The book fairy has been to visit again, we really do get spoilt by the lovely people at Harper Collins Children’s Books. This month we have two fabulous books which would make great Christmas presents.
Diary of a Christmas Wombat – Jackie French
We are getting so excited about Christmas in the Brown household now and MissB loves anything Christmas related so she has really enjoyed reading this lovely book before bedtime. She thinks Mothball the Wombat is really funny (and I have to agree with her!).
“Christmas from a wombat’s eye view is always going to be interesting – especially when that wombat is Mothball!”
“Christmas comes but once a year and it’s just as well for Santa’s reindeer who have to fight with Mothball for the carrots left out for them by local children. And when Mothball takes an unexpected sleigh ride, it’s not just Santa who faces the prospect of getting stuck in the chimney.!
This really is a delightful little book, the story really well through the pictures and is really easy to follow for toddlers, it definitely keeps MissB entertained and chuckling along whenever we read it (and we have read it over and over and over!). Released on the 25th October, you can buy Diary of a Christmas Wombat in most book selling places including Amazon, I have included a link to it below
Hello Kitty Annual 2013
Any Hello Kitty fan is going to absolutely love this book if they find it in their stocking on Christmas Day! MissB is still a little young to really appreciate just how good annuals are but I fondly remember getting various annuals every year for Christmas as a child. This one is just as fun packed as I remember my old annuals were
“Packed full of fun, activities and games this is the official Hello Kitty Annual, This fabulous book is filled with ideas for fun things to make and do, quizzes, puzzles and lots more! It’s the perfect companion for the year ahead”
The book includes information and advice on loads of different things from growing pretty flowers, making cupcakes, how to be a fabulous friend to even making your own perfume. If you child loves Hello Kitty then they will absolutely love this book and it really needs to find it’s way under your Christmas tree this year
The hardback annual has a RRP of £7.99 and can be found in most bookselling places, I’ve included a link to it on Amazon below Even more amazing is that it’s currently selling for the bargain price of £3.86!!
The lovely people from Harper Collins Children’s Books have recently sent MissB some lovely new books to review In this household we can never have enough books!
Come To School Too, Blue Kangaroo! – Emma Chichester Clark
Apparently this is the 8th title in this series starring Lily and her loveable soft toy Blue Kangaroo, I admit I’ve not come across them before but I’ll certainly be keeping an eye out for them in the future!
When Lily starts a new school she asks Blue Kangaroo to come too. Lily thinks Blue Kangaroo is worried about going, but secretly, he can’t wait to explore and try new things – but he has to spend the first day watching from the windowsill. Then – disaster! Lily leaves him behind! But perhaps now he can have a go at all the fun things children do at school…
This book would be perfect for any child starting school in September, obviously MissB is a little young for that but we’ve had similar experiences with her taking her toys to nursery and her poor Mr Zebra once had to spend the weekend there and so she could really relate to the book
The illustrations are lovely and the story is great for letting children know about school and how much fun it can be. MissB’s daddy is a teacher and so now she thinks he gets to play all day lol
Come to School Too, Blue Kangaroo! Was published on the 2nd August with a RRP of £10.99 for the hardback version and can be purchased in most bookshops, I’ve included a link to it on Amazon below.
Hello Kitty Numbers, Letters & Learning To Write Sticker Books
Now there is nothing MissB loves more at the moment than anything with stickers in it and so these books were an immediate hit with her
Hello Kitty helps children take the next step in getting ready for school in these simple-to-follow guides to starting to write and learning the alphabet and numbers!
MissB is still a little young for learning to write but we’ve been spending lots of time with her teaching numbers and letters. These books are lovely in that there are lots of fun activities to work through whilst helping them to develop early years literacy skills. Content is written by an education expert and linked to the Early Years Foundation Stage.
Each of the three books has an RRP of £4.99 and again can be purchased in most bookshops, I’ve included links to them on Amazon below and also to the Collins My First Hello Kitty Dictionary which is aimed at 5-7 year olds (we weren’t sent this to review but I’ll be keeping an eye out for it in a couple of years!)
