Meekoo and the Little Nursery
Publisher: Nosy Crow
This delightful, interactive board book explores the highs and lows of a typically busy day at nursery. Meekoo the bear starts the day with a noisy music lesson, before painting a colourful picture. When Bo and Pim refuse to include Meekoo in their game, kindly Ari comes to the rescue and the two friends have great fun playing outside with a ball.
Ideal for those who attend, or are about to start, nursery, this reassuring tale with vibrant illustrations is full of familiar experiences for toddlers. Children will love to press the sound buttons on each page, which produce entertaining noises relating to the story, including a flushing toilet, a bouncy ball and lots of kisses for Big Bear at hometime. The assorted animal characters are non-gender specific, ensuring it will appeal to a broad range of readers. Sturdy cardboard pages are easy for small hands to grasp, while rounded corners prevent accidental pokes in the eye. Look out for other titles in the Meekoo series, each of which features an on/off switch at the back and a replaceable battery, prolonging the life of the book.
