This Ladybird book has been specially planned to illustrate familiar objects which a child will enjoy recognising and naming."
Beautiful, full-page colour illustrations are accompanied by large text in a charming 'school handwriting' font on the verso. One of the highlights is a delightfully nostalgic Leyland National bus. Rear endpaper and pastedown illustrated with b&w sketches of some of the objects featured in the book.
