Mini Book Reviews – August 2018

Here are some Mini Reviews of books that I have read this month.

I would like to thank NetGalley and the publishers for a copy of the books in return for a honest and unbiased review.

Little Hoo Goes to School by Brenda Ponnay

cover146118-mediumMy Rating: 💙💙💙💙 (Really Liked it)

Format: Digital Review Copy (Ebook)

Publisher: Xist Publishing 

Genre: Children’s Fiction

My Review:

This is a cute little book for the younger children who are about to start a new school for the first time. It’s a great way to teach children why they shouldn’t be worried about starting school. It seems to cover some of the major issues that young children worry about when starting school. Having worked with preschool children as a volunteer I have had 1st hand experiences of some of these worries. Great book to have for children.  

I read this book to my 3 year old nephew and he really liked it too. He will be starting school in September.


My Birthday by Anita Bijsterbosch

Format: Advance Digital Review Copy (Ebook)

Publisher: Clavis Publishing 

Genre: Children’s Fiction

My Review:

I requested this book from NetGalley for my nephew who is turning 4 soon. He absolutely loved it. He was so excited about it being bears birthday. He even started planning what he wants for his birthday.

My opinion, it was a nice book easy to read, with nice illustrations but the book ends so suddenly. All of bears friends shout surprise and that’s the end. Would have been nice for it to end with bears reaction and him thanking his friends. Also I did find a few errors in the writing but I can’t say if these errors have been found and corrected by the publisher before the book is published, as I received this book as an eARC. Overall I liked this book.
