Zeki is never daunted by new experiences. Daddy and Mummy prepare him well, so he’s excited to show the doctor all the things he can do by himself now he’s a big boy: drinking from a cup; standing; clapping; playing; eating and being ever so brave. He well deserves the book and sticker he gets at the end for being such a good boy!
I think this book is brilliant and we are all pleased to have been introduced to Zeki. It is a book that explores new experiences in a very inviting and simple way, embracing the diverse world in which we live in.
This new addition to the inclusive Zeki series marks developmental milestones for toddlers of Zeki’s age, such as drinking and eating independently. It is an ideal book to share with little ones of the same age, whether by parents, carers, nurseries or health practitioners.
A warm and happy picture book that shows us a loving black family experiencing normal everyday happenings in the life of any family with young children. An excellent book for families and for surgery waiting rooms – good for toddler groups as well.
