the bright shiny bumpy snowflakes magically disappear, encouraging children to count down and try and guess which snowflake will disappear next!

With lovely snowy illustrations and text by Russell Julien, it's fun and tactile and children can't resist the snowflakes. Great for a range of ages but absolutely perfect for the really tiny who are looking for something cooler than the average chewable board book.

Charlotte's best bit: Guessing which snowflake will disappear next (She's sneaky though and kept cheating!)

Daddy's favourite bit: Beautifully made, really sturdy and touchable. Absolutely perfect for tiddlers!
