Disney - Is my Shirt getting Smaller?
This is another excellent book from Disney. I bought this book for a single £ from a book shop in Hartlepool, what a bargain!
The book itself is number 6, and is based on your growing body. It is intended to teach you about how your body grows, i.e. your t-shirt getting smaller.
The copy of the book I own is hard back and has many different images on the front of Disney Characters including Winnie the Pooh. Upon opening the book there is a small area on the back of the front page where you can write who the book belongs to.
The book itself is actually quite complex in terms of the words inside. I would not use this book for a beginner. The words are quite small and are written in a text similar to Times New Roman. The book has a large selection of images throughout which also tell the story, this can be easy to explain in pictures as well as words to your youngsters what is happening in the book.
The book will probably take around 15 minutes to read and consists of around 20 pages. On the back page of the book there is a page for learning and there are 4 steps teaching your youngster how to measure their own growth using a growth chart. It tells you what you need i.e. how much paper etc and all the instructions you will need to make your own growth chart.
Overall, a really good book, you can also get others in the same range teaching of other things i.e. Gravity
