(Age: 1-3) Recommended. 2017 has seen the release of six new toddler's world learning board books from Pat-a-cake. Titled ABC, 123, Colours, On the Move and Funny Faces, each book is sturdy, vibrant, full of pictures and ideal for very young children. Each page is filled with simple and colourful illustrations paired with very simple wording. Pages are thick and strong which is perfect for excited little hands. At the end of each book, children are surprised with a large pop-up which is a wonderful conclusion to each theme. Additionally, Funny Faces has a 'look and laugh' mirror which is said to stimulate baby's vision and help recognize the faces of the people they love.
Overall, the six books in the release are wonderful additions to a toddler's library as they are excellent early learning resources.
