Go! Go! Bobo – Opposites

Children will learn their numbers quickly and confidently with the help of Basher’s 123. Each double page features a number displayed as a word and in numerals, as well as a 1-to-20 number line showing where the number fits into the counting sequence. The witty, rhythmic text reinforces number recognition and is perfect for a parent and child to share or for a new reader to enjoy alone.

In Opposites, watch the lovable (but accident-prone!) Bobo bounce through bright, bold scenes, discovering all kinds of amazing opposites – from big elephants and tiny mice to a noisy drumkit and a quiet balloon ride. The super-colourful, spot-varnished spreads are certain to attract the attention of young readers.

Go! Go! Bobo – Time 978 0 7534 3152 8

In Time, Bobo is busy again – watch him bounce through the colourful scenes, from the moment he gets up to the time he goes to bed. A big, bold clockface on each spread will help preschoolers to learn how to tell the time, and the colourful, spot-varnished spreads are sure to make Bobo a toddler favourite.
