Both of these books have been read and reviwed on behalf the Kindle Book Review. I recieved a free copy of these books in return for a fair and honest review
Counting to Ten and Sharing My Easter Eggs
This is a lovely ebook that uses rhymes to guide your child from 1-10.
Some of the rhymes are slightly tenuous but, it’s a nice little ebook that is well illustrated. I read this on Kindle for Ipad so the colour images displayed well. I’m not sure how well it work on the older Kindle models.
The book is short and colourful and the images used to help the narrator share their Easter eggs will also allow for some other discussions too as your child learns more about the world (ie what colour is that number, counting the eggs etc).
A nice book to add to the collection for a little learning to count.
Billy and the Monster who liked to fart
I struggled with this book if I am honest. I wanted to like it, and I wanted to really see the appeal but there is something missing for me.
The story follow Billy who makes up his friend ‘Monster’ and blames monster for ‘farting’ when it is, in actual fact Billy.
I would like to have seen more be made about Billy having an imaginary friend (something that I suspect many young children do) and maybe some moral about how you shouldn’t blame your behaviou on others.
That said, I guess you could follow up this kind of thing with your child anyway after reading the book.
The book is colourful and the illustrations are nice too. I read this on the kindle for ipad app, so I am not sure how it would work on the older (black and white) kindle models, but then I guess a young child probably wouldn’t find the older kindle models as engaging?
