They watch TV and write and draw books. They have the best life.
A sweet set of Little Hands Trust books by Nikli Daly for toddlers that explain concepts such as colours, shapes and textures in a simple and accessible way. Tom was immediately transfixed and looked at each page carefully making little noises when he saw the instruments.
