Thank you mum2hamish and Hamish... our books came today and they are lovely :-D We had fun reading them this evening! We don't have many board books yet so it is nice to have some that she'll be able to play with herself sooner rather than later :-D
Thank you!

Glad your boys liked the book Cathy!

My 2nd book is being dropped off on our walk tonight ;)

I’ll get my books off tomorrow, only just picked them up and now am worried if age appropriate. I’m not so worried if the child is a bit young for a book as they’ll grow into it just what if the book I have is too young. Oh I feel like pming the mum and asking don’t want anyone disappointed.
I find this so hard, knowing what age is at what developmentally and interests…
Whaaaaa

The pics are great and I make up most of the stories anyway. To make them more interesting or if too many words for age I just read the pitchers how i think the kids want to hear it.

Don't worry Cathy, I bought a book for one of DS's buddies and I didn't realise until I got hom it said 3+ years due to parts. The I figured, she won't read yet, so she'll have supervision.
