Little Baby's Playtime, by Nick Sharratt and Sally Symes, reviewed by Pippa Goodhart
This is a book of simple genius. A sturdy, square, little board book, it has two holes that allow you to poke fingers through to make a pair of wiggly baby legs.
Each spread shows a different baby, sitting in a high chair, going down a slide, and more, each picture brought to giggly delightful life by those finger legs.
Sally Symes' text is a simple, pleasing rhyme with a refrain that babies can join in with. We have 'One little baby riding in a sling', then 'One little baby on a playground swing', with a 'wiggle waggle' to accompany each.
A blissful book to share with babies ... and there's another book, a 'busy day' version, coming out soon.
