A delightful story with simple rhythm which centres on a family spending the day together out and about. Strolling to the park they say hello to a neighbour, marvel at the orange bus, wave to a rubbish truck and point to the ducks waddling by. Look outside. See the Sun. Let’s go now, have some fun. Puppy dog, butterfly. Aeroplane, cloudy sky. A story that focuses on everyday experiences and surroundings providing lots of opportunity for talk between parent and child.
A sweet, gentle rhyming tale with lots of everyday objects for children to discover.
The wordless centre spread expands the story as we see the family reunited to return home together.
The simplicity of the illustrations perfectly reflects and expand on the text.
A charming book to which even the youngest of toddlers will relate.
