The Rising
The Rising
by Tom Moorhouse
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £10.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 25 Dec 2014
This review is from: The Rising (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an excellent sequel to the river singers. I have thought both books are very good, and they are very readable for children.

In this book, kale and strife along with Sylvan are on the run for survival... I really enjoyed it as did the child I read it with. I can't wait to read more from this author.

Would recommend.


Small Elephant's Bathtime
Small Elephant's Bathtime
by Tatyana Feeney
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £11.38

5.0 out of 5 stars Two year old really likes it., 23 Dec 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very sweet book.

It is a very gentle and easy to read short story with some nice accompanying pictures. My two year old seems to really like it and has kept returning to it over the last few days. It has also got her more excited about having a bath (whilst pretending to be an elephant!..).

Would recommend.

Make art with your hands and feet!: Draw around your hands and feet to make pictures
by Jacky Bahbout

4.0 out of 5 stars Handfuls of treasure, 20 Dec 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a really good size and contains numerous small art projects for younger children, using hands, feet, toes, fingers. From making a crocodiles mouth out of fingers through to making handfuls of treasure. A lot of mess can be made doing this, but also much fun and much laughter!

Would recommend.


How to Draw Vintage Fashion
How to Draw Vintage Fashion

Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.71

5.0 out of 5 stars Well presented, 20 Dec 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book is really well presented. It is a decent size - so no squinting at tiny pictures.

The book not only show the basics of drawing different styles from different eras but it also gives information about the era and styles that you are drawing, therefore making it interesting not only from a drawing point of view, but also to put things into perspective.

Would recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, 20 Dec 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very long (and heavy!) book. About Carl Schmitt, a controversial figure due to his links with fascism, but a person who also contributed a lot to political science debate and discourse.

This book is well written, and contains lots and lots of facts and information. It would be suitable for a wide range in terms if audience, from academics through to the normal reader with an interest in history and political science.

Would recommend.


Challenge Salmon and Whitefish Dog Biscuits, 300 g
Challenge Salmon and Whitefish Dog Biscuits, 300 g
Price: £8.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Depends which dog we are talking about, 18 Dec 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These dog biscuits look almost like small biscuits for humans!

Upon arrival, I duly opened the bag and had a spaniel and terrier eagerly sniffing around me. Paddy, the spaniel, had a quick sniff of his biscuit and appeared to swallow it whole. Given a second one he did actually chew it, albeit quickly.

Suzie, the terrier, took hers to her bed and placed it in front of her. She then fell asleep with the tip of her nose touching the biscuit whilst Paddy slobbered nearby. Suzie never did eat it. She woke up, sniffed it and walked away. Paddy was pleased.

Overall, these biscuits went down very well with one dog and not so well with the other.


Pajanimals - Meet The Pajanimals [DVD]
Pajanimals - Meet The Pajanimals [DVD]
Price: £7.25

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, 16 Dec 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a definite hit at my house. At long last we have got a DVD which rivals peppa pig in terms of how much my two year old daughter likes it. At last we can watch something different!...

The DVD is very gentle and the characters are likeable to young children. The stories are very suitable for bedtime viewing and are interspersed with music and songs.

Would very much recommend.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These flash cards have been really handy for my two year old daughter. She hasn't started talking as quickly as some children and these have very quickly got her shouting out words. They are a good size for small hands and she really enjoys using them. My three year old is learning letters with them. So overall. These have been a great success!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, 15 Dec 2014
This review is from: Disclaimer (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Disclaimer is a good book that kept me reading - I finished it in 24 hours!....

It is generally well written although I found the first couple of chapters a little hard to get into - after that all was well and I very much enjoyed the book.

Babies Firsts Jersey Cotton Sheet Single Pack (95 x 65 cm)
Babies Firsts Jersey Cotton Sheet Single Pack (95 x 65 cm)
Price: £9.98

5.0 out of 5 stars Well fitting white sheet, 15 Dec 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a relatively soft feeling sheet. It is elastic aged around the edges providing a really good fit to the mattress. It is white and a fresh looking sheet that will go with most bedding sets. It can be washed at 40 degrees so will go in with all my other whites fine. I like this sheet and having just used it for the first time, my daughter seems to sleep on it comfortably.

Would recommend.
