Parragon Book Buddies January

We were sent a really brilliant book at the end of January as a part of the Parragon Book Buddies Scheme.My Giant Fairy Tales Activity Book has four classic fairy tales in including: The Three Little Pigs, The Princess and the Pea, Hansel and Gretel and Little Red Riding Hood and is a brilliant children’s book.

Book 1

What I love most about this book is that you can just read the story and look at all the pictures as you go or you can read the story and complete activities as you read. Even once you’ve completed the activities, unlike other activity books, because you still have the story, you can keep reading and using the book again and again.

This is a lovely activity book that you can sit and do with your child. Lots of activity books and colouring books Isabella wants to do on her own (which is great for her independent play) but actually there is something quite lovely and relaxing about reading and doing these activities together. It also gives you ample opportunity to talk about the story and the characters; Isabella is full of questions about them all.

The activities range from colouring in, counting and number recognition, drawing and problem solving. They are short and snappy so even smaller ones don’t get bored before the activity is finished.

The illustrations are very bright, colourful and engaging with lots of little added details to make them fun to talk about too. The answers to the activities are also printed upside down at the bottom of each page so if you’re using the book for independent play, you can still give the answers without having followed what’s been happening.
