Time To Wash Faces! by Andrew Davenport

(9.0/10)

Time To Wash Faces! Is the third installement in the In The Night Garden series of books based on the successful children’s television series also written by Andrew Davenport.

This board book one again contains bold, bright, photographic illustrations of favourite characters from the television series and a simple and fun story. The story centres on the character of Makka Pakka, whom children will know loves to travel around the garden with his sponge and soap keeping the garden and his friends clean and tidy. Makka Pakka greets and washes the faces of several different characters before the story ends with the familiar phrase “Isn’t that a pip!’.

The simple message that washing, something that little children are often loathed to do, especially their faces, is fun and is definitely a good thing. The television series is set in the time between the end of the day and bedtime, as are the books and it is therefore quite a useful book as it can be used to reinforce your child’s daily routine.

Probably the most popular character of the entire series Makka Pakka is a gentle and caring creature and will appeal to both babies and toddlers and soon become a firm favourite.
