Our June Books

Both me and the kids love to read, especially my little girl, so I have decided to start a monthly post showing you what we have read. All of the books in this months post are ones that I have been sent out to review. But normally a lot are our own or from the local library.

Animal Doctors

The book is beautifully written by Angie Trius and Mark Doran both doctors in veterinary science and illustrated by Julio Antonio Blasco. It’s a book about how animals heal themselves. There are fun facts about 14 different animals and how they look after themselves with a fun fold-out information panel on how their remedy works for them. The kids really loved this book and even learnt about some new animals they never knew about, like the Blue Jay and the Tegu Lizard. The hardback book is priced at RRP £10.95 and is released today (4th July 2016). The pages are really nice thick quality and the illustrations are great. We really liked this book and it’s a great buy for any animal fans. Buy from Amazon

The Dinosaur that Pooped the Bed

This is written by Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter, which I have only just found out are from the boy band Mcfly. This isn’t the first one of these books we have read. We have also read The Dinosaur that Pooped Christmas and The Dinosaur that pooped the Past. My kids love these books and think they are absolutely hilarious. The book is RRP £6.99 and was released last year on 27th August 2015. Buy from Amazon

Passports to Peril

This is the first in a series of books and this one is called Passports to Peril : Gwendoline’s Travels : Book 1 by Terry Ray Hall. The books front cover is very basic looking and not one my kids would wont to pick out. The story is told in a rhyme, the rhyming is a bit dodgy in places and sometimes I had to re-read it to make sense of it. The illustrations are very comic bookish, but the kids didn’t think they were too great. This was released in May 2016 by Cat and Girl Publishing. Buy from Amazon

These books are from the number 1 pregnancy, baby & toddler magazine, Mother & Baby. The Pregnancy Milestone books starts with the pre-conception, with advice on what’s best diet for you, are you emotionally ready and understand your menstrual cycle. There are also chapters on each trimester, preparing for the birth, what to expect at the birth and after the birth. The Baby Milestone book gives advice on looking after and caring for your baby and what to expect through each stage of their life until your baby is 12 months old.

  1. Some great titles here love the soundly of the dinosaur that pooped in the bed -not heard about these before but sound great fun

  2. Fellow book lover here and mum to three little bookworms. Lots here that we haven’t read. Like the look of the Dinosaur That Pooped the Bed. Perhaps a good one for potty training? #KCACOLS

  3. Love the sound of Little Mouse, definitely one that I’ll look out for and that I know Fin and Livvy would enjoy.

  4. I love the look of Animal Doctors – and the Little Mouse one. When I was a kid I loved anything with mice in, though if I had actually seen one in the flesh I would probably have run screaming! xD

    Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday!
