Both my boys are little book worms with Pooh Bear bordering on obsession when it comes to books. It is a very rare occasion that you can’t tempt him to come and snuggle up with a good children’s book so we were delighted when we were contacted by My Little Big Town to review a few of their colourful titles.
‘Where’s The Scone’ counts down from ’10 Llamas eating Bananas’ to ’1 Swan eating a Scone’ and is full of fun and colour. I love that the way we say scone (scon) up north is confirmed as the ‘right’ way to say it ;)
Books which rhyme are always a hit with us and I think it helps with literacy since they have to find a word which rhymes to finish the sentence and the rhythm is helpful too and I enjoy reading them to the boys.
In addition to ‘Where’s The Scone’ we were also sent ‘The Monster Book of Colours’ and ‘The Monster Book of Numbers’. Well, my boy’s hated both these books…
Ok, I’m joking! They absolutely loved them. They are full of imagination and brightly coloured illustrations by Calvin Innes and, as you might have guessed, are great for learning numbers and colours.
All the books we were sent are great sizes for taking out and about yet big enough for the bold illustrations to make an impact. Spud already knows most of the Monster’s names we have read them so often and Pooh Bear loves searching for the various hidden items throughout ‘Where’s The Scone’
We would definitely recommend purchasing books from My Little big Town, who are based in Yorkshire and also produce their titles in digital form.
With titles such as ‘Stuart the Bug Eating Man’ and ‘Pirates Don’t Play Cricket’, I can see us buying books from Little Big Town as the boys grow up. My Little Big Town aims to publish ‘Fun, Exciting, Silly Books Children WANT to read’ and from the books we were sent and looking on their website, they have accomplished exactly that. I am harnessing all my willpower not to buy the boys a t-shirt or myself a mug featuring graphics from their books as they look brilliant and just what my boys are in to.
***Disclosure: We were sent the books for the purpose of this review which has been conducted with honesty and integrity***
