Ella and Tom enjoy a watery day in Gina Ford's sweet, 'shimmering touchy-feely' board book, Splash! Splash!, which is enhanced by Rosalinda Knightley's bright, cheery illustrations.

At 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.

When it's finally time for bed, Ella and Tom watch shiny raindrops 'Pitter patter, pitter patter' on their dark window ... 'Night, night everyone.'
