Book Review:

First, just let me say that the characters in this book are absolutely adorable. I read the series of books to my two year old first. He just loved the illustrations. He quickly learned the names of the characters that are shown in multiple books and he enjoyed pointing out the lizard and repeating it’s name whenever it appeared. Every morning he grabs the entire box of books and walks around the house asking me to read “all” of them to him.

My oldest son just turned six. He has a late October birthday so he started kindergarten in the September, but he is already reading at a first grade level. He enjoyed reading these books out loud. He had no problem parsing out the words and I caught him reading to my youngest on more than one occasion. Sometimes the kids wake before I do and I found them snuggled up on the couch a number of times reading together. My youngest would hand a book to my oldest and my oldest would read each book from start to finish.

Both of my children loved the Aquarium book the best. That book incorporates counting, which both my two year old and six year old love to do. On each page the kids see new sea creatures and count all of the creatures in the tanks. I found them reading that book more often than any other.

Because these books were not written in the United States my son did find a few of the words confusing. In the US we use the word “vacation” rather than “holiday.” It took just a second to explain this to my son, but there are a few words like that in the books that may take a little extra explaining.

Overall both of my children loved these books. The older one liked reading them and the younger one enjoys being read to and looking at the adorable animal illustrations.
