It's a busy day at Hattie's house. There's a lot to do before Dad's birthday party. Hattie is being very helpful, until it's time for her afternoon nap. Hattie's not even sleepy But Mama looks tired. Very tired . . . A delightfully funny story about a little girl with big ideas, from a winning combination of creators.
This book is GORGEOUS. I fell in love with Hattie Helps Out all over again when it arrived at Beachside Bookshop For people of my, er hem, vintage, the story and illustrations have that hint of nostalgia that takes you right back to that special time when you had a little helper at home (I now have one in the shop!) and I admit I do get a bit teary, in a good way, when I read it. So this is the GO TO picture book gift for everyone who loves beautiful books to treasure for ever (Libby)
