This wonderfully interactive novelty book in which Lulu chooses from a range of clothes with zips to fasten, pockets to look in, dresses to admire and colours to consider, has top toddler appeal.
Aliens and underpants make this a popular children’s choice, and the fun, rhyming text makes this a good book for joining in or sharing. Can be enjoyed equally by pre-school and older children.
This enduring classic is ideal for sharing with groups of children. The rhyme and repetition encourages everyone to get involved and can even be acted out.
Perfect for keen footballers, this practical handbook allows you to step into the boots of a David Beckham Academy player and discover top tips to help improve your performance on the pitch.
An impressive model kit including fantastic features such as pop-up ghosts, spooky picture frames and skeletons. Glue, scissors and a bit of work should result in a masterpiece!
