Mr Tumble’s Big Book of Counting – Review

Mr Tumble has undoubtedly been one of my children’s favourite television stars.  They have both sat glued to his television programmes and love joining in as much as they can.  Miss M has started to grow out of him but is keen for her younger brother Mister B to have the same fun with Mr Tumble that she has enjoyed over the years.

Mr Tumble bookMr Tumble’s Big Book of Counting, a new lift the flap book from Egmont arrived for us to review, and Miss M’s eyes lit up as she showed Mister B through the pages, seeing if he knew his numbers.

The book teaches children to count up to 5 with each number spanning a double page with a flap that opens out to make a triple size page.  Each page contains a large number image with traceable finger lines, a little rhyme and bright colourful pictures with items to count relating to the number on the  page.  The book also makes use of the different Tumble family characters to include, Fisherman Tumble, Grandad Tumble, Aunt Polly and more.

Mr Tumble

Mister B, who is 3, enjoyed the book and was able to recognise the numbers and enjoyed counting the objects.  The flaps proved a hit too as he was intrigued to see what was underneath.  This a large hardback book with thick card pages.  With it’s bold, bright illustrations it’s perfect for any little Mr Tumble fan out there and a great way to get to grips with numbers!

All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions and we received a copy of the book in order to write the review.

Spaghetti with the Yeti – Children’s Book Review

Spaghetti with the Yeti is a fun, new children’s picture book from Egmont.  The story follows a young boy George who is on a mission to find a yeti, taking along with him a tin of spaghetti to see if the yeti likes it.

Spahetti with the Yeti from egmont press

The Spaghetti and the Yeti book is perfect to read to little ones with bright, interesting illustrations covering each page and a couple of rhyming storylines to go with it.  The rhyming makes it easy to read and fun for the children to listen to.  As George sets off to find a yeti, he comes across various other creatures along the way – each of which 5 yr old Miss M thought were hilarious and had her in fits of giggles looking at the illustrations.  She even attempted to read the book to herself which was really good and then read it to her little brother.

Spaghetti with the Yeti Egmont bookWe really enjoyed this book and it had a lovely ending with George finally finding a very friendly yeti and they sit down together to share his tin of spaghetti.  Spaghetti and the Yeti is great entertainment for young children either during the day or at bedtime – this one has been picked for the bedtime story pile every night so far!
