My son's favourite book
Always a smile when he looks at this (10 months), loves to turn the pages and feel the different textures. Fantastic, want the animal one next.

Wonderful book!
My daughter (9mo) loves this book. After we made the animal noises for her, she would point at each animal and squeal in imitation! It is a very eye-catching and attractive book for babies.
