Reviews

This is a great book. I have read many books about The Queen but this book is different, perfect for children as an introduction for further reading ... I recommend this as a great gift for this Diamon Jubilee year and would make a great addition to any school library. SARAH'S BOOK REVIEWS It's a great book for children aged five years and above to introduce them to the concept of the monarchy and what all the pomp and ceremony is all about. Best fo all [are the] fun facts and great illustrations. CHOPSY BABY ...a great souvenir for children to keep so they can remember this landmark occasion in British history. The illustrations are terrific ... Highly recommended. LINCOLNSHIRE ECHO There are many books about the Queen out at the moment and this is by far the best. ANGELS AND URCHINS This is a great little book ... cram-packed with facts and brilliant illustrations. It's ideal for primary school children who want to learn more about our monarch in an interesting, informative and entertaining way ... Whether you read this book in preparation for the Diamond Jubilee or after the event, it's brilliant book that makes understanding our current monarchy much easier for children. BOOKAPOET A perfect Jubilee primer for the under-teens ... utterly charming and nostalgic. MAIL ON SUNDAY YOU MAGAZINE Highly recommended! THE OVERFLOWING LIBRARY Lively in both the facts selected and the illustartion, this is bound to appeal to a wide range of children. THOUGHTS FROM THE HEARTHFIRE A perfect introduction to the Queen's life. BEST OF BRITISH covers the basics of the Queen's life and reign extremely well DAILY TELEGRAPH
