The Story of Life: A First Book about Evolution
The Story of Life: A First Book about Evolution
by Catherine Barr
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £12.08

2.0 out of 5 stars Missing the key concepts of evolution!, 26 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is very good at conveying that life is dynamic and changing (single cells through to dinosaurs through to apes). It even gives some hints that those that are better adapted to their environment at the time survive better. But there is nothing that explains HOW life evolves. So when your five year old says "That's silly, monkeys don't turn into people" you are on your own...

1.0 out of 5 stars More of a leaflet really, 7 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is fine, as far as it goes. However if you have read even one or two online articles about running you have probably covered all of this material already. It is also very cheaply produced - no pictures (such as diagrams for the stretches) and quite a few typos. It is something between a leaflet and a short book, and I felt it was very overpriced for what it was.

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't work, 4 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Green Lantern Light-Up Ring (Toy)
I bought two. One worked for a few seconds, the other not at all. They are also very big (as suggested in the other reviews).


Stories of Knights (Young Reading (Series 1)) (Young Reading Series One)
Stories of Knights (Young Reading (Series 1)) (Young Reading Series One)
by Jane Bingham
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £4.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Better for more mature children, 4 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are proper Arthurian tales, retold with no (or not much) pandering to modern sensibilities. So for example we hear in full about Gawain's dilemma at having to marry and ugly woman, and later choose if she will be ugly by day or by night. Some children will be mature enough when they are the right reading age for the book (5 to 7) others possibly not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very satisfying toy, 5 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very satisfying toy! My main concern was whether it was easy enough to use for my five year olds, but it is - just. (Plain flying, not tricks or anything.) I recommend you get the bumper thing and use it - especially if you are five - as the copter is quite fragile.

Black and White Cat Costume for Kids 6-8 Years
Black and White Cat Costume for Kids 6-8 Years

4.0 out of 5 stars Great costume, but moults, 13 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Gorgeous and cuddly. Good size (4 to 6 fits my 5.5 yo nicely). Moults tiny hairs, which stick to the tongue and seem to be quite annoying. But, lovely costume nevertheless.


One Tiny Turtle

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely story/science book, 16 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: One Tiny Turtle (Paperback)
A lovely story/science book, telling the mysterious and wonderful life of the loggerhead turtle. My four year olds love it but I think it would please children quite a lot older too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 16 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Grandad's Island (Paperback)
This is a very charming story, with beautiful, joyful illustrations. The previous reviewer has written such an elegant and subtle review I hardly like to add to it, but I think it is worth saying that there is a sad element to to story, and I was very glad I had read it to myself before reading to my children.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very small plate., 2 Nov. 2014
A very charming set, but the plate in (both of) mine is smaller than the one pictured and will not hold a meal, even for a toddler.
