Beautiful Books For Spring

Miss C loves big, colourful picture books especially when the stories are about animals. We received two books to review that fit the bill perfectly.

Time for Tea Polly Wally is the story of a very cute little blue bird who is really, really hungry. Polly Wally goes on a hunt for something yummy to eat, meeting lots of other animals along the way. Polly Wally meets a zebra who likes to eat sweet green grass but when Polly Wally tries some she thinks it tastes YUK! This book is a great toddler book with lots of bright pictures and a surprise lift the flap page at the end of the book where we find out what Polly Wally really likes to eat.

Miss C loved turning the pages to see what animal Polly Wally would meet next!
Her favourite was Eleanor Elephant and her tasty fruit and vegetables.

Time for Tea Polly Wally is written by Kali Stileman and will be published on 26th April 2012 by Red Fox Picture Books as a paperback for £5.99

Odd Dog is another great toddler book. The pictures are lovely pastel colours so this book is perfect for bedtime reading to relax over-excited minds. Helmut, the dog, loves to eat apples. He loves them so much he doesn't want to share them with anyone, especially his next-door neighbour Igor, who he thinks might be trying to steal his apples from the apple tree in his garden. Every day he counts the apples on his tree to make sure none of them have gone missing. One day, when one of the apples falls into Igor's garden, Helmut get a big surprise!

Miss C loved helping Helmut count his apples up and this book tells a lovely story of how you can make friends with someone who you least expected too.

Odd Dog is written by Claudia Boldt and will be published on 3rd May 2012 by Johnathan Cape as a paperback priced at £5.99

We received these 2 books for the purposes of a review. The opinions expressed are my own.
