Lottie Dolls: Lottie Solves a Mystery
I read it to AvaW aged 4
My daughter enjoyed this book. We read a chapter each night. She liked Lottie and her friends, and her dog  and enjoyed the adventure of the story. She wasn't that taken with the illustrations as they were black and white. My daughter looked forward to reading it every night before bedtime. The font was quite big, so would be grest for new readers.

Dougal Daley, it's Not My Fault!
MicahW read it aged 8
I thought this was a funny boomk. Dougsl is writing his will because of the creature in the shed that is after him. It was fun to read and packed full of action and adventure. I liked the little doodles throughout the book, and how bits of the book were written in Dougals handwriting. It has short chapters and I really liked Dougals character; he was dramatic but likeable. It was easy to read independently, an enjoyable read.

I read it to MicahW aged 8 & to AvaW aged 4
Both my children really liked this interactive book. We have had one like this in the past, a dinosaur one that was the same, so.I knew they would enjoy it. My eldest enjoyed reading the facts as well as the interactive bits and my youngest enjoyed lookong at thr pictures. The app was easy to download to an apple ipad, and it was free which was great. The app is also easy to use.They both really enjoyed the interactive bits, where the bugs would come to life on the book and you could make it walk around the living room, which was pretty cool. They were both disappointed that they couldnt do the battles in interactive mode, as you needed 2 different devices with the app on and we only had the 1. This is a book they will use frequently and have looked at a lot since theyve had it.

Super Creepy Camp
MicahW read it aged 8
I enjoyed reading this book independently. I thought it was funny, and I enjoyed it as much at the other Beaky Malone book I have read previously. Beaky and some other pupils, are up against another school in a debate, quiz and camp overnight in the woods with them. 
There is lots of drama and silliness, which made me laugh. He is still getting in trouble in this book, as he hasnt got his lie telling ability back. I thought the bit where Beaky had to spell some really hard words in the quiz, was really funny

MicahW read it aged 8
Holly's dad is an explorer, and poor Holly is stuck at home with her mum, her baby brother and the dog. Holly also isnt happy as she finds out her dad is on a new expedition will miss her 10th birthday. Her dad has planned a special treasure hunt, just for her, and she has ten days to complete ten tasks, which are scary and silly. I really enjoyed reading it, and it was very exciting in parts. It was easy to read on my own, and I really liked Holly's character. There is a 2nd book to this which I would really like to read.

Bobbo Goes To School
I read it to AvaW aged 4
My daughter chose this book, and it was really fitting as she starts school im September. Lily ends up throwing her teddy Bobbo on top of a school bus, and he ends up on an adventure. At school the children looks after him and he ends up seeing all the nice and fun things you dl at school. This was a lovely book to share with my daughter who is startong school soon. We discussed things they did in the book, that she will be doing at school : playing, writing, listening to stories etc. Bobbo was returned to LIly at the end, so it was a happy ending.

Elephant in a Rowboat
I read it to AvaW aged 4
My daughter chose this book from the library as she thought the cover was funny, with an elephant in a little boat. Little elephant is stuck in a rowboat, in the middle of a lake, and lots of people arrive to try and rescue him. My daughter enjoyed all the different things the people tried to do to rescue him, some of them were funny.

Everybunny Dance
I read it to AvaW aged 4
My daughter was given this book when we visited rhe library. They were free books they had been sent by booktrust. It is only a little book, a short story. Lots of bunnys are dancing, clapping, singing and playing instruments. A fox turns up so they all run off. They hide in a hole, staying very still and watching the fox. the fox starts dancing, then plays the clarinet. He is sad as hes lonely. All the bunnys come out and give him clap and cheer, rhen everyday from then they play together. A nice little story my daughter enjoyed. Its the perfect size for little hands.

Tabby McTat
I read it to AvaW aged 4
My daughter enjoyed this book, she is a big fan of Julia Donaldsons books anyway. Tabby Mctat is the story of a busker's cat. It is a rhyming text, which we liked, and it was a nice length story for young ones. The illustations were detailed and the lots of colours really appealed to my daughter.

Little Monster's Day Out with Dad
I read it to AvaW aged 4
We love Pippa Goodhart and Nick Sharratt books, so as soon as I saw this I got it for my daughter as we didn't have it already. Little monster and his dad are supposed to be going to the fair, but their car breaks down
 My daughter loved the bright, colourful illustrations, and also loved the lift the flaps. It is a simple book, but a nice book, with a nice surprise at the end for little monster.

Wipe-Clean Garden Activities
I read it to AvaW aged 4
I got this for my daughtee, as she enjoys her activity books, and thw wipe clean ones are brilliant as she can do them over again. Some.of the activities I had to tell her what she had to do, if it wasn't obvious, due to her only being 4 and not able to read properly. There were lots of different activites; drawing things, mazes, find the differences etc. It keeps my daughter entertained when she is using it, she really enjoys it. I would say this would be great for 3year olds and over. It helps with skills such as counting and drawing.

Hatchimals: Magical Adventures Sticker Activity Book
I read it to AvaW aged 4
My daughter loves hatchimals and stickers, so I knew she would really enjoy this sticker activity book. I don't think you would have to be a hatchimal fan to enjoy this book either. There were different things to do, such as the name game, dot to dot, countung activites. The answers to the puzzles were in the back. My daughter liked adding the stickers provided to the picture scenes . She needed my help for the wordsearch. She really enjoyed the dot to dot. At the back there was a page where you could cut out some hatchimal collegtibles cards to keep. Which had the pictures, names and facts about them.
