Bing: Get Dressed by Ted Dewan


Bing: Get Dressed by Ted Dewan

The first in an exciting new relaunch of Ted Dewan's Bing books - resized and beautifully produced for the next generation of toddlers - paving the way for Bing's TV debut in 2014. Ted Dewan has created a series that focuses on the dynamic between toddler and parent, and that speaks to them both equally, about life as a toddler and life with a toddler. With short, repetitive texts, bold, bright artwork and appealing characters, Bing offers both parent and child an enjoyable reading experience and a simple, reassuring guiding principle - that, whatever happens, it's just a Bing thing, a normal occurrence, and nothing to get upset about. Getting dressed is an important life skill to learn. It's also really difficult! It's hard to know which bit of your body goes into which hole! Clever Bing has mastered putting on his his clothes (with a little help from his constant companion Flip), but he's struggling with the right order. And when he's fully dressed, uh-oh, he has an accident. Don't worry, Bing. It's no big thing. Just get dressed all over again! That's the Bing thing.


Customer reviews: My 4 year old loved this book as a toddler and my 2 year old loves this book too. Bing is so funny and if you read it the way it's written, it's hilarious to kids!

Initially I found Bing Bunny a little bizarre - but then I am an adult and not in the core target 2 year old absolutely adores it and has opened my eyes to Bing's charms.

I have been a professional child-carer for 20 years. The Ted Dewan Bing Bunny books have been a firm favourite with my under 3s. Some of their first words come from the stories.
