Mini Reviews: Kids Books πŸ“šπŸ˜

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m publishing something a bit different for me, but something I’m hoping to do more often on my blog in the future – picture book reviews! If you don’t already know, I’m a teacher aide so I read a lot of picture books when I’m at work, so I figured why not review them with you all? Enjoy!

Thank you so much to NewSouth Books for providing me with review copies.πŸ’•

Our World Out of Balance, Understanding Climate Change and What We Can Do  by Andrea Minoglio | 9781735000534 | Booktopia

Our World Out of Balance: Understanding Climate Change and What We Can Do by Andrea Minoglio & Laura Fanelli

June 2021

Ages 8+

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Okay, so this is definitely the longest book I’ll be reviewing today but it’s also my favourite! I loved how informative and easy to read this was, and I thought Laura Fanelli did an amazing job with the illustrations! I can’t pick just one favourite page because they all stood out to me, but if I had to pick just three I would recommend taking a look at How The Amazon Rainforest Works (pages 14 & 15), How Polar Sea Ice Is Formed (pages 22 & 23) and How Coral Reefs Get Bleached (pages 46 & 47). I think this is a fantastic resource for kids (and adults) and if you pick up any of the books from this blog post, I hope you read this one!

My First 100 Weather Words | My First 100 Bug Words | My First 100 Dinosaur Words by Chris Ferrie & Lindsay Dale-Scott

August 2021 β€’ Ages 0 – 3 β€’ ⭐⭐⭐.5

I adored these little books and I already can’t wait to show them to the kids at school when I’m there next! My favourite pages were the space & climate zones in the Weather Words book, beetles and grasshoppers from Bug Words & Carnosaurs (I love a Spinosaurus!) and the Pterosaurs pages from the 100 Dinosaur Words book!

The colours and illustrations were absolutely amazing and made these books so easy and fun to read! If I was a parent I would absolutely own the entire collection, but since I’m not I’ll be passing these along to my local school asap! Such an adorable series and such a fun way to learn about different topics! (I also really loved how soft and squishy the covers are!)

A super cute, quick read! This was adorable and I absolutely loved the font and the illustrations!

Hey, Water!

Hey, Water! by Antoinette Portis

August 2021

Ages 3 – 6

⭐⭐⭐⭐.5

First off, I just wanted to start by saying that I’m usually more of a visual reader than a physical one, but the texture of those pages? πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ’― I couldn’t get enough, it was so nice to flip the pages!! I absolutely adored the illustrations in this book and I loved all of the little pages showing different forms of water, so cute! I also really liked the inclusions of the Water Cycle illustration at the end, as well as the facts! I think this book is such a fun talking point about water and I definitely recommend it!

Fearless with My Dad by Cori Brooke & Giuseppe Poli

August 2021

Ages 3 – 6

⭐⭐⭐.75

What I’ve loved so much about reading these books to write these reviews, is how iferent each illustrations style has been! This was different to the others but I still really enjoyed it! I especially loved the full-page illustrations! My favourites were the treehouse page and the pages where they were looking at the moon! I love how creative this book was and I think it would be perfect for any father/son (or daughter!) duos out there!
