Great illustrations!

Simple but important story with beautiful pictures. Received this book as a gift less than a week ago and it’s already a favourite - even if the request (twice a day!) is for Boony-Baboony!
Not many words but they matter - including the subtitle “It’s okay to be sad” according to the 3 year old!

Perfect little book

Everything is perfect. I wish it was just a little bit longer though. But its a quality product and worth having to talk to little children about feelings.

Callum Bull
Happy Baboony

Callum loves the book having read it 3 times in 24hrs; a great achievement for a 2 year old that can’t still still for 5 mins!

Corryn Webb
Perfect in every way!

I was hooked with the beautiful illustrations and colour pallet before it even arrived, but I absolutely love the topic and how it’s delivered. Opened up such great conversations with my boys, thank you!

Nice book for kids!

I really like the book and the illustrations. It’s very well made and picks up an important topic. I think it is rather for small kids since there is not so much text.
