Silly Mummy, Silly Daddy by Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick


Silly Mummy, Silly Daddy by Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick

Beth won't smile today. But who can cheer her up? Not Mummy, not Daddy, not Grandpa or Grandma. Not even silly Auntie Bea. Can anyone brighten Beth's mood? Can her big sister save the day?


A very simple picture book, with bold bright illustrations and just a few words on each page. The repetitive text, Silly Mummy, Silly Daddy, Silly Granny etc, encourages young children to join in with the story. It deals with a familiar situation in a straightforward manner, enhanced by lively illustrations. This is an amusing book for parents and toddlers to enjoy together, and could also be used as the basis of a discussion about feeling cross. A wonderfully cheeky story that reveals the unique relationship between siblings. Carousel
