Book pages The Dinosaur That Pooped The Bed
The Dinosaur That Pooped The Bed
MicahW read it aged 6
I have the other 'dinosaur that pooped' books, and I find them really funny, so I knew this one would be the same. In this book, Danny's room was a real mess so he gets the dinosaur to eat the mess in his room so he doesn't have to tidy it. The dinsour gets that fat they end up trapped in the bedroom, until he does a big poop. This silly book makes me laugh, and I like the rhymes. The illustrations are great and detailed.

Book pages Dinosaurs Love Underpants
Dinosaurs Love Underpants
MicahW read it aged 6
This book from the underpants series, features dinsoaurs. There ends up being a pants war between the dinosaurs for their very own pair of prehistoric pants, which they first saw the cave men in. A silly, funny, rhyming story.The illustrations are nice, colourful and amusing. It was easy for me to read on my own; a very entertaining book.

Book pages The Usborne Amazing Activity Book
The Usborne Amazing Activity Book
MicahW read it aged 6
This really is an amazing activity book, as the titles suggests, suitable for girls or boys aged 6+. There is so much to do, plenty of variety. There are stickers, puzzles, codes to crack, games to play, adventures to write, things to draw, etc. It keeps me occupied and entertained for ages, and I can get on with the activities independently. My favourite bits in the book are spot the difference, cracking the codes and how to make a bubbling potion. I would recommend this to anyone my age, and I give it a big thumbs up.

Book pages The Princess and the Wizard
The Princess and the Wizard
I read it to AvaW aged 2
I got this book for my daughter as I had previously bought her one of the other princess stories by Julia Donaldson; princess mirrorbelle & the dragon pox book and she loved it. She enjoyed this story just as much. Princess Eliza has a birthday party, and because she didn't invite the evil wizard he captures her and locks her in a cellar. With her Fairy Godmothers help, will princess Eliza escape? There is glitter on every page, which my daughter can't get enough of. The story kept my 2year olds attention, and its not a short story. It is well written, with lovely rhymes and introduces days of the week. A very magical book

Book pages Tricking the Tooth Fairy: Book 3
Tricking the Tooth Fairy: Book 3
MicahW read it aged 6
I love horrid Henry books, they are so funny, and this one was no different. In this book Peter's tooth falls out and Henry tries to steal it so he can get the money from the tooth fairy. It was easy to read on my own, I read it quite quickly as I enjoyed it and didn't want to put it down. I like it has short chapters, so if I do stop reading it I can read to the end of a chapter and know where I will be starting next time. There are black and white illustrations throughout the book. Any horrid Henry fan will love this laugh out loud book.

Book pages Moody Margaret Strikes Back
Moody Margaret Strikes Back
MicahW read it aged 6
Moody Margaret forms a secret club for the girls where she is the boss and they try to get their own back on Henry. There ends up being a horrid show down, as Henry isn't going to let anyone, let alone a girl get the better of him. There are black and white illustrations throughout, and it is packed full of dares and jokes. It's not a very long book, so it's quite a quick read and it's very silly and funny. I liked the dares the best, but they won't be any I will be trying out.

Book pages One Day on Our Blue Planet 2: In the Antarctic
One Day on Our Blue Planet 2: In the Antarctic
I read it to AvaW aged 2
I thought this was a really lovely book; very enjoyable. The story follows the Adelie penguin chick as she leaves her family and explores the Antarctic ocean. I loved that it was educational, learnt lot of things about penguins, the Antarctic and sea creatures, so it would be a great book for an older child as well, around 6 years old, but its also perfect for younger ones as it has a great narrative. My daughter liked the pages in the front and the back of the book. They named the creatures and animals you can see in the Antarctic, above and below the ice. She liked me telling her the names of the different animals, birds, fish, etc. I learnt new things whilst reading it as well. Loved the illustrations. You can also get another book in the series: 'One day on our blue planet in the Savannah', which features a lion cub.

Book pages Peppa Pig: ABC with Peppa
Peppa Pig: ABC with Peppa
I read it to AvaW aged 2
A great alphabet book. My daughter is very interested in this book as it features Peppa and the other characters. I liked that each letter of the alphabet was shown in lower and upper case. Bright colours on each page, a very colourful book. This is great for little ones, as youca show them the pictures so they can learn what things are, such as apple, ball etc. Then it is great for slightly older children, around 2years old to actually learn the alphabet and recognise letters, etc. My daughter loves telling me what each item next to the letters are, and is now using the book to try and say what the letter is that the item starts with, so its been very helpful in helping her learn. You can also get a Peppa pig numbers book and colours book.

Book pages How to be a Space Explorer: Your Out-of-this-World Adventure
How to be a Space Explorer: Your Out-of-this-World Adventure
MicahW read it aged 6
This was a fun, cool book. I love things about space, the solar system etc, so I was really pleased and excited to be reading this. It's jam packed full of facts and interesting things, so I learnt a lot of new things. There are plenty of photographs and colourful illustrations throughout. It covered a variety of topics such as stars, planets, space travel etc, but I really enjoyed reading about the space suits and looking at the chart showing the different type of stars. I liked how it addressed the reader as if they were going to travel to space. It's great for adults as well, my parents enjoyed reading it too, and my little sister looked at the pictures.  There were lots of things we could discuss from the book, and it really gets your imagination going, thinking about what it would be like to travel to space. I would definitely recommend this, it's a very enjoyable book.

Book pages LEGO (R) Star Wars Minifigures Ultimate Sticker Collection
LEGO (R) Star Wars Minifigures Ultimate Sticker Collection
MicahW read it aged 6
This is a great sticker book any star wars/lego fan will love. It comes with lots of stickers; over 1000. You stick the stickers in the correct place in the book, then there are stickers left over to do what you want with. It keeps me entertained for ages, and I enjoy looking at the charcaters and seeing whether I have those star wars lego characters in my own collection. The stickers are easy to peel. I like you get facts about the characters and I learnt new ones.
