Lothian, 2019. ISBN: 9780734419408.
(Ages: 0-3) Recommended. Board Book. Themes: Clothing, Family members. From the creator of Moving your body comes this similar board book introducing little ones to different items of clothing and family members: 'My sister wears underpants', 'My uncle and cousin wear overalls'. There is a pleasing diversity of people, including an uncle in a wheelchair, a step-brother and various skin and hair colours.
The illustrations are fun and stylish, depicting a safe, happy and comforting family environment. Young children will be able to identify with the representations of daily life, including playing inside and waving goodbye to grandma.
This is a great early concept book for very young children who are just learning about the world around them.
