Finding Dory – Book of the Film

Disney Pixar Finding Dory Book of the Film from Parragon books tells the sequel story to the Finding Nemo film that was a big hit a few years ago.  We haven’t seen the film Finding Dory but the children were exciting to receive the book and get reading.  My 8yr old read it herself over a a couple of weeks and really enjoyed it.  She then passed it to her younger brother age 6 who was really keen to listen to the story and we happily read him a couple of chapters each night before bed.

Forgetful Dory is very happy living in the ocean with her friends, Marlin and Nemo. But one day, memories of her long-lost parents come flooding back to her. With the help of old friends and new, including Hank the septopus, can Dory finally discover her past?

The story follows Dory on her adventures where she meets old friends such as Destiny the whale who recognises her and helps tell her about her past.  She finds many friendly faces along the way in this exciting adventure.

In the centre of the book are 8 full colour picture pages which really help bring the story to life.  Mister B, my 6 year old really enjoyed looking at these to remind him what the characters looked like and retell the story in his own words.  The chapters are short meaning you can easily pick the book up and just read a few pages or a few chapters if you have more time.

My Big Monster Book of Fun – Review

My Big Monster Book of Fun from Parragon books is a jam packed activity book for little ones with over 190 pages of fun things to read and do.  It reall

WP_20151111_14_55_51_ProThe book is divided into sections, starting first with a 24 page rhyming story ‘Scaredy Boo!’ accompanied by full colour page illustrations to keep little ones entertained.  There are then sections for monster activities, colouring, T-Rex Terror, dinosaur activities, dinosaur colouring and an answer section to the puzzles throughout the book.

The activities are so varied from spotting differences, putting monsters in order, finishing drawing some zombies etc that it will keep children interested and motivated to work through the book.  It’s also an easy book to pick up and put down as an when you please.  My little boy loves this and often picks it up to do a few pages.

As well as having at home this would be great to take away on holiday to keep children entertained or whilst travelling as it’s self contained with loads of things to do, you just need a few pencils!
