That's Not My Pony
I read it to Whitehead aged 0
I like this series of books, and haven't read this one, so got it from the library. My 5yr old also read it to my son. We put his hand on all the different textures so he could feel them, and my daughter enjoyed feeling them too. It's simple and short, great for babies and toddlers, and has nice bright pages

Loved the bright, bold colours.  Its very simple, great for babies and toddlers, and my son really liked the bright colours. This would also be a great book for teaching toddlers different animals. The mouse on the front cover is textured as well

A very simple book about bathtime. I thought the contrasting colours would appeal to my baby son, and he did like looking at the pages. Would also be great for a toddler learning to speak, as they could say the words

Book pages You're a Bad Man, Mr Gum!
You're a Bad Man, Mr Gum!
MicahW read it aged 9
I liked the illustrations, as they reminded me of the ones from Roald Dahl books. It's not the best book I have read, the story didn't have me gripped like when I normally read books, and the plot wasn't very interesting

Book pages Star Wars Maker Lab: 20 Galactic Science Projects
Star Wars Maker Lab: 20 Galactic Science Projects
MicahW read it aged 9
I love star wars, so couldn't wait to look at this book, to see what things I could make. It has a contents page, so you can skip to things you are interested in making. There is lots of variety, some things easier, that tou can do with household items, some more difficult, that you will have to buy things for. Some things I have made before, like the volcano, and there were some things I wouldn't want to make. But that's the beauty of this book, you make what you want from it. Some things I could do on my own, but some I would need help with. I have done the kyber crystals, as we had everything you needed all ready in the house. That was fun, and one I will probably do again. I also did the jabba slime, and my little sister joined in. My little sister has also done some things from the book with my mom. There is plenty to try out. I definitely want to do the light saber duel. The instructions are easy to follow, and the diagrams are very helpful. This is a book that will be used over and over again

Book pages Guinness World Records
Guinness World Records
MicahW read it aged 9
I have a few guinness world record books at home. I got this one from school, as my book of choice to take home, which I chose. I think these books are really interesting, and I learn lots of new facts. I like that theres a contents page, so I can skip to areas I'm more interested in first, like science and technology, or earth. I like the pictures of things that go along with the information, so I can see rather than have to imagine. Its a good size book, so I read bits of it each day. There are some really funny world records, and some really amazing ones. I read about things I've never heard of before, so it is an eye opening book. One you can reed over

Winnie-the-Pooh: Goodnight Pooh A bedtime peep-through book
I read it to Whitehead aged 0
I thought this was a lovely bedtime story book. Great for babies and toddlers. The toddlers can turn the pages, and tell you what they see through the peep holes. I liked the rhyming, and it flowed really well. Its a nice, thick board book, which I like for little ones, and the illustrations were lovely.

Animal Friends: Baby's First Book of Animals
I read it to Whitehead aged 0
A very simple, but effective book. Each page has a different animal on. The illustrations are colourful and each page has a bright background colour, which is appealing to little ones. It introduces different animals, and it is a rhyming text, which is enjoyable

Winnie-the-Pooh: Here Comes Pooh
I read it to Whitehead aged 0
I like winnie the pooh, which is why I chose this book from the library when I saw it. Pooh gets stuck in rabbits house, as he eats so much honey, he can't get back out of the hole. The story isn't long, and not all of the regular characters are in the story.

Little Baby Books: Bedtime
I read it to Whitehead aged 0
Nice and simple baby book about bedtime, with 3 contrasting colours on each, black white and then a different bright colour on each page. This is really effective, and my son liked looking at the colours. Each page has a different picture  of something relating to bedtime, and the word, such as books, bottle, toothbrush etc. If you were looking at it with a toddler, they could tell you what is on each page

This is a really sweet book, about a penguin that is small, but he is the biggest thing to his penguin mom. Its a lovely book to share with a baby or toddler. It is simple and bits of it repetitive, but such an effective, lovely book.

Guess How Much I Love You: Book & Baby Cards Milestone Moments Gift Set
I read it to Whitehead aged 0
I love this book, its a favourite, so I thought this set was lovely. The milestones were brilliant. I like you can write the date on the milestone cards, which you can keep and look back on then. It has all the milestones you would want, the ages, things like smiling, rolling, walking etc. This would make a brilliant present for someone that is expecting a baby

Love this short, lift the flap story. I read this to my baby boy, but my 5yr old was listening to the story too, and she enjoyed lifting the flaps. Its a nice sturdy, board book, and we enjoyed the rhymes.

Enchantimals: Best Friends Forever: Book 1
I read it to AvaW aged 5
I read this book to my 5yr old. She would read some bits herself, but she would need help with some words. I liked that there was chapters, as we didn't read it all in one go, so we knew where we read to with the chapters, as I would always read to the end of a chapter. There were some small illustrations of the characters, my daughter liked them, as she knew what they looked like then. My daughter enjoyed the story, and her favourite character was Felicity.

AvaW read it aged 5
My daughter had this as her reading book. She does like the books in this series, as she knows all the characters. She was able to confidently read this book independently. She enjoys the books from this scheme, as she cant wait to see what they are up to, and she takes her time after reading the pages to look at the illustrations.

RSPB First Book Of Minibeasts
I read it to AvaW aged 5
My daughter chose this book from school. She likes insects so when she saw the ladybird on the cover she wanted to read it. We looked at it together, and my daughter Weber through and named all the ones she knew. She was telling me the ones she had seen in our garden, and she does forest school at school, so told me the ones she had seen there. It has a good range of minibeasts with pictures, and tells you a bit about each insect. A nice book for young children if you wanted to teach them about insects, or if they wanted to find out what an insect they had seen was

My daughter had this book from school. She loves the characters from the series. My daughter read it independently, not needing much help with the harder words. It is quite a long reading book, 24 pages.My daughter loves looking at the illustrations, and she enjoyed the story. She liked reading about how they made a new go kart, and about the race
