10,9,8... Owls Up Late

 

10 cheeky, bouncy, noisy owls are playing in a tree. Mummy calls for bedtime but the owlets are having far too much fun to go to sleep! Aimed at reluctant sleepers, 10,9,8… Owls Up Late uses the count-down of owls to make bedtime fun, educational and relaxing.

We recieved a copy from Little Tiger Press and Izzy has fallen in love with 10,9,8… Owls Up Late. For £10.99 it’s a great bedtime book for all toddlers! Izzy loves this book, especially the peep-through pages. The muted colours and count-down helps children relax. Creating a tranquil mood with it’s warm and loving conclusion, children effortlessly drift off to sleep. 

The soothing use of rhyme with the peep-through images adds an intriguing, interactive element, revealing different amusing animals & their expressions. Georgina Deutsch’s gorgeous owl illustrations definitely caught Izzy’s attention and the fabulous counting guide at the back teaches children numbers.

10,9,8… Owls Up Late is a superb bedtime book and we would definitely recommend it! Joining in and shouting ‘We’re having too much fun and we won’t go to bed!’ really amuses Izzy. If you are looking for a bedtime book to help settle your little one this is a brilliantly helpful book.

Jungle Jam Book Review

We were really excited to receive such a captivating & colourful story book aimed at children aged 0-5 years to review with the girls, Written by Louise & Noam Lederman & it’s called Jungle Jam.

We recieved the book, a magnet & a puzzle, I was impressed with the bright and colourful cover, it’s eye-catching but not too in your face, even the Mr agreed it looked good!
As it arrived whilst Eva was at school, I decided to see what Izzy thought of it first as it’s mostly aimed at her age group.

We sat and read it to see what Jungle Jam was about. We met Mikey the Monkey who was off on an adventure to make it big! Along the way he meets several friends in the Jungle but refuses to join them, intent on making it big by himself until eventually he decides to join them all and make it big together!

Izzy (2) sat and listened intently, pointing out all the new characters we met along the way, with her favourite being Ella the elephant and her drums.

 

Izzy spent the rest of the afternoon looking through the pages & claiming the magnet as hers and adding it into her magnet collection on the storage heater haha..

Eva (6) was just as impressed when she got home and loved that she was able to read it to her sister who sat & listened to the story again..several times!

The book is beautifully illustrated and the girls really loved reading it over and over and over… Eva loved it so much that she wanted to talk about it on her first video! She was a bit sniffly as she’s coming down with a cold & unsure of what to say but she wanted to do the video so badly, so here it is.

We definitely recommend ordering yourself a copy of Jungle Jam here on Amazon for just £5.99 to add to your bookshelf. It’s such a fun book to read with all the colourful pictures and characters and the lovely storyline, I can see this book being a favourite for quite some time! The last few pages have some awesome musical craft’s for you to make too!
