Bookbug Book of the Month: Playtime with Ted

Playtime with Ted by Sophy Henn

ISBN: 9781408880807


Playtime, Ted! Ted isn't sitting in a box, he's whizzing along in his racing car. Broooom broooom brooom! Or digging a hole in his digger. Dig dig dig! Or exploring the oceans in his submarine. Bloop bloop bloop!

Join in the fun as Ted's imagination goes wild – lift the flaps to find out what he is doing next. Perfect for little hands, this sturdy board book celebrates the imagination and will have toddlers rolling with laughter.


'Join Ted as he’s busy playing and imagining all the things his box could be. I love the format of this book. Each page features Ted with his box. You can have a guess at what Ted is playing, before you open the whole page flap and find out. If you look closely at the pictures, there are some clues as Ted involves his other toys in his games. After you’ve read the book, you might want to find your own box and let your child play with it – who knows what adventures they’ll imagine! Children love the magic and possibility of an empty box and Ted is sure to inspire hours of fun.'

- Tracy Cooper, Early Years Programme Development Manager
