We’ve already had Colours, Things That Go, Weather, Numbers and Animals from Floris Books. Now we have Scottish Opposites.
Kate McLelland is a fabulous illustrator and printmaker who has produced a series of Scottish themed board books for small children.
The illustrations are brilliantly simple and recognisable and there’s only one word on each page so no story line other than, â€œThe fox is faster than the snailâ€ â€“ which is quite enough for babies who are just interested in exercising their fingers turning pages.
I’ve questioned the Scottish theme previously but this one is, in my opinion, the most appropriate. I particularly like ‘over’ and ‘under’ the
iconic Forth Rail Bridge.
Nice and robust to survive disrespecting toy boxes, the books are priced at Â£5.99.
