'A delightful story with simple rhythm which centres on a family spending the day together out and about. Strolling to the park they say hello to a neighbour, marvel at the orange bus, wave to a rubbish truck and point to the ducks waddling by. Look outside. See the Sun. Let’s go now, have some fun. Puppy dog, butterfly. Aeroplane, cloudy sky. A story that focuses on everyday experiences and surroundings providing lots of opportunity for talk between parent and child.'

The effect is that each page presents an engaging yet accessible mini mystery for the child to solve. Accordingly, the young reader’s inevitable participation in the process of discovery is ensures the book’s enjoyment. ' (Publication summary)
