Annotation

Each of the 12 double page spreads in this board book has a story to tell, such as sharing an object, taking turns, sharing space, cheering others up when needed. The bold, vibrant and busy illustrations feature cultural diversity in a natural way with children and adults all offering support of one kind or another to each other. Some unusual helping acts are included such as watering plants thus adding opportunities to talk about what the images are ‘saying’.
