Today I'm introducing a book that we were sent to review by Harper Collins. I read a lot with my son, and when I purchase books for him I tend to go for the safe classics that I enjoyed reading as a child, so it's really nice to be sent books that I might not have picked up otherwise. I'm hoping that by writing about some of them with you both here and over on my other blog Jennifer's Little World I'm able to share some books which will become the classics of the future.
Mabel and Me - Best of Friends by Mark Sperring and illustrated by Sarah Warburton is a story about Mabel and her best friend Me. The story follows Mabel and Me as they take a stroll, and meet a variety of interesting characters along the way. There's a case of mistaken identity, and it's fun to watch and see if your child notices what is going on.
We really enjoyed sharing this story together, and it's a lovely tale about friendship, aimed at children of an age where friendship is just starting to become important.This book is also an absolute delight for adults to read aloud. The vocabulary is rich and varied, far beyond that of most toddlers, but it doesn't get in the way of the story. The events are brought to life by the fantastic and lifelike illustrations. Definitely a recommended read for toddlers of all ages!
We received a copy of this book to review.
