The Lovereading4Kids comment

It’s bedtime for Ted, but he’s just too busy yet – flip the flaps and you can see why: Ted is in the bath with some penguins, busy brushing his teeth with a crocodile and drinking his milk with a tiger. At last he’s ready to be tucked up in bed with his cuddly friends and fast asleep (still in his trademark bobble hat). Sophy Henn’s new board book series is simple enough for the very youngest to enjoy but still manages to tell a story and to celebrate the boundless scope and joy of a child’s imagination. These little books deserve to become classics. ~ Andrea Reece


Bedtime with Ted by Sophy Henn

Meet Ted, a brand new toddler character created by award-winning author-illustrator Sophy Henn.
Playtime With Ted and Bedtime With Ted launch this brand new character-led series of chunky lift-the-flap board books.

It's time for bed, Ted! But Ted is busy. He's brush, brush brushing his teeth with a crocodile! And splish splosh splashing with penguins in the bath. And jump, jump, jumping out his fidgets with a kangaroo...

But all the craziness leads to a quiet and soothing ending, making this the ideal fun bedtime read for toddlers. Perfect for fans of Chris Haughton and Rob Biddulph, this sturdy board book will have pre-schoolers chortling with laughter!


‘Two really gorgeous board books from Henn which bring her signature style and humour to the youngest of children’ Fiona Noble, The Bookseller

Elosie Clarkson – age 11

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
