Up to the Skies by Nanette Newman, Sam Williams


Up to the Skies by Nanette Newman, Sam Williams

A book for browsing, dipping into, and sharing between toddlers and adults. A book to answer the questions young children always ask. Simple text and charming, child friendly illustrations make this a delightful celebration of early childhood, as a toddler with a new baby sister asks about his/her own babyhood. Other Hodder Toddler titles include: What's That Noise? Flip and Flop, Cartwheels in the Kitchen, One Too Many Tigers, Mouse and Elephant, Squeak! Squeak! Flip and Flop, Little Sunbeam


My children enjoyed this book especially the rhyming words and illustrations. A good book to discuss and explore the babyhood years and how we develop and change. Clearly printed - fun to look at and share together. -- Somerset Children's Book Review

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

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.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

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