Mummy and Baby Safari Soft-to-Touch Jigsaws by Smriti Prasadam


Mummy and Baby Safari Soft-to-Touch Jigsaws by Smriti Prasadam

Mummy and baby lion practise little roars. Then they have a little nap and practise little snores. Stroke their silky skin! There are zebras, giraffes, lions and hippos to meet in this gorgeous book. Children can press out and play with the eight velvety safari animals, matching each baby with its mummy and then fitting them together again! Mummy and Baby Safari is one in a series of four books, each featuring two adorable soft-to-touch animals on every page. These delightfully simple jigsaws are designed especially for very young children to develop hand-eye co-ordination, and are perfect for little hands to stroke.
