Winnie the Pooh 123 Book
Winnie the Pooh 123 Book
by A. A. Milne
Edition: Hardcover

2.0 out of 5 stars OK for little ones... not for me, 12 May 2008
Who will help your children to learn their numbers from 0 - 20, which is very important, at an early age? Pooh Bear and his pals of course! With this book - it has the original illustrations of E H Shepard - your children can learn this key skill before a lot of children do in Nursery or Reception (Kindergarten). The book has got the numeral, the word form and a picture with the amount of the number (Does that even make sense to you? Because it doesn't really make sense to me - oh well! Let's just carry on) and it is bright and colourful. I would rate it 3/ 10 - or 4/ 10 if I was pushing it - because it is not appropriate for me.

Winnie the Pooh's ABC (Winnie the Pooh Board Books)

2.0 out of 5 stars OK for little ones... not for me, 12 May 2008
Pooh Bear and his great friends will help your little ones, particularly those who are aged between 0 - 4 years, learn the alphabet (from A to Z). The book has the letter written both in Capital and Lowercase and a word beginning with that letter - except X and Z which have a word with the letter in it. The letters which are at the start of the main characters names have the characters names unlike the other words which are easy to read and are the ones which can be sounded out; for example, L is for Letter (let-ter). I would rate this book 3/ 10 because this book is for very, very young children not ten year old kids.


Winnie the Pooh Colours
Winnie the Pooh Colours
by A.A. Milne
Edition: Board book

2.0 out of 5 stars Fab for little ones... not for me, 12 May 2008
Winnie the Pooh is probably best known by the TV series or the movie by Disney but did you know it started as a book by this initial author? A.A. Milne wrote the original stories of Pooh bear and his friends in the Hundred Acre Woods. This book is an adapted of some of adventures of the creatures of the famous forest. This book is about colours and the animals help young children to learn colours. I would rate this book 4/ 10 because it is a very nice book, it keeps the characters of the real author and the pictures are the same but it is not suitable for me.


Collins Gem - Party Games (Collins Gems)
Collins Gem - Party Games (Collins Gems)

3.0 out of 5 stars GREAT STUFF!, 12 May 2008
This book is only one of the Collins Gems books, oh and there are over 100 books in the series! This book, called Party Games, and is about over 200 different games: some that are old and some that are new. This book is small enough to fit in your pocket: you could be stuck in a train with nothing to do until you remember about this book; then you would have ideas to liven up parties, quieten down excited children and have fun at boring parties! I would definitely rate this book 7/ 10 and I can say that it has saved my brother's birthday and actually it saved my life as well!


Busy Little Postman - Ladybird Little Stories
Busy Little Postman - Ladybird Little Stories

The Little Postman doesn't know whom the very big parcel belongs to, which is delivered to the post office. It must be for someone whose birthday is today, he thinks. He sorts out all of the mail and gives it to the person that it belongs to - except the parcel. But it's not until the end of his round, he realises whose birthday - and big present - it is!
This book is brilliant for young children: the sentences are short and simple; the language that is uses is good for kids aged 4 - 6; the pictures are vivid, bright, large and eye catching. And last but not least, the story line is attention grabbing, pleasant and has a message: look around to check for a label and don't forget when it is your birthday!

4.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME!, 12 May 2008
This review is from: Magnus Powermouse (Paperback)
This book is hilarious! It is about a country mouse called Madeline who has some baby mice and one of them are a lot larger than the others...
The only bad thing about this book is that you cannot really tell if the author, Dick King-Smith, is talking about humans or mice - that was something that really confused towards the start of this book.


Bold Little Tiger (Little Animal Stories)
Bold Little Tiger (Little Animal Stories)
by Joan Stimson
Edition: Hardcover

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for little ones... not for me, 12 May 2008
Little Tiger always said something when he woke up in the morning; what he would say was: `I'm tall and I'm tough. I'm growly and gruff.' because that was what he thought that he was - he thought he was tall and tough, so he set off in search of adventure. After a while, when he discovered two tiny cubs trapped on a mountain ledge, he found his chance to prove himself...
This book is great for little kids: the text is short and simple; the vocabulary range is good for children 4 - 6; the pictures are bright, colourful, large and eye catching; last but not least, the story line is interesting, enjoyable and has a message: `your size doesn't matter, sometimes being small is helpful'.


How We Got Back into the Inter-schools Football Competition (Young Puffin Confident Readers)
How We Got Back into the Inter-schools Football Competition (Young Puffin Confident Readers)
by David Ross
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars great, 10 May 2008
This is like a follow up to the book `Why We Got Chucked Out of the Inter-Schools Football Competition'. It is about how they got back into the Inter-Schools Football Competition. But you are probably thinking how could they get back in? The answer: Billy Gray - and his mum! Billy was a new boy at Skimpole Street School and he was a naturally talented child at footy; unfortunately, he wouldn't join the team! He had to go to ballet lessons and he had to go on the same days as football practice was on! What will the team do when the Brown twins are kicked out of the group, Gary Sandford is injured on his ankle and coach has a bus driving test on the day they are having a friendly match against the school, Stapleton Road which caused them to get kicked out of the competition? Rating: 9/ 10.


Milly of the Rovers (Young Puffin Confident Readers)
Milly of the Rovers (Young Puffin Confident Readers)
by Harriet Castor
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, 10 May 2008
Harriet Castor has done a great job with this book. It is about a girl who is the captain of her school's football team. In the town she lives in, there are two schools and the new city council leader, Dr Pinch, says that there can only be one school and that the `smartest, sleekest and most streamlined school' would stay. Her school wasn't any of those things but Redlands, the other school, was...This story is hilarious, twisted, cleverly written and very enjoyable. It is a book that I would highly recommend to children, in particular girl football fans. I would rate this book 10/ 10 because it show that football is not only a boys game but a girls one to; it also teaches that working hard always has rewards; the final lesson is that you should think logically.

Skimpole Street First Eleven were a very bad football team. Follow all the players as they recap, in a diary form, what happened on the day they were kicked out of the Inter-Schools Football Competition. All of the boys give their point of view of what happened on that dreadful day, that dreadful, dreadful day. But the boys are not the only ones who have a say; a mother of one of the players (Gary Sandford's mother, called Mrs Carrie Sandford) and the Headmaster (Mr Gareth Watkins) also have a chapter each. The main bad events on the terrible day were:
* The referee got his bottom bit by Punter, the school caretaker's dog
* Mrs Sandford became a substitute and scored a goal but it didn't count
* Piano Legs was away with chicken pox so Wimpy J had to be in goal instead
* The Brown twins (Kevin and Norman) had a fight and had to go off side
* The team were chucked out of the Inter-Schools Football Competition

The main good events:
* The team got a new fitter and better coach (Mrs Sandford)

So as you can see, the day was terrible for the team!
