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.

Today is my turn to jump on the blog tour for the wonderful Dig It, Digby by Jodie Parachini #blogtour #digitdigby @rararesources @jodieparachini

My Review

I absolutely loved reading this book, it was bright and vibrant with brilliant images that weren’t too complicated and suited the theme of the book perfectly.

As soon as I started reading and realised it had a rhyming rhythm, it totally rolled off the tongue and I just kept reading. I love doing the blog yours for younger kids as Daisy always loves to pick up the book and she loved this one too. She loved the images and spent ages flicking through and going back to them.

The words used were perfect for younger children with words written in larger font and bold for extra impact and to allow the children to join in when reading too. I can’t wait to read this with my friend’s little ones, as I just know they will love it and that the concept of dancing trucks will make them roar with laughter.
