Review: Have you Seen George's Glasses? by Richard Huber

This book is targeted towards children between 3-6 years of age. The story line is about a Giraffe that has glasses on his head but just can’t find them! George’s little adventure takes him around the world and asks individual animals ‘HAVE YOU SEEN MY GLASSES?’ The animals are all too busy and answer ‘NO’. George finally asks his sister GRACE who is slightly taller than him: ‘HAVE YOU SEEN MY GLASSES’ and she replies ‘THEY’RE ON TOP OF YOUR HEAD SILLY!’. As a father with two girls Amelia and Daisy (8 and 5 years of age) I enjoy reading books to them. They appreciate simplicity and repetitiveness. These are the thoughts behind the book and I threw the kangaroo in because I’m Australian and moved to the UK in 2002.

Review: Awesome Animals Freaky Fish

Awesome Animals: Freaky Fish

We picked up this book from our public library.

Loved all the pictures and fun facts about different kinds of fish under the sea. My son kept saying to me "mom do not be scared they are not real." And of  course I had to tell him well yes they are. They all live under the ocean some further down than most. The pictures were so real it is hard to imagine that those type of animals actually live in the sea. Makes you wonder what is really under the sea that we haven't discovered yet. My son liked all of the fish and I am surprised he knew what some of them were I think that has to do with him watching Wild Kratts and other educational shows. If you enjoy fish but rather look at them from a distance then this is the book for you.
