Synopsis

Meet the Parents by Peter Bently

Kids may think their parents are only there to boss them around and tell them what to do. And there’s no getting away from it - parents do have to do quite a lot of that! But this brilliant picture book explains just some of the many other things mums and dads do to make life great, from helping out with building dens to mending toys and solving problems and, of course, giving plenty of cuddles and tickles.
