Winnie-the-Pooh is an old favourite and this book is created true to the classic form. It has a gentle pace and spacious illustrations. The illustrations are gorgeous with a rounded edges and soft colours used throughout.

Hide and Peek is a board book for those aged 1+ with unfolding flaps on every double spread. Children are to find the four friends in the forest. There is only one sentence to read on each double spread allowing the child to take the story and graphics wherever they choose. They could race through and find every friend or they can saunter through creating stories to go with the illustrations.

The animals they are seeking are all in the same repeated, predictable place allowing children to feel confident with this book. The materials are durable so I can leave it with my three year old and be confident that it will not be in shreds when I return. If you like the Hundred Acre wood and its characters this is certainly one to get.
