Save the Day for Ada May Blog Tour

What do you do with a wriggling toddler during story time? Give them a wriggling book of course! We are delighted to have the very wriggly Ada May on the blog today as part of the Save the Day for Ada May blog tour running across several blogs over the next two weeks (you can find the banner at the bottom to see who else is babysitting Ada!) and we are also extremely excited to have five copies of this marvellous book to give away (more on that later!).

In this new and wonderful interactive book for tots - Save the Day for Ada May by Elizabeth Dale and Patrick Corrigan - we meet Max and his baby sister Ada May who love to go out for a walk with the buggy to feed the ducks. A lovely little trip out. Except Max gets distracted when feeding the ducks and accidentally knocks Ada May's buggy sending it heading straight for the river! This is when your little wriggling reader can join in the fun and become the hero of the story - by tipping the book so that Ada May's buggy takes a whole new path. But of course the story doesn't end there with the buggy heading straight for a dog, or towards a busy road, or Ada flying into the air and landing in the farmer's tractor trailer or the worst of all when Ada May ends up stuck in the field with the angry bull!

But as long as your little reader is there to help avert a catastrophe by tilting, shaking, flicking, shouting and blowing on the pages of the book, they can become the real hero of the story.The illustrations in this story are a huge part of the fun - the characters are truly adorable and the lovely soft colour palette is really inviting. But the real magic is that they portray the moment of peril as well as the moment that your little one (and you!) save Ada May from danger. It's such a visual and interactive story that you will feel like storytime really has come to life!

If you know a toddler who likes to make some noise or get up to some wriggling and shaking then this one is for them! This book is an invitation to have some fun! Toddlers just love these sorts of books where they feel like they are influencing the story.

As I mentioned at the beginning of the post this is a really special one as we have FIVE specially signed copies of Save the Day for Ada May to give away to five of our lucky readers/followers/your wonderful book loving bairns over on our social media - check out any of our social media feeds at 8pm this evening to find out how!  

Thanks for reading,
Kim and the bairns x

  1. What a great idea for a book. However, I hope none of my walks with BookBairn and the Wee Page Turner end up as chaotic. I also remember, as a wee boy out for a walk with my Mum, being stuck in a field with a bull. We ended up running in to a nearby burn to get away. Scary!!
