Today I am super excited to be sharing another superb children’s read with you – Flicker’s Garden Rescue by Jodie Parachini #blogtour #kidsbooks @jodieparachini @rararesources

My Review

I loved this book as soon as I saw it’s bright and colourful cover, straight away it catches your attention. Whilst being filled with bright and colourful images and text which is in an easy to read font making the perfect story to read with a child or for them to practice their reading, whilst reading to you.

The story was easy to understand with a great explanation of how pollination works, which is a great way to start children building their understanding of nature early on.

Daisy really enjoyed this story and loved talking about it afterwards and how she thought her younger cousins would enjoy it.

A great story to grab for Christmas for your younger readers with a positive message and some great talking points about pollination as they start to explore nature.

Book Blurb

Flicker and her friends discover how helping others can be fun.

Queen Bee can’t stop sneezing, so she won’t be able to oversee the pollination of all the fruit and vegetables in the garden this year. Not only does this mean there won’t be a Garden Party, it also means there won’t be any yummy food. Flicker and her friends help save the party–and the food.

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.
