Paper Playtime Animals
Paper Playtime Animals
by Kumon Publishing
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun way to improve fine motor skills, 14 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Paper Playtime Animals (Paperback)
Fantastic book! My four year old really enjoys it. Lovely progression of cutting and sticking skills, and an animal fact to go with each model.


One Hundred Years of Poetry for Children
One Hundred Years of Poetry for Children
by Michael Harrison
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Bit miserable, 14 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A surprisingly large number of poems about death and mourning. Even though there are some wonderful poems in this book, my children were put off by looking up poems about pets only to find that most of the pets died.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun, but not choose your own., 27 Mar. 2016
It's a bright, colourful and entertaining book, packed with interesting facts.
It's not, however, a 'choose your own adventure' book. If you make the wrong choice, you're sent back to try again. There's only one possible story line. I found this a bit disappointing.
The Maths Quest books in the same series are more of a traditional 'choose your own adventure' style.


Illustrated History of Saints & Sainthood
Illustrated History of Saints & Sainthood
by Tessa Paul
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Attractive book, on a small number of saints., 21 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Doesn't actually have as many saints as I expected, and almost all the ones that are described in detail are Biblical characters. I was hoping for stories of the saints, and pictures of them represented in art.
This book has fewer stories than I had hoped for and doesn't touch on the symbols of saints. It doesn't tell the stories of St Lucia or St Nicholas, for example, which is a shame.
Still, it is heavily illustrated and does have a lot of church history, including modern history of the Church's relationship with saints.


Jeeves and the Wedding Bells
Jeeves and the Wedding Bells
by Sebastian Faulks
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £16.99

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute pleasure., 13 Feb. 2014
I am a fan of PG Wodehouse (though, not usually of Sebastian Faulks - sorry).
I adored this book. It was a delight from beginning to end. The perfect tribute. Almost like suddenly having a new Wodehouse to read!
Faulks managed a wonderful imitation of style, but also lits of true-fan nods to the original. And, a really satisfying storyline. Probably not something Wodehouse would have written, but, then this is more Fanfiction than sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and full of information, 12 Feb. 2014
Stunning book, packed with information.
We all loved reading this. It really helps to give an overview of how life developed.
There's a picture of how the Earth develops along the top as well, which helps put the story of life into perspective.


Mens Game British Quilted Wax Rain Jacket
Mens Game British Quilted Wax Rain Jacket
Price: £19.16 - £32.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible value for money!, 12 Feb. 2014
Felt a bit guilty buying such a cheap coat for my husband. But he has lost several coats recently, so I was a bit fed up with spending a lot.
This is better than several much more expensive coats. It is waterproof. It has big pockets. It is warm. I love it.
And, if he loses this one, I won't be quite so irritated by having to buy another!

5.0 out of 5 stars My two year old can build it, 12 Feb. 2014
My two year old boy is delighted to have his own 'Lego' instructions to follow, just like his big brothers. He can build these animals independently. So, they are very simple models, but that is great for us.


Tobar Rainbow Music Bells
Tobar Rainbow Music Bells
Offered by somethingdifferent
Price: £13.20

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely sound, 12 Feb. 2014
This review is from: Tobar Rainbow Music Bells (Toy)
We're not very musical parents, so these bells are perfect.
The little sheet enclosed allows us to play well-known tunes straight away. So even we can make music with our children!
The notes are on the bells too, so perhaps a musical person could adapt other tunes to play as well.
Anyway, they sound lovely even when played by a heavy handed boy and a toddler.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant value!, 12 Feb. 2014
Bought this after we ordered a much more expensive one from a big name and it failed to show up.
Was a bit worried that thus would be poor quality. But it is a proper blackout blind (we got the brown one) and complelety blocks out the orange glow of the street light outside my son's room.
The pull cord is a little frail, but it is holding up against my son's not too gentle use, so is obviously stronger than it looks!
Also very easy and quick to fit.
