Synopsis

A Little Bit of Oomph! by Barney Saltzberg

How do you make something ordinary become extraordinary? Put a little oomph into it! Put your heart into everything you do, and everything you do will turn into something beautiful. Tiny seeds become gardens. Little notions turn into big oceans. Songs inside your head inspire people to dance. Even the book you're reading becomes something else completely. Filled with pop-ups, pull tabs, lift-the-flaps, accordion pulls and the wonderfully inventive doo-dads kids have grown accustomed to in Saltzberg's charming books A Little bit of Oomph! Is a triumph of paper-engineering that teaches by way of inspiration and surprise. All you need is to add a little oomph to the things you do - and a lot of heart.

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
