First Favourite Stories Pack

A beautiful board book collection for tots to treasure, featuring four much-loved children’s classics from major authors and illustrators. Eric Carle’s multi-sensory The Very Busy Spider follows a little spider quietly spinning her web, as a textured web set into the page allows children to feel and see the pictures. Guess How Much I Love You, in which two hares try to express their love for one another, is another firm favourite, having sold over 18 million copies worldwide. The Kiss That Missed is the charming story of a brave knight’s quest to capture a stray bedtime kiss, while Peepo allows readers to peep through die-cut holes to see what happens on the next page. All these timeless stories have been stunningly illustrated for a reading experience that parents and children will cherish.
