Book of the Month: I’m the Driver

I’m the Driver

Illustrated by David Semple
Age 2+

Jump into the driver’s seat and enter a world of imaginative play with the new I’m the Driver series.

Your child can get behind the wheel of their favourite vehicles in an immersive experience that puts them in charge to build their self-confidence, and encourages them to follow instructions and develop their problem-solving and teamwork skills.

There are also plenty of opportunities to practise key early learning skills throughout the story, including counting, and recognition of colours, shapes, and numbers. Your child is sure to have lots of fun while they’re learning as they make their own sound effects, act out real-life situations and spot their favourite vehicles.
