This is a delightful book about firsts from the grande dame of
picture books, Shirley Hughes, and an excellent gift for a toddler.
All accompanied, of course, by her gorgeous, squeezable, kissable,
chubby children. * The Times, Best Books of the Year 2019 *
All Around Me: A First Book of Childhood brings together some of her earlier books for tinies, introducing counting and shapes and noises. * Spectator *
