Families come in all shapes and sizes and from all sorts of backgrounds. They speak various languages, eat different sorts of food, live in different kinds of homes and celebrate special occasions in a variety of ways. A celebration of family differences, this is a busy book full of all-embracing illustrations of every kind of family imaginable that are fun to look at time and time again. Beyond just giving pleasure, All About Family is also designed to ensure every child feels that their kind of family is just one of many and not anything unusual. The short accompanying words to each picture briefly and helpfully explain technical terms such a as adoption and fostering.
This robust, beautifully illustrated board book is a great way to teach young children about nature, and will also boost their vocabulary. Themed under headings such as gardens and parks; feathers, eggs and nests; and rocks and gems, the pages feature an array of birds, animals, insects and plants, all clearly illustrated and labelled. Many will be familiar to UK children, the little wren for example, branch of ivy, or dandelion clock, while others are more exotic – the Baobab tree, or Arctic fox. Each page, each object is lovely to look at and provides so much to spot and discuss. ~ Andrea Reece
Bright, attractive pages and friendly text scattered with questions and invitations make this book a great way to start children thinking about who they are and how they fit into our world. One double page spread follows Anisha throughout her day, from getting up to school, playtime and home life, concluding, ‘Can you draw some pictures of your day?’; there are pages on feelings, on clothes and food – what’s good to eat and why; and a page to show how what we can do changes as we grow up. Children are encouraged to complete scenes with colourful stickers of both words and images. An excellent and inclusive first book. ~ Andrea Reece
Very attractive to look at, clearly laid out and including lots of questions for readers and suggestions for things they can do after reading, this is a very good first information book. It begins with a definition of nature and goes on to look at plants and trees, then animals, insects, birds and fish explaining such things as food chains and life cycles and how all creatures from tiny bugs to huge whales are classified into groups. The illustrations are very appealing, particularly those of the flowers and trees, and it’s a book to encourage children to look at the world around them. ~ Andrea Reece
