Book pages That's Not My Meerkat
That's Not My Meerkat
I read it to AvaW aged 3
My 3 year old got this from her nursery. I think it is aimed at younger children, maybe up to age 2. It was a board book, great for little hands. Very simple and short. There are bits on each page that you can feel, so my daughter liked that. Great for babies and young toddlers.

MicahW read it aged 7
I have never read a book by this author before, as I always think them to be girly books, and I do think this book would definitely appeal more to girls. The main characters were all girls. It was an OK story but I couldn't get into it that well. It wouldnt be the kind of book I would choose to read. I did feel sorry for Selma, even though at the start she came across as very mean, But I was glad she got to have a nice holiday with her best friend Tina.

Book pages Shopkins 2017
Shopkins 2017
I read it to AvaW aged 3
My 3yr old is mad on Shopkins, so got her this as I knew she wouldn't enjoy it, and she does like her annuals. Some bits she was a bit too young for, so the pages where you had to write things and unscramble words. She loved looking at the pages where it had the pictures of the shopkins, with the names, and it told you a bit about each character. She would point out which ones she has, or would like to get. There was a game on one page where it told you wo your shopkin bff was, by getting you to answer yes or no questions, and she really loved that. She also enjoyed the page where she could colouring in and looking at the newer shopkins. There was lots of different things to do. Great for any shopkins fan.

Star Wars Annual 2017
MicahW read it aged 7
I love Star Wars, so when I saw this in the shop I asked my mom if I could have it. I haven't had many annuals. There was a nice mix of reading and different activities to do. It had lots of things to do, which kept me entertained for ages. I wanted to do the whole book on one go, as I didn't want to put it down. There were quizzes, things to draw, wordsearch, spot the difference, and much more. I really liked reading the different facts and the game where you need a dice. This has been my favourite annual, and any Star Wars fan would love it. A big thumbs up.

10 More Ten-Minute Stories
I read it to AvaW aged 3
My daughter loves her bedtime stories, so this book was perfect for her. We haven't just read it at bedtime though. It was nice that it had stories that were new to my daughter, such as the goose girl and the tinder box, Alongside the classic stories she knew already such as Jack and the beanstalk and Goldilocks. Her favourite story was Rapunzel. The stories were the perfect length and the illustrations were lovely. It's nice that we can just pick which story we want to share, and it will be a book we read regularly.

Hilo: The Boy Who Crashed to Earth (Hilo Book 1)
MicahW read it aged 7
I really enjoyed this book, and read it really quickly as I didn't want to put it down. I really liked how it was set out like a comic. It was funny and fun to read and I like the main characters D.J and Gina and especially Hilo. The illustrations were great. The ending left you wanting more, and I asked my mom if I could have the 2nd Hilo book, which she has ordered for me and I can't wait to read.

Worst Ever School Trip
MicahW read it aged 7
I really enjoyed this book, and thought it was very funny. I read it independently, and I didn't want to stop reading it as it was so good. There were black and white illustrations throughout the book, but it would have been just as good without them, as the story itself was so good. I didn't really pay that much attention to the illustrations. The main character, Beaky was my favourite and he was very funny. I loved the fact that he couldn't lie, even though it did get him into trouble.

Dogs
I read it to AvaW aged 3
My daughter got this book from nursery. She enjoys books with animals and this one is about dogs, and she really likes dogs. More than the book itself, She liked on the first few pages before the book started, and at the end, it has pictures of different dogs and what kind of dog they are. We discussed which ones we liked and disliked, and which ones we would have as a pet. It is a simple book, and its not very long.

Thank Goodness for Bob
I read it to AvaW aged 3
I loved this book. I think it is brilliant at showing how to deal with worries that little ones might have. It had a fun tone, and my daughter thought some bits were funny, such as Max worrying that he might disappear down the plughole when he had a bath. This is a great book anyway, but would be perfect to share with any little ones who do worry quite a lot. The illustrations were great as well/ At the end of the book we talked about any worries we had, and said talking about them helps. It was nice to share this book together.

I love Lego and star wars so I was looking forward to reading this. You got a figure (Ezra) and a chopper, Which was great. They were simple to put together but on one page at the front it shows you How To build then if you need help. There was lots of different things to do such as mazes, colouring, spotting things in a picture etc, and bits to just read. The answers to all the activities were in the back so you could see after you did them if you got them right. The activities and puzzles were easy to do

Peppa Pig: Peppa's First Sleepover
I read it to AvaW aged 3
My daughter really enjoyed peppa pig, so she loved this story. This was a new story for us and an episode she hasn't seen many times on the TV. Peppa goes to her first sleepover at Zoe zebras house, with her other friends. They get up to fun things like playing the piano and a midnight feast. Daddy zebra gets woken up by the girls at the sleepover. He ends up playing them a song on the piano and singing to them, which sends everyone to sleep. My daughter enjoyed the colourful illustrations
