Tales from Acorn Wood - Rabbit's Nap by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler (Macmillan Children's Books)

Tales from Acorn Wood - Rabbit's Nap

Written by Julia Donaldson
Illustrated by Axel Scheffler

Published by Macmillan Children's Books

More from Julia and Axel on the blog this week as we take a look at the fabulous Acorn Wood series. Printed in a neat mini-sized hardback format, these pocket-sized and charming tales are adorable and fun - and regular readers of the blog will know just how much my curious 6 year old loves lift-the-flap books.

Rabbit is sleepy, and all she wants to do is take a nap. But try as she might, rabbit just can't get any peace and quiet, other animals are being FAR too noisy!

Little ones are encouraged to investigate what's keeping rabbit awake as each page spread has hidden flaps to lift and explore. The book's sturdy construction can stand up to a fair amount of punishment even under the most fidgety little fingers - it also means it's the perfect book for little ones to take away with them on holiday or to read in the car.

The Acorn Wood range are utterly charming (we absolutely adore Fox's Socks too). They're short and sweet so perfect to read one or two before bed (and let's hope your little ones get to sleep quicker than poor Rabbit!)

Charlotte's best bit: She adores the lift-the-flap books, particularly the fun in investigating what all those noisy little animals get up to as Rabbit wants to snooze

Daddy's Favourite bit: Fun pocket-sized tales, perfectly pitched and presented - absolutely adorable for quite a wide range of ages
