Boo Roo and Tigger Too’s thoughts…
Roo being a sensitive soul was a little sad to hear that Hattie Peck only ever had one egg and it never hatched, but I reassured her and we continued with the story and it was lovely to see Roo’s face light up as she listened to how Hattie had decided to find all the forgotten eggs in the world.
Whilst the story is a charming one I do feel that it has a hidden meaning, in that just because Hattie wasn’t able to have her own eggs she loved all the forgotten eggs and this in turn made her very happy. It is one that Roo and Tigger probably won’t understand until they are older but hopefully they will remember this story when they come across life’s lessons.
Priced with a RRP of £6.99 it is a charming book with some beautiful illustrations that is well worth the price tag.
