Book pages The Last Chip
The Last Chip
I read it to fifebookboy aged 6
This is a lovely book about struggling when hungry and being kind. Percy the pigeon is starving and looks everywhere for food, but other birds always seem to get there before him. Eventually he finds something to eat where he was least expecting it. The illustrations in this book are lovely and 10% of the profits go towards food banks. We know of many pigeons and seagulls that like to steal food so it was interesting to read about them from the other side, maybe they really are hungry rather than being pests!

The Big Book of Bugs
I read it to fifebookboy aged 6
We bought this book last week and it's a fantastic introduction for learning about bugs. It's divided up into different types of bugs such as beetles, ants, termites, snails and stick insects. There are also spreads on spotting bugs and a bug family tree, as well as bugs in the garden. The contents page is clear and there is a nice index and glossary. The illustrations are gorgeous and appealing. The information is quite simple but means that a child can easily read it themselves without feeling overwhelmed. You can also use it as a search and find book. We really want to read more from this author and illustrator!

Book pages How to Be an Engineer
How to Be an Engineer
I read it to fifebookboy aged 6
I was really pleased to have won this book and we were not disappointed when it arrived. This is a fantastic book with loads of engineering activities and experiments to do, we have just ordered some cocktail sticks and gumdrops in our online shop to make some different types of constructions. The book also has profiles of engineers from history, both male and female. I felt that the language used and length of text on each spread is pitched perfectly at my six year old, who is a fluent reader but doesn't always have the confidence when faced with large amounts of text. The illustrations and photography are bright, colourful and appealing. We are planning on working our way through all the activities.
