Junior Book Club Linky 25th October 2012

Welcome to the ninth MotherGeek #JuniorBookClub Linky!
Feel free to join in by adding your own links.
You can find the linky at the bottom of the page, after my review of the week.

This week, I am reviewing Pip and Posy – The Snowy Day. It is written and illustrated by Axel Scheffler (The artist behind the Gruffalo)!

The book is hardback, and has an RRP of £7.99. It has a padded cover, and feels really thick to hold – perfect for small hands. The book pages are the sort of glossy, thick paper you’d expect from a hardback children’s book.

The story itself is a fun, Winter adventure. The images really help to bring the story to life – they are more likely to capture your child’s interest than the story by itself, in my opinion. The story doesn’t rhyme, and my 16 Month old son soon lost interest in it.

Pip and Posy – The Snowy Day is aimed at children aged 2 and over. It is a good story to build the excitement of the “First snow” if your child enjoys stories which don’t rhyme. (Sam is a bit set in his ways now, and seems to prefer a rhyming story – possibly because I read them with a little more animation)?!

All told, I do like this book. It is a good size – 220 x 220mm and at 32 pages long (including end covers) it is a good length for a daytime story.

I personally would recommend this book to parents of kids aged 3+

This is not a sponsored post. I was sent the book to review, but all words and thoughts are my own.
