Molly's Moon Mission
Author: Duncan Beedie Illustrator: Duncan Beedie
Given that my daughter loves the moon she wasn't quite as taken with this book as I had expected. It is well written, with a nice story to entertain older children as well as younger ones (it links a little to the moon landings). The pictures are good, in a sort of comic strip style. I think it might be one to put on the shelf and bring back out when she's a little older.

Stick Man
Author: Julia Donaldson Illustrator: Axel Scheffler
Lovely edition of this book - nice that it is a baord book so I can leave it with my daughter knowing she won't demolish it! Even thought it's relatively small, the text is still easy to read (although woudl be tricky for an early reader I think). It's a super way to learn about the different uses of wood (or rather sticks) with a happy ending. I think my daughter was most happy about the fact that Santa made an appearance! Definitely a favourite.

Tough Trucks
Author: Tony Mitton Illustrator: Ant Parker
Great way to introduce different types of trucks. I'll be honest, I didn't think there were so many! Lots of good facts told through ryhme and pictures. We have several in this series which are all asked for regularly by my daughter.

Roaring Rockets
Author: Tony Mitton Illustrator: Ant Parker
Great book on space! It contains facts told through rhyme which is great for younger kids. My daughter does slightly prefer Peep Inside Space as there are flaps to lift, but she still sits through this book and asks for it off the bookshelf.

Amazing Machines: Terrific Trains
Author: Tony Mitton Illustrator: Ant Parker
My daughter loves this series. She is mad about vehicles, and it's great to have a factual book told through ryhme, which caters for a younger audience. It describes different types of train, and railway features, and I think it's a great way to learn!
