Reviews

'In today's world, where children are so detached from the growing process, books like this play an important part and I was delighted to see this new series... It's also good encouragement towards getting our Five a Day. Well-chosen text makes this a good early reader. The colour photos are excellent.' - September 2013 - Parents in Touch'
