Mini Reviews – PICTURE BOOKS! ðŸ“šðŸ˜ðŸ¤¯

Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog! I’ve been really loving reviewing picture books this year and yesterday I got a big book full of them from Walker Books. Usually I wait a few days to publish my review but I was honestly too excited so you’re getting it now and I can’t recommend these books enough!

Thank you so much to Walker Books for providing me with review copies.💕

Ada and the Galaxies by Alan Lightman & Olga Pastuchiv – Illustrated by Susanna Chapman

September 8, 2021

Ages 4+

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Okay, so before I even get into the review just look at this cover! It’s absolutely beautiful! I love space books and I wish I’d had more books about them on my shelf as a kid so I jumped at the chance to review this one!

Everything from the endpapers to the message of this book was stunning! The artwork was amazing and I really loved learning about galaxies with Ada and Poobah, as well as visiting the beach with them! This was such a fun way to learn and also still be entertained by Ada and her family. I also really appreciated the note at the end talking about the Hubble Telescope and galaxies. If you have a child in your life, this is a must-have for their bookshelf!

Where’s Wally? Santa Spotlight Search by Martin Handford

September 8, 2021

Ages 5+

Rating: 4 out of 5.

When I was younger, I had a spotlight search book about animals, similar to this and I absolutely LOVED it, I took it everywhere with me and thought it was so so cool. So, the fact that there’s a spotlight Where’s Wally book is absolute genius! I love Where’s Wally and always crack open one of the books when I see them at the library so this was a tonne of fun and such a fun and inventive way to make finding Wally and his friends even more fun!

This was such a blast and just in time for everyone to add it to their Christmas lists! My favourite pages were Santa’s Workshop & Christmas Eve!

Drover by Neridah McMullin – Illustrated by Sarah Anthony

Ages 4+

Rating: 3 out of 5.

I mean, just from looking at the cover we knew this was going to be a banger, right?

I absolutely loved the artwork and the colouring – it look fantastic and really showed the Australian bush in an amazing way! I can’t wait to pass this along to my local primary school, I know the kids will love it! I especially can’t wait for them to read the glossary and read all those new words!

Maxine by Bob Graham

September 8, 2021

Ages 3+

Rating: 4 out of 5.

When I was much younger and first learning to read, I was obsessed with two books, they were called “Let’s Get a Pup!” Said Kate and Max and they were both written by Bob Graham. I read them both every night until the pages got too worn to read and I still remember them now, over 20 years later. So, as soon as I saw Bob Graham had a new book out I knew I had to read it!

This was such a cute story and I loved how it was so positive and all about embracing change and how the right people will support you in what you want to do! I hope we get to see this family again with their cute thunderbolt house!
