What they say: It’s time to say Eh-oh!
Young Teletubbies fans will love these bright and colourful storybooks that are ideal for reading and sharing together.
The world’s biggest pre-school show is back! Almost 20 years after its huge debut DHX Media are remaking this iconic TV show for a brand new generation, with its original cast of colourful characters.
What we say: Lynn: “When the two Teletubbies books (A Rainy Day and Magic Watering Can) arrived in the post, my daughter was very excited. She has just turned two and has only just discovered the Teletubbies.
As you may expect they are bright, attractive and well made. They are a good size for little ones to handle and the board books mean they are robust enough for excited little fingers to turn the pages without causing any damage!
The stories themselves are simple, combined with large, bright pictures. My daughter was enthralled, pointing at all the large simple images. She especially likes A Rainy Day which has a fair bit of repetition in the story. This meant that, by the end, she was shouting out the repeated phrase and taking great delight in it!
All in all I think these are lovely little books, perfect for a two year old. So far my daughter has dragged them round the house, out in the garden and out in the pram when we go out. They are standing up to all these trips very well and I think they are set to become firm favourites in our house. I don’t think I will have to read them many more times before I become word perfect!!”
Sam: “The first thing I should say is that these books are already a firm favourite with my two year! I didn’t quite how much she loves the Teletubbies.
We have read them everyday for the past 6 days and she quickly became familiar with the story. The characters and settings from the show are clearly recognisable with 3/4 of each double page spread being a picture to set the scene. There are not many words in the books but it reads like an episode of the Teletubbies – narrator and short sentences from the characters.
Although children will obviously be used to how he Teletubbies speak, as an adult I found it hard to read aloud in ‘Teletubby language’. The Let’s Go Up and Down book was the hardest with ‘Dipsy down dup dup’ and ‘Dipsy no need the hat’ as two examples. Overall though, these books have been a winner. “
Teletubbies books are available from many good book stores and online from Amazon.
