We’re big fans of ‘What The Ladybird Heard‘ by Julia Donaldson & Lydia Monks. In fact we went through a stage towards the end of last year where we read it at bedtime every night for about 2 months! The illustrations, in particular, are fantastic so we love this little spin off board book with a ‘peekaboo’ theme.
The book starts by asking you who you can see on the farm. It shows you pictures from the original title and identifies the characters, but there are also lift-the-flap sections which encourage you to guess who is hiding. Little fingers can open the chicken coop to find the fat red hen, move a haystack to spot the hairy hog and find the cats behind the hedge. Look carefully and you might even spot Hefty Hugh and Lanky Len in a pile of manure!
Dear Santa is a little classic for smaller toddlers. Following in the tradition of Dear Zoo there is a little present hidden under a flap on each page – however this time it’s Santa trying to choose the perfect gift.
Will he send a toy car? No – too small!
Will he send a kite? No – too big!
What will end up being the perfect present?
Ivy loves the excitement of revealing what’s behind the flaps – and the gift on the final page might just be a tiny bit fluffy!

This is a really lovely ‘lift the flap’ book from Sophy Henn.
Join Ted as plays dress up with things he finds around the house. With a colander and a bin lid he becomes a knight. With a headscarf and a banana he becomes a jolly pirate.
Where else will his imagination take him?
The illustrations in this one are bold and gorgeous – and Ivy gets very excited lifting the flaps to see what Ted’s costume will be.
