Wipe-Clean Multiplying 6-7
MicahW read it aged 8
I was 8 not long ago but I love maths and work books soneven though its for ages 6 to 7 I knew I would enjoy it. I have some other workbooks by usborne which I really liked doing. I do like the wipe clean books as you can do them over again. This one comes with a wipe clean pen. Some bits were too easy for me like counting in twos number patterns, but its good to go over things so you dont forget. I enjoyed the mutliplying quiz, it has the answers at the back. My sister who is 4 could do some bits as well. At the start it had numbers 1 to 10 that she could draw over and she could do the number patterns and counting by twos. It tells you what to donon each page and there is a blank page at the back to practise things.

I did enjoy this wipe clean workbook but I found it tooneasy for me. I enjoyed the quiz at the end and the wordsearch as well. There was a good variety of things to do. I think This workbook would be nore suited to 5 and 6 year old, no older.

O found this wipe clean book too easy for me. Would be suited for no older than 6years. Most of the sums were really easy ones, multiplying by 2 5 and 10. The quiz at rhe end was the best bit as the sums were slightly harder. All the answers are in the back and it comes wkth the wipe clean pen.

This was way tpo easy for me. It didnt challenge me in anyway. For the correct age group it would be a great workbook. I did enjoy doing the quiz at the end. It has the answers so you can check how you did. My sister who is 4 did some of the easier bits of the workbook. Such as adding the objects then adding on 1 more and psirs. I do like the wipe clean books as you can do them over again

The Little Red Hen: Ladybird First Favourite Tales
I read it to AvaW aged 4
My 4 year old really enjoys thisnstory od the little red hen. She plants some corn and none of her animals friends will help her do it, tend to it and make it into bread after. But once the bread is done they all want to help her eat it but she has it to herself. This is a good bool to talk about being kind to your friends and helping them with things. The illustrations are bright and colouful and my daughter will join in with the bits she knkws that repeat on the pages.

I was looking forward to reading the book from the blurb. It was easy to read independently and the font was a good size. There were no illustrations, but that didnt matter. I liked the main character Alex and thought it was cool that he got a power , even if it was a smelly lne i. I also liked the clever goldfish Bob. The book was really funny and I really enjoyed iT

AvaW read it aged 4
My daughter picked this from.the library. We were getting books to help her learn to read and she picked this level 1 book. It is simple, with a few words on each page. She liked the pictures. Some words were too hard fpr her like frightened, but I helped her read it and there were enough simple, easy words for her to have a go.

Myn4yr old chose this book from the library. She is learning to read so she chose this from the section for the new readers. I think she needed a book with more basic words to start with as there were a lot of harder words in the book she couldnt read, such as squeaky , laughed, couldnt etc. She liked the colourful illustrations anf and enjoyed the story

My 4yr old chose this from the library to read. She has just started to learn to read. It was pretty simple, what we were looking for as a first reading book. Lots of simple words like up, sad, in, it etc. Nice colourful illustrations.

MicahW read it aged 8
I liked the set up of the book. There were bits like a comic, tables, quizzes and  drawings. It was fun to read, and I learnt new facts about football. I enjoyed doing the quizzes. The chapters were short, but the whole book was a decent length. Even if you didnt like football, there is something in this book for everyone

The Dinosaur That Pooped A Planet!
I read it to MicahW aged 8 & to AvaW aged 4
Both my children love this book. We have other books from this series also. It is funny, and I think they like it so much because its very silly. We like that it is a rhyming book, and the fun illustrations. Its a book we've had for a While, and one we read regularly.

The Gruffalo's Child Colouring Book
AvaW read it aged 4
My daughter loves colouring and we have the gruffalo book, so she liked this colouring book. There are pages to just colour, which she enjoys as she can colour it in however she likes. We have got the gruffalo book out as well so she can copy the same colours. There are also activities to do such as drawing characters, dot to dot and copying pictures. It was easy for my daughter to do independently.
