Reviews

Well-loved classic... Little ones will love (and recognise all too soon!) the oft-repeated 'Not now, Bernard', leaving older children and their parents to appreciate the black humour and static, expressive illustrations * Guardian, The Best New Children's Books supplement * My favourite books for very young children are Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak and Not Now Bernard by David McKee. -- Michael Rosen Even very young children see the joke. * T.E.S. * This is a true classic! * The Good Book Guide * A brilliant image of parent-child relationships that brings matching ear-to-ear grins. * Books for Keeps *

Have you seen Elmer’s Photo Patchwork, an innovative activity-based app that encourages creativity and fun? Elmer the Patchwork Elephant is an elephant who stands out from the herd, and Elmer’s app is different too. It doesn’t keep children glued to the screen, it makes them look up, look around and get inspired by the world. The only limit is their imagination. By using an iPad or iPhone’s camera to take photos of interesting colours and textures, kids can add them to an elephant’s patchwork pattern. Aimed at children aged 3+. Elmer’s Photo Patchwork app is available for £1.99 from the App Store for iPad and iPhone. Find out more at www.elmersapps.com and view the app preview video here.
