The personalised ‘Where’s My Teddy?’, K. M. Wade’s first book for newborns, is specifically designed to stimulate babies’ vision and hearing. The bold black and white pictures will capture the attention of even the youngest children while the rhythm and repetition of the story build their literacy skills.
