The Lovereading4Kids comment

The latest in a series of attractive activity books inspired by The Gruffalo, this is packed with fun activities for young children to do this winter, at home and outdoors. Indoor activities include instructions for making a snow globe and a really cool Gruffalo snowflake for your window. I also really liked the spread on spiders, which enables children to identify eight-legged house guests! The book helps children name wildlife outside the home too, plus trees and flowers, and there are pages for their own notes and drawings. This will provide hours of fun, and the activities link into the Early Years Foundation Stage of the curriculum for reception and year 1 too. ~ Andrea Reece
