'A delightful story with simple rhythm which centres on a family spending the day together out and about. Strolling to the park they say hello to a neighbour, marvel at the orange bus, wave to a rubbish truck and point to the ducks waddling by. Look outside. See the Sun. Let’s go now, have some fun. Puppy dog, butterfly. Aeroplane, cloudy sky. A story that focuses on everyday experiences and surroundings providing lots of opportunity for talk between parent and child.'
