As I have mentioned previously, we love books and think reading offers so many benefits so it will not be a surprise to you that we are championing another book. This one is in time for Christmas! As well as this, we are offering one lucky person the chance to win a £25 Amazon e-gift card to allow you to buy some books of your own (or whatever you fancy spending it on!). This is our very first giveaway so we’re excited about this. If it’s successful, we might run some more giveaways in the future!
So the book…
As you can see, the book is hilariously titled ‘Father Christmas Needs a Wee’. I was first introduced to this book when I was teaching and I needed a book which would introducing counting backwards. This book, being near to Christmas, was perfect.
The book follows Father Christmas on his rounds delivering presents. Counting to 10, the book begins to outline how many drinks he has drank which results in him desperately needing a wee.
Unfortunately, in his haste he forgets to leave the presents so he has to retrace his steps. This is where counting backwards comes in.
I won’t spoil the rest of the story but Father Christmas has a hellish time trying to make it to the toilet in time!
The book is extremely attractive as each page is filled with colour and illustrations. The illustrations also display a row of the given item which allows the children to practice counting them, further enforcing their counting skills.
What stood out the most for me is that the book was larger than average and the text was displayed well. The author has included both the numeral and the number word which is extremely useful to children, i.e. 5 and five.
I also especially liked that there was a page at the front for the children to personalise the book.
When reviewing, I try hard to not get too carried away with what I love and try to think if there are any areas for improvement and I really struggled to find any. My one disappointment is that Little One isn’t old enough to enjoy it properly but it’s on his book shelf and I can’t wait to read it with him when he’s a little older!
Do you want to own the book? We’re giving away a £25 e-gift voucher for Amazon which you can use to buy your own (or just spend it on whatever you fancy!). If you can’t wait to purchase the book then you can buy it here.
