9780007514779: Bing: Get Dressed

The first in an exciting new relaunch of Ted Dewan’s Bing books – resized and beautifully produced for the next generation of toddlers – paving the way for Bing’s TV debut in 2014.

Ted Dewan has created a series that focuses on the dynamic between toddler and parent, and that speaks to them both equally, about life as a toddler and life with a toddler. With short, repetitive texts, bold, bright artwork and appealing characters, Bing offers both parent and child an enjoyable reading experience and a simple, reassuring guiding principle – that, whatever happens, it’s just a Bing thing, a normal occurrence, and nothing to get upset about.

Getting dressed is an important life skill to learn. It’s also really difficult! It’s hard to know which bit of your body goes into which hole! Clever Bing has mastered putting on his his clothes (with a little help from his constant companion Flip), but he’s struggling with the right order. And when he’s fully dressed, uh-oh, he has an accident. Don’t worry, Bing. It’s no big thing. Just get dressed all over again! That’s the Bing thing.

Customer reviews:

“My 4 year old loved this book as a toddler and my 2 year old loves this book too. Bing is so funny and if you read it the way it’s written, it’s hilarious to kids!”

“Any toddler will love these books. My thirteen month old adores them, and brings them to me so that we can read them together. Colourful, funny…an absolute must for any baby!!”

“Initially I found Bing Bunny a little bizarre – but then I am an adult and not in the core target group…..my 2 year old absolutely adores it and has opened my eyes to Bing's charms.”

“My 28-month-old son LOVES Bing Bunny and Flop more than any other book character!!!!! Sometimes I have to read these books over and over in one setting. They have really nurtured my son's love of books. Thank-you Ted Dewan!”

“ I have been a professional child-carer for 20 years. The Ted Dewan Bing Bunny books have been a firm favourite with my under 3s. Some of their first words come from the stories.”

From the Author:

Bing Bunny is my first series of books for toddlers.

Bing was born on a boring trip home on the Northern Line of the London Underground, when I was facing another evening of reading some of the tedious toddler books my daughter was in thrall with at the time. Put simply, I was cross that the many people behind these toddler books (author, illustrator, editor, etc) expected me to endure dozens of repeated readings of their brain-numbing pablum.

Picture books for kids 4 and up often address both adults and kids. But I couldn't figure out why toddler books didn't bother. I reckoned it was tough enough being a toddler's parent, why make it worse?

The idea behind Bing was to bring the pathos, the triumph, and the tragedy of being with toddlers into each Bing Bunny book. As Tony Greenwood of Ealing Family Entertainment put it, "Bing is all about the fulcrum between parents and their toddlers".

24 pages in a 15cm book is a small space to pack in a whole adventure, but in a toddler's small world, it seems as big as life.

Since I started work on him early in 2000, Bing Bunny has gone through numerous name and colour changes, road tested on loads of toddlers, and fine-tuned to go the distance with an initial run of ten books, hopefully expanding beyond that if adults find them appealing. There are a great many secrets behind the development of Bing Bunny, many of which are better off staying secrets, but in the end, they inform his slightly anarchic attitude.

I hope that Bing Bunny will change people's attitude to the infuriating moments in their toddlers' lives. It's worked on me, especially when Helen and I were in the middle of potty training my daughter and I was often getting cross at her refusal to "try", only to then go hide under the kitchen table and pee there. Helen suggested I think of the picture of Bing Bunny when he wets himself in "Get Dressed" as a way of reacting to all the accidents.

It sounds dumb, but that picture got me on my own Road to Damascus when it came to my attitude towards parenting. I've found it easier and easier to remind myself that the little disasters are just "Bing Things", no big deal s after all.

There's a whole Bing Bunny 'scene' emerging online.The bookshop on the site will bring you back here to Amazon.
