Where’s Mr Puffin? is a super little book for our little ones in Nursery, especially with the link to our RSPB birdwatch week. So many of the children laughed and laughed at the mirror image at the end of the book. Our children learning English could join in with the repeating of the simple, repetitive sentences. Always a good strategy for learning a new language.
The board book is sturdy and the felt flaps look as if they will stand the test of time and usage. S (aged 3) said he wanted to learn some other bird names after reading this book. H (aged 3) wanted to find out more about puffins. Recommended for age 1+.
