Book Review

Matlilda has spent ages turning the cut out pages back and forth seeing how the pictures interact

‘You are my happiness’ is a gorgeous little board book that Matilda has loved being read. She has also loved looking through it herself, there are beautiful cut out pages that give you a glimpse of the next page.

Matilda particularly enjoys spotting the butterflies and rainbow and she has spent ages turning the cut out pages back and forth seeing how the pictures interact.

The pictures are are all beautifully illustrated and there is a sweet simple rhyming story about a mother’s love for her baba.

This is a strong board book which is perfect for enthusiastic toddlers and has lots to engage and enjoy with their mummy.
