Book Review: Red Rockets and Rainbow Jelly – Part of #FictionFriday

It’s that time of the week again where we hop on board with @Home Dad and join in his #FictionFriday blog hop This week I’ve decided to feature Red Rockets and Rainbow Jelly (Sue Heap and Nick Sharratt)

red rockets and rainbow jelly

Red Rockets and Rainbow Jelly is a fun and colourful book that introduces young children to colours and objects in a simple and fun way using the characters Nick and Sue and their favourite colours and objects.

“Nick likes red apples, Sue likes green pears.”

“Nick likes brown bears and black cats, Sue likes black and white cats and black and white hats.”

Each concept is highlighted with simple, fun and colourful illustrations to capture the attention and imagination of little ones.

My daughter loves this book, which was bought as a present and at bedtime we have been known to ask for “more”. That in my mind is a seal of approval and as it’s educational too that’s an added bonus.

It gets our recommendation! Enjoy!

Book Review: Giraffes Can’t Dance – Part of @Homedad’s #FictionFriday

It’s that time of the week again where we hop on board with @Home Dad and join in his #FictionFriday blog hop This week I’ve decided to feature Giraffes Can’t Dance (Giles Andreae and Guy Parker-Rees) one of my daughter’s favourite’s

Giraffe's Can't Dance

Giraffe’s Can’t Dance is a fabulous and beautifully illustrated tale of a giraffe called Gerald and his longing to take part in the annual jungle dance. The cruel animal taunts at the dance however make Gerald freeze on the spot and  and creep off home feeling all sad and alone. On his journey home an encounter with a friendly cricket sees Gerald realise his potential and his dreams of dancing come true.

“Gerald felt his body do the most amazing thing. His hooves started shuffling making circles on the ground, his neck was gently swaying and his tail was swishing around.”

As Gerald loses himself in the music all the animals that had taunted him earlier in the evening begin to gather around and watch in awe.

The moral of the story is that

“We all can dance when we find music that we love”

Book Review: The What the Ladybird Heard Song – Part of @Homedad’s #FictionFriday

So this Fiction Friday I thought it would be good to review the latest addition to our collection, our World Book Day book, “The What the Ladybird Heard Song” (Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks).

what the ladybird heard song

What the Ladybird Heard Song is an entertaining story about a ladybird that lives on a farm and sees and hears everything but hardly ever speaks a word. The ladybird learns of a plan for robbers to steal the prize cow and all the other farm animals kick up a fuss and plan to foil the robbers plans.

The end result being “the farmer cheered and both cats purred, but the ladybird said never a word”
