Time For Bed, Panda
Publisher: Campbell Books
A panda with googly eyes (which you can move around with your fingers to create all manner of expressions) is getting ready for bed: having a bath, brushing her teeth and reading a story before snuggling down under the covers. On each opposite page, Panda asks readers if they can repeat three relevant words along with her: bath, bubbles and towel on one page, and bed, moon and milk on another. Babies and toddlers can also enjoy sticking their fingers through circular holes in the book and turning the pages that way.
A delightfully cuddly and sweet board book for little ones, this one also has enduring appeal as babies become toddlers and start learning words. There are just a few point-and-say words on each spread, but it’s enough to start with and get kids used to seeing and saying objects and their names, even if they can’t read. The googly eyes are a fun extra which lend a play element to the book, too.
