At BritMums Live, I met the lovely ladies from Parragon Books who asked me if I would like to do a book review on, “One Tiger Roars,” Little Learners. We were also given a copy to give to a friend, which I thought was a great idea. H’s friend was very pleased with her copy.
What we thought of, “One Tiger Roars”
“One Tiger Roars,” is a board book with 6 chunky pages. We loved how there were little holes in the bottom corners for little hands to fit into so that young children can hold the book confidently while looking at the wonderful, colourful illustrations.
Both children were excited about reviewing this book.
Even though it is intended for younger children, we always enjoy just sharing books and talking about the illustrations. I think that older children can still gain a lot from sharing stories with younger children. We really liked the illustrations and the cut out corners to show the other animals in the book. H is familiar with her numbers but I think that this book will help her to continue to recognise as well as to think more about the numbers 1 to 5. She enjoyed counting the animals as we went through the book.
Here is a short extract from the book, being read by my son.
Of course, filming children does not always go right first time. This is one of our attempts:
We read this book several times, which shows to me that H enjoyed reading it. She even sat and read it to herself after I’d put her to bed. She read the book aloud to me and her brother, using the pictures to help her recite it. She was very proud of herself but when I tried to video her, she decided to speak only gobbledygook.
Throughout the book, both children enjoyed accompanying the words with sound effects. We had roaring tigers, trumpeting elephants, munching zebras and crunching giraffes. I like that this book appeals to the senses, as I think that most children enjoy experiencing different ways of bringing a book to life.
Overall, we were impressed with this Little Learners book from Parragon. My children certainly made the most of exploring, “One Tiger Roars,” (RRP £3.99) for this book review.
Disclosure: We were given two copies of, “One Tiger Roars,” from Parragon Books for the purposes of this book review. All words and opinions are honest and my own.
