Parents in Touch
This book is a keeper and one that can be returned to time and time again. Every time we read it, I also learn something new!

Toppsta Reader Review
Another fantastic lift-the-flap book from Usborne. This book contains over 50 flaps for children to explore. The information is presented is both in depth and short making it engaging but not daunting. Each set of double pages contains one topic, making it a great book to dip in and out of.
