Both of my children are massive fans of Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom. Ms C likes to pretend she is Princess Holly while Mr K likes to be Ben. We also own a little castle magical playset, a toadstool playset and lunch box. Now and then, they like to watch it on TV or YouTube. When I told them that we are going to watch Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom live on stage, they were so excited! We had made a video months ago to enter the Ben and Holly competition. This is the video.
The first time that I came across The Gruffalo magnetic book was my son’s 3rd birthday present from my friend, AP. It looked so interesting and I heard a lot of good reviews from friends that it is a classic book for the whole family! We loved it so much that we followed up and bought the paperback and hardback editions!! I’m really glad that I did which will be explained soon!
The story is about a mouse who goes on an adventurous journey through the deep, dark woods and is confronted by Fox, Owl and Snake who all want to eat him. To save himself, he makes up a story about an imaginary Gruffalo to scare them off. It is a well-written book for children with rhyming text and fantastic illustrations by Axel Scheffler bringing the story to life. I would rate the book 5 out of 5 stars.
