Book Review

The book certainly helps a developing mind concentrate and tap into a deeper imagination

This was a challenging book for Bobby as it was quite long. But we embraced it together. He learned how to use a book mark and to have breaks, picking up the story again the following evening.

Bobby curled up and listened intently to the full story over the course of a week or so and has since returned to it to flick through himself. The pace and adventure of the characters was full of surprises and drama which I think kept him hooked.

The name of the characters was sweet and catchy and he liked thinking about his own teddies whilst we read it – imagining taking them on an adventure and what it would be like if they spoke!

The book certainly helps a developing mind concentrate and tap into a deeper imagination.

The story is all from the Earth’s point of view, like a letter with both joy and sadness at what can happen if not looked after. It’s told in a captivating way.

Bobby loved the paint brush picture of the rainbow and also loved the part that talked about dinosaurs as they are his favourite.It is a very beautiful book with lovely bright and at times abstract illustrations – all helping to capture the imagination and support the text which for a 3-4 year old was quite long and at times complex.

We would recommend it to children aged 4-6 year old.
