Not much going on, on the pages.
on 5 November 2012
I'd not heard of the Zoe and Beans books before so this is the first one for me. My grandson is 3 and a bit and says he has seen these books in the library. He likes books that have pictures and a story, but wasn't interested in this one at all. I have to say that personally, I felt there was a lot of book and not much going on, on each page.
The story is about a load of animals that start appearing in Zoe's garden, including a parrot that Zoe thinks is calling her Oscar as it keeps saying "hello Oscar" until she finds out that the owner of all the pets is in fact the curly haired boy from next door who is called Oscar.
As a plus for the book, it does introduce children to different animals (a chameleon) and as Zoe wanted to feed the animals she had to find out about the chameleon so what did she do? She used the internet - ingenious.
