The Pop-Up Farm

  • Publisher: Campbell Books Ltd
  • Pages: 16
  • Part of a series: No
  • Summary: A little mouse goes its way over the farm. She meets many farm animals including the cat.
  • Review: I still love the story of Old MacDonald and his farm (Book: Old MacDonald had a farm) and the funny song we all know. But I was searching for an other very simple book, for children, who are very new in learning english or for whom it is very hard to understand english books. So I found this book „The  Pop-Up Farm“ and I like it very much. It is much action in it and it has got a funny little story – I love this mouse. And it was fun to discover the pages ans look for the little mouse. So it is perfect in my opinion and so I can recommend it to all of you.

Review: Spooky sleep-out

Sesame Street – Spooky sleep-out

sppoky sleep out

  • Publisher: Holiday House Inc
  • Pages: 32
  • Part of a series: Yes, there are many books of the people in Sesame Street.
  • Summary: Elmo and his friends are excited about their very first sleep-out. But then it get more sookier then they have expected it would be.
  • Review: I found this book at a flee market  and was very happy about it. In my opinion it is a wonderful book to talk about crazy noises in the night especial when you sleep or walk outside. Maybee it can help that children are not so much afraid any more because they learn that normally the spooky noises have simply explanations like an owl ore leafs. Elmo and his friends let us participate in their experiences what is wonderful like the whole story is wonderful, too. I am sure many kids will love it and lear english without noticing it and on topic they fight against fear in the night. I can recommend it to teachers,parents ore other people, who like to read easy english books with their kids.

  • Part of a series: Nö
  • Summary: Rebecca hates Pumpkins because, when she was little she always has to eat them the whole day. But then when she has become older a pumpkin even falls on her yard and she has to mange it.
  • Review: I found this book at a flee market and I knew immediately that I had to by it, even if I only knew the cover. Now I have read the story I know it is great not only for Halloween, it is a story, which could be wonderful I many topics like, harvest, vegetables, chances, mistakes, talking about the past and how things can become better than they seem at the beginning. I love Rebecca and her way to manage the problem with the pumpkin ist great even if it does not work so well. The end ist so wonderful – I like it so much… I am sure children will love this story, too. Not only because of the wonderful content but because of the beautiful pictures and last but not leaf because of Rebecca and her cat Estelle. And maybe that book helps even that people begin to see a food or thing, they hate, in a new way and give it a second chance. So I can recommend to all people – it is a wonderful book.

  • Review: Wen have april now and so I think weather is a perfekt topic for young english learners. I love this book because of the wonderful pictures and the easy story – children can lear to ask the question „What is the weather like today?“ very easily and discover the answers. A very nice idea is, that the girl alway is the same, there are little cubes in the pages in which her face always appears after you turn the page when the has asked about the weather again. I will use it in my english class and can only recommend it to english-teachers and adults of you children – it is so nice and perfekt to talk about the weather with children.

They like to look at books and learn new topics better and with much more fun. So I was very happy, when I found this wonderful book. I am sure, my children will love it too. Especial the pop-up and pull-the-tab elements make it so funny to explore and the mouse and it cat-problem even more. I can only recommend it to other readers, teachers and parents.
