Press Reviews

'Ally Bally Bee is a great book to read to toddlers and a lovely way to engage with the re-telling of this popular Scottish rhyme.'


-- Emma Dunn, The Scotsman


'...a new board book for wee ones, each page having a surprise hidden under a flap -- a device just adored by inquisitive fingers. Kathryn Selbert's illustrations are charmingly simple, if not particularly Scottish (she is American) and my granddaughter loves it. Not so sure about my singing though...'


-- Lothian Life


'It's a lovely edition, with lift the flaps on each page to further reveal the next scene of the story or to show you where the sweeties are hiding. The Wee Page Turner loves this - he's already very familiar with the song as I have been singing it to him since he was born - but he can now lift the flaps in the book too, making it a more engaging book for him to play with on his own. But mostly he enjoys reading (or singing) it on his ''mammy's knee''. A perfect baby book for bairns!'
