"I’m so proud of local Brisbane author Jacqui for creating this delightful book that I’ve been able to give to my daughter Octavia. The things I loved most about it are that it’s so much more than just a beautifully illustrated read, it’s also educational, in an entertaining way with practical elements to keep little, growing minds busy and teach them new skills. I encourage everyone, whether a birthday is coming up or just a surprise, to have this book on hand as the perfect present."
