WHAT IS IT?
A board book for babies that is very small and comes on a spring with a clip so you can attach it to your babys pushchair frame.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
This book is very easy and has got a photograph on every page of an In The Night Garden character and then on the opposite page it tells you their name in a little sentence about the character.
WHO IS IT FOR?
My daughter is 10 months old and she likes books so she has had it since she was about 6 months. I put it on her pushchair to give her something to do while I am pushing her and I read the book to her also. There are not very many words so I read it to her in English as it is printed in the book and I translate to Italian because I want her to be able to speak both languages. Easy books like this help if you are teaching your children two languages from birth because they help children to soak up the different ways to say the word, this one is not so good because I can not translate the characters funny names so we do not have very much Italian practice.
WHAT I THINK
I think this is a very nice book. It is made to be strong and the paper on the board has not peeled very much even though my daughter chews the book sometimes now she is teething. The spring has stretched badly and I am going to cut it off I think because my daughter keeps wrapping it round her hands, I have got her another board book for her pushchair so we can keep this in the car or at home. The clip is not very strong but the book did never fall off my pushchair because of the frame being square so that held it tightly.
I like that the colours are all bright and I think I will have to buy her an In The Night Garden DVD because she laughs at the characters and thinks it is very funny. She likes me to read the character names because I think they must sound very funny to her in my accent and she laughs a lot when I say Macka Packa!
It does not tell a story but I do not think you need a story for young children like this because it is the sound of your voice reading to them that is the most stimulating and because when you read you are giving attention to the child and making them feel loved.
In The Night Garden Buggy Book costs about £4 and you can buy it in Amazon and places that sell baby toys also, I bought mine in Sainsburys when they had a lot of In The Night Garden toys but I did not buy a toy because I did not know of the television programme then.
