Tom goes on a little adventure with his favourite teddy, Tilly. In a paper boat they sail away past a myriad of familiar looking creatures and toys, who all pop in to make it a fabulous adventure indeed.
Jedda Robaard’s picture book embraces the wonderful imagination, a quality so deeply rooted in many childhood experiences. She shows how the simplest things can actually be the most fulfilling. Bath time.
Robaard’s water colours are soft and inviting, pulling young minds into the magic of this beautifully simple story. I love the final pages, which provide simple step by step instructions on ‘How to make a little boat’. Ten steps, and you’ll have your own paper boat, ready for your own adventures! Perfect.
Tom and Tilly is a great picture book for those who love bath time, and may well work out well for any who need a little persuasion.
