If You’re Happy and
You Know It…
Illustrated by Annie Kubler
Reviewed by Debbie Talbot
I was very happy to receive this babies board book for review. Brightly coloured and beautifully illustrated by Annie Kubler. On each page there is a large picture and a few words from the song so many of us learnt as a child. My boys love looking at the pictures and giggling while I sing to them. Sometimes they copy the actions I am doing.
If You’re Happy and You Know It… has actions perfectly suited to babies and small children, for example rattle and shake or push the blocks. The book is hardy and can be wipe down (very handy with messy babies). It is just the right length to prevent boredom. On the back of the book it gives you the musical notes to play the song. This is great for older children or musical parents.
Overall, myself and my twin boys love this book. It is fun and colourful. My 8 year old daughter enjoys singing the song or reading the words while showing the pictures to the boys. It has a high educational value and I hope that eventually Tom & Jack will pick up some of the words as well as some of the actions.
Excellent quality and excellent value.
