My 4 year old Daughter already has a couple of other books by Anita Jeram which she loves to read and look at so when I was looking through books in a charity shop last week and spotted 'I Love My Little Storybook' for the bargain price of 50p I could not resist getting it for her. We have a few pet rabbits at home so my Daughter really loves hearing stories about them.
This book is by Anita Jeram who has written and illustrated quite a few children's books including the very popular 'Guess How Much I Love You'.
~ The Story ~
'I Love My Little Story Book' is a story book for younger children. It is all about a little white and brown bunny rabbit that is telling the reader all about the magical places his best story book can take him through imagination.
Little bunny imagines he is in lots of wonderful places meeting interesting people and animals when he reads his book.
'' There's a magic forest in my storybook where all my favourite frens and flowers and mushrooms grow. My special friends are there. I say hello.''
Little bunny takes you in to his magical forest world through a tree with a door in the trunk where you then go on to meet all his friends and visit other places like the 'magical lake'.
~ My Summary ~
This is a very charming but simple story which captures my daughters imagination mainly because it is filled with so much gorgeous artwork. Anita Jeram has created the cutest little characters for this story, fairy mice and rabbits, little frogs with crowns on, a giant, a friendly lion, unicorns and many more all hidden amongst the exotic plants and mushrooms which are dotted about throughout the story.
This book shows children that through reading books they can go anywhere they want to and really captured my Daughters imagination well. She particularly loves the page with the unicorns on, just like I would have when I was small.
The text in this story book is large, clear and simple. It would be perfect for a child that is just learning to read and is also good for younger children as they would soon catch on to the story and start reciting bits along with you when you read it to them.
The copy we have of this book is the hard back style. I would recommend this version as it is very tough and could easily be wiped clean and the pages inside are very thick, good quality paper that will not rip easily.
