Elena (2 years and 10 months) chose Jake's Cakes after bath time, when I came back into the room she had picked it up and was telling the story. She had only heard it once and loves it. The pictures are detailed enough for her to want to study them, but clear enough to help her with the plot.
After only one reading she said "I love this book"!
Jake (4 years) really likes the books too, and is already feeling confident to try and read some of it as he likes the repetition, the shared similarities in the words and yet the plot keeps him interested too. He was very keen to see what Clip Clop and his friends did when they had left the picnic basket at the bottom of the hill!
