Outstanding -

I wasn't expecting this much from these books, I thought they would be useful and nice as the price was so good I bought one set for my setting (I'm a childminder and mum) and one for a nursery I know.

The books are so descriptive, so great to build vocabulary through lovely poems and also for the child's imagination they transport the child to 'summer' they also teach the child the books subject whilst holding concentration and the illustrations are gorgeous. Well worth the money.

Amazing -

Well. first, the service was excellent. The package arrived in 24 hours! Offer is spectacular for what you receive and Shirley Hughes is amazzzzzing. Such beautiful illustrations. Yes, the stories can be old-fashioned but that is totally part of their charm. Beautiful books that my daughter can learn from and again this offer is amazing - it's a must for Shirley Hughes fans.

I am reading my daughter these books that I read my eldest, now adult, daughter (20months/21 years) that I was also read. Love it! And the bag... lovely wee keepsake. Amazing value, amazing price.

Untouched -

I'm from the older generation but work with preschool children. Many popular titles have been newly illustrated but I would weep if Shirley Hughes' fabulously textural hand drawings were lost to new readers. With ABC's, seasons and more in this collection, these books will please all preschoolers.

Wonderful classics -

These were our family's favourite books when our two daughters were small. I still have the originals even though they are now both 30+. So delighted to find them back in print and at such a good price.

They make excellent presents for our great nieces and nephews. Shirley Hughes' illustrations are unrivalled and the text in the Nursery Collection is as rhythmic as the more modern Julia Donaldson books.
