Hello lovelies! Today I have another awesome children’s book to share with you plus a giveaway consisting of 5 copies of this fine book! Please note that the giveaway is UK only and will be taking place on my own Twitter page.
Dylan is a joyous new character who uses playing and fun to help toddlers explore and understand their world. Today Dylan is playing at being a doctor. He dashes about looking after all of his friends: Purple Puss, Jolly Otter and Titchy Chick. But who will look after poor, tired Doctor Dylan? All his friends, of course! Look out for Dylan’s friend, Dotty Bug, on every page, as she encourages readers to join in with the story.
In this new adventure from Dylan, he is a doctor and patient after patient comes his way; Purple Puss, Jolly Otter and Titchy Chick all of his friends are well looked after thanks to Dylan. Then when Dylan himself is tired out from looking after everyone, all of his friends come to look after Dylan to help him rest.
I love that this series puts Dylan into different roles, and explores all the different pieces of equipment he needs to make all of his friends better. Its a great way for children to learn the different jobs and roles in society and I feel that these kind of stories inspire children’s own dreams of what they want to do when they’re older.
Even more importantly this book teaches children that we all need looking after in many different ways, and that helping others is a wonderful thing to do that makes yourself feel helpful.
