Another adventure for Stripy Horse from an early morning “wide awake” to “nighty-night, sleepyhead”. Stripy Horse’s day is full of happy routines that all toddlers will enjoy.


Stripy Horse, Time for Bed by Jim Helmore, Karen Wall

Stripy Horse is a hugely lovable animal in children's book publishing at the moment and we're thrilled to see the publisher has decided to create some sturdy board books for babies and toddlers featuring this character who has, until now featured only in picture books more suitable for 3+ year olds. Thrills and spills are the order of the day for Stripy horse as he goes about his daily routine and here it's time for bed. Perfect bedtime reading for even the smallest toddler. A sister board book is called Stripy Horse, Just for You.

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

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.
