FIVE, FOUR, THREE, TWO, ONE ...BLAST OFF! Monkey and Bird can't sleep, so they set off on a magical journey! Join them as they count their way across the moon, past five orange meteors, four pink alien hands, three green moon buggies, two yellow ladders and one big red spaceship button that will zoom zoom zoom them all the way home. Learn to count with Monkey and Bird, two bright, bold characters that breathe new life into this ever popular children's song. Toddlers and young children will delight in the familiar rhyme, the vibrant artwork and enjoy counting the objects on every page. With stunning, screen printed artwork and a jacketed hardback, this is a carefully conceived and beautifully produced book - the perfect gift for any young child, and any adult with an eye for colour and design.
Zoom zoom zoom, we're going to the moon - a colourful countdown to bedtime!
I thought that the illustrations and vivid colours in this book were absolutely stunning. It is a perfect book to read with little ones who don't think they are quite ready to go to sleep. bookbabblers.co.uk
