Ladybird Books, 2020. ISBN: 9780241422328.
(Age: 0-3) New fathers will love reading this Baby Touch book to their little child. And any baby will love the touch-and-feel aspects of the books, feeling the soft nose of the horse, the black stripes on the tiger, the soft white fur of the dog and textured pink material of daddy elephant. The bright colours are very attractive and will hold the baby's attention, their simple shapes and design engaging.
A lot of fun can be had when reading the book, with the adult making the appropriate noise that goes with each baby animal and its daddy. There will be lots of neighing with daddy horse, roaring with daddy tiger, woofing with daddy dog, and tooting with daddy elephant. But the page that the baby will most love is the last page with its wonderful mirror with the words, Baby, look. Here you are!
Others in the series are Baby touch: Opposites and my little grandson's favourite, Baby touch: Night-night.
