A couple of great kids books

Minnie Blooming Bows - Disney


Molly is a great fan is Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Her bedroom wallpaper is covered in Mickey and Minnie and her duvet is of Minnie Mouse so she has a great association of them. So when we got this book as a birthday present I just knew that she would love it.

Minnie's neices, Millie and Melody, have visited Minnie at her work dressed up in their pageant dressing up costumes.

Throughout the visit they petals that make up their costume start to fall off, tearing their costumes apart and leaving them upset as they think they can not take part in the school's Posy Pagent.

Minnie is left with the task of saving the day but will she manage?

A great wee book for Molly to enjoy right now as she recognises the characters and will be one she can continue reading as she gets older and understand the story.

Dear Zoo - Rod Campbell


Dear Zoo is a much loved book, one that almost every child seems to enjoy and Molly loved this book. Another great birthday present.

It has some great flaps to open, which Molly loves, to unveil the animal that the zoo has sent.

I love this because it can be used to teach so much, lifting up, down, to the side. It teaches how things can be too tall, or too fierce.

There are also a number of animals that are sent that allows the reader to learn about animals, what they look like and ,with some added sound effects, how they sound too.

Molly doesn't often sit through the reading of a book and normally gets some bedtime stories read to her but this is one that she is happy to sit on the sofa and to read. Much of that is the flaps, as she does tend to love a flap book, but it is also the animals!

  5. We've got two copies of Dear Zoo and it's always been one of Elsa's favourites. She also likes Dear Santa and the Dear Zoo mini board books too, which are things like colours, pets etc.

  13. Lift and flaps are the main books we read at the moment as it means she will actually sit still and pay attention.

  14. We did not plan to introduce Molly to Mickey but when we were on holiday she saw a mickey stuffed toy in the shop and squealed in delight. We left it but when she saw another one she had the same reaction so that was that she became a mickey fan. She chose it so she gets to like it :)

  18. I love Dear Zoo, I bought it my kids last year after going to Chester Zoo for the day and instead of buying them a token gift of rubbish that will end up in the bin I bought them this book. We read it very regularly and they read it in school but in Welsh too which is great!

  19. Aww that's good they do a Welsh book. I might look and se eif they have a Scottish version as they do with The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom.
