When we visit the library I always like to try and get one or two books that reflect things happening in Rosalie’s world at the time, such as the weather, a holiday or a celebration. This week we managed a double whammy, with a book that gives a nod to both Mother’s Day and Spring! It’s called Are you my mummy?
The story follows a little puppy as he meets lots of different mummies and babies, in a quest to find his own mummy.
I love the bright colourful illustrations and the peek-a-boo lift-the-flap format to reveal each animals baby. Seeing this little lamb bouncing out from behind the flap made me feel quite spring-like.
There are lots of opportunities for Rosalie to practice her animal noises as Puppy meets a sheep, a pig, a cow, a horse, a cat and of course a duck – what baby book would be complete without a duck?
…Puppy finds his mummy in the end!
