As a child I can remember loving rub down transfer books, but I haven’t seen one for a long time. It’s certainly not something that my 7-year-old has ever seen before. When Usborne Publishing contacted me about the recently published The Wild Garden, it brought back so many memories from my childhood. I couldn’t wait to see the book for myself and introduce Monkey to the concept of rub down transfer books.
The Wild Garden is the sort of book that you can enjoy completing alone or as a shared family activity (recommended for children aged 5 years and over). It would make a lovely birthday or Mother’s Day present too in my opinion. We all need to take some time out of our busy lives at some point and it’s been wonderful to immerse ourselves in this activity over the last few days.
The 24 page books comes with some lovely transfer sheets full of flowers, butterflies, frogs and other mini beasts. The transfer sheets are stored in an envelope inside the front cover of The Wild Garden.
