        I bought this book for my 2 year old but realised when i got it that it was too advanced to read to her, however she does like the pictures and they are of everyday items which she finds interesting. The book will grow with her which is fine by me!

          My 3 year-old daughter who was born in Brisbane (we returned to the UK when she was 9 months) loves this book. We use it to remind her of her birthplace and plan our return visits. A lovely book.
