My Thoughts…

MOG is a timeless favourite character, I read MOG’s storybooks with my children, and now I’m reading with my grandson.

The illustrations are comical and colourful, and the numbers are clearly defined. Arranged with the number in large, clear font on the left-hand side and the MOG illustration and phrase, including the number on the right-hand side,  it is easy to use and reinforces the number using MOG’s comical antics. There is a summary of all the numbers  1 to 10 at the end, as MOG dreams of counting.

It is suitable for children of one year upwards because they can enjoy the pictures and become familiar with the number shapes. My grandson is two, and he named most of the numbers and counted the items in the MOG illustrations.

I received a copy of this book from HarperCollins Children’s via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

All Aboard the Toilet Train – Bing 5* Review

Join Bing on a toilet training adventure in this interactive sound book – perfect for encouraging young children to use the toilet with confidence.

Bing doesn’t use his potty anymore – he uses the big toilet, and you can too! It can be scary at first, but with a little practice, you’ll be catching the Toilet Train in no time.

Bingsters will love pressing the sound icon and joining in the fun. Choo! Choo!

Catching the toilet train. . . It’s a Bing thing!

My Thoughts…

A lovely brightly coloured, easy to follow book featuring the toddler’s favourite Bing. I read the digital version which isn’t interactive.
The interactive board book will have even more toddler appeal as they love to press buttons and make noise. A fun, way to tackle toilet training. My two-year-old grandson loved it.
