Reviews

Part of the Magnetology series, this oversize board book includes 45 construction-themed magnets-pipes, doors, signs, and loads of vehicles-that can be stuck and re-stuck onto the pages. (A helpful closing spread identifies the vehicles and their capabilities.) The book's four scenes revolve around the building a home, expanding a road, and supplying a neighborhood with water and electricity; Latyk's crisp digital artwork leaves plenty of open space for children to fill with jackhammers, cranes, excavators, and their operators. A mix of questions ( How do you think electricity gets into your house? ) and construction details add some substance to the magnet-driven fun, while letting readers consider which tools are right for each job. Ages 3-5. (Apr.)

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

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

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