This personalised first day at school book is excellent, I was really touched when I read it and I know the parents of the child I have bought it for will be too, and it is something that they can cherish and keep and give to her when she is older.

I bought this as a present for a little girl who is very fond of Rabbits. This book was just what I was looking for in picture format and text. Little girl was absolutely thrilled when I gave it to her. So I am very pleased indeed with my purchase. Arrived very quickly too.my only criticism is... children in the UK are taught to read and write with one capital letter and then lower case letters in their name. The text in the book is a mixture of First letter capital followed by lower case, and all capitals. Rather a shame that they have done this in my opinion.however, I would still purchase again.
Great books my grandson loves them it encourages him to read fast delivery will definitely be ordering from them again

I think it’s a lovely little book and although I am pleased with it for my grandson I am slightly disappointed that the grammar doesn’t really make sense. It reads in the plural, rather than in the singular as it’s about just my grandson not grandsons Anyway I’m sure when we read it to him we can over come that.
