Reviews

'These are perfect first word primers for Scottish bairns packed full of lovely Scottish characters, scenes and creatures.'
-- BookBairn blog

'Kate McLelland's choice of unique Scottish animals and colorful illustrations are simple and very visually satisfying. By including the Highland cattle, red squirrel and puffin, she connects to Scottish heritage and brings these specifically situated animals... alive, along with more universal animals.'
-- Diane Neylon, Youth Services Book Review
