'My baby quietens down as soon as I start to read...'

My 6 month old loves this book which was a Christmas present from friends of the family. As soon as I start reading it to him he'll quieten down and wont make a sound until I'm done.
I love that it rhythms as this makes it soothing and enjoyable for bedtime reading. My son is always fascinated when I use different voices for the different characters in the book. We always read it twice each night. This is a gift that keeps on giving.

Lost count of the number of times we have read this. My toddler chooses it most nights at bedtime. Lovely pictures and great for learning about numbers too.

We've got this book as a gift and Dan loves it when daddy reads to him in different animal voices. He giggles when it comes to the end.

Fantastic book. My little boy fell in love with it and was the only book he would stay still for and would settle him when ill/upset if we read it to him!
