1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth it, 14 Sep 2010
This review is from: Solar (Hardcover)
Lovely words from an obviously accomplished writer, but I was left asking 'what was the point?'

4.0 out of 5 stars good consolidation of learning, 26 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A book marked 'maths' is never going to be popular during the summer hols in our house, but this has been useful and has been completed (!) as consolidation of existing learning.

Good tips are given on the pages, though these might need to be pointed out

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book but took a while to convince my daughter, 26 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I could only ever do basics of cat's cradle as a kid - now I'm great!

At first my daughter didn't want to know (old-fashioned look of the book?) but eventually she got hooked. Now her friends want the book too.

Some of the explanations are a bit difficult to follow, but with the help of pictures you usually get something

4.0 out of 5 stars Good early reading book - finding items on the page retains interest, 26 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like this series of boks, though not too sure why the kids have such strange names - no doubt there's a clever reason!

My 4 yr old enjoys the stories and has a go at the reading herself. She enjoys answering / discussing the set questions in the back.

Items to find on each page also retain her interest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought for 9 yr old - enjoyed by 39 yr old!, 26 Aug 2010

I wish we'd had these books when we were growing up. My daughter uses it for reference and a quick flick tells her what she needs to know. My husband has read it cover to cover and now wants all the others in the series. Definitely recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely pictures, 26 Aug 2010

Lovely book with nice pictures and a sweet ending - but not for those who have just left nursery and friends behind. Care!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the ticket, 26 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm not really technically minded and I didn't want something that does lots of other things - just a digital recorder that's simple to use and easy to hold etc. I haven't checked out all its features, but for recording my voice as I spoke and easy 'listen back' - this is great. It's also comfortable to hold. I'd recommend it for those not wanting to work out complicated devices!

2.0 out of 5 stars hard work, 11 April 2010
This review is from: The Book of Dave (Hardcover)
I made sure I finished this book as I don't like to be beaten and I hoped it would get easier, perhaps even a little jollier - It didn't!
Will Self has a unique style and it was an unusual book, but overall a real chore to read and not worth it in the end.

3.0 out of 5 stars The kids didn't enjoy it, 24 Jan 2010
I almost feel sorry about writing this review having read so many good ones, but my kids were bored with this film; they are 4 and 8. It was fine for me, though I can't say it was brilliant. My kids kept asking 'is she going to stop singing now?' and it certainly didn't keep their attention.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice product - not for 5+ yrs though, 29 Dec 2009
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for my daughter who's just turned 4. She loves it and it suits her fine. She's enjoying bouncing and the picture on the front is nice. One word of caution - don't buy it for a child who's much older than that (unless they're small for age) as it won't last long - it's not big.
