Book Reviews

Here are some of the lovely books I have been sent recently but hadn't yet reviewed:

Can You Dance to the Boogaloo?
by Alice V. Lickens

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a great book to read with younger children. It encourages them to get and dance whilst enjoying the funky drawings and whacky lyrics.

There are even drawings of musical instruments to learn about and recognise. It was such fun to read and over time I am sure that my son would memorise them all!

The illustrations are bright and bold and appeal to both children and adults.

Pinocchio by Michael Morpurgo and Emma Chichester Clark

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A brilliant re-working of the classic story. Michael Morpurgo has added his own style to the familiar story which has freshened it up and appeals to children and adults alike.

Emma Chichester Clark has done beautiful illustrations throughout the story which really bring the characters to life. This is one of those books that can be enjoyed at any age and will be kept to share with future generations.

Ali B Vs the Universe
by Scott Cormack

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was written by my son's Little Kickers football coach as a way of using children's love of football to encourage them to read. My boy really enjoyed the story with the tale of the dog Ali B saving the world from aliens by playing football against them.

The story can also be combined into real football training games so it combines both literacy and PE - perfect for Foundation stage and Keystage 1. Definitely a good way to engage reluctant readers
