lla and Tom enjoy a watery day in Gina Ford's sweet, '
' board book,
, which is enhanced by Rosalinda Knightley's bright, cheery illustrations.
t first they're on the beach watching Toby the dog splash through the waves (young readers can stroke Toby's coat and feel the shell of a rock pool crab). Back home they play in their paddling pool - we touch its rubber sides and, later at bathtime, watch glistening bubbles splash, and feel a squishy sponge.
hen it's finally time for bed, Ella and Tom watch shiny raindrops '
Pitter patter, pitter patter
' on their dark window ... '
Night, night everyone.
