Mini Book Reviews – September 2018

Time for  September’s Mini Reviews.

Thanks again to NetGalley and the different publishers for a copy of the books in return for an honest and unbiased review.

Did Dinosaurs Have Dentists by Patrick O’Donnell

My Rating: 💙💙💙


Format: Advance Digital Review Copy

Publisher: Schiffer Publishing Ltd, Schiffer Kids

Genres: Children’s Fiction

My Review:

I read this book to my 3 year old nephew.  He liked the illustrations in the book but struggled to stay focused on the story. I think his a little too young to understand the meaning behind the storyline. He did however, make his own story up about the dinosaurs going to the dentist.

While reading the book to my nephew I even managed to learn some of the names of the different dinosaurs.

I liked the information about the different dinosaurs in the back of the book.  It also shows how to sound out the names of each dinosaur so you don’t have to worry too much about pronouncing the names wrong.

Overall I liked the book.

The Snowman by Michael Morpurgo

Format: Advance Digital Review Copy

Publisher: Penguin Random House UK Children’s

Genres: Children’s Fiction

Publication Date: 18th October 2018

My Review:

The original book was one of my favourites books when I was growing up and still is. I loved the illustrations in this book, they are just adorable. Michael Morpurgo has done a great job with the re-telling of this magical book.

Read this to my nephew and he thoroughly enjoyed it, he now wants to build his own  magic flying snowman.

Origami 101 by Benjamin Coleman

Format: Digital Review Copy

Publisher: Quarto Publishing Group – Quarry Quarry Books

Genres: Arts & Photography, Crafts & Hobbies

My Review:

I’ve always wanted to learn how to Origami. I’ve tried numerous times by watch YouTube videos but have failed miserably.  My cousin has tried to teach me too, but yet again I’ve still not mastered it properly. I can make a boat and a flapping bird but most of the time the bird doesn’t flap so gave up even trying.

I then saw this book on NetGalley and I was so excited.  this book is brilliant for beginners like me. It starts with the basics of origami and works up to harder projects.  The book has very easy step by step instructions accompanied with very useful pictures.

I will definitely be buying this book for a few of my friends who I know would love this for Christmas.
