BookBabblers Reviewers Recommend Maverick Books

Two great reviews came up over the weekend from BookBabblers.  One for the Fearsome Beastie and the other for Please Bear’s Birthday.

The Fearsome Beastie – reviewed by Wendy

“…A useful message for children to be wary of friendly talking strangers…The illustrations in this book are colourful and cartoonish depicting a spooky beastie and children with frightened faces in a fun sort of way. This artwork does a wonderful job of working with the rhyme to ensure a fun scariness that my children loved.”  Read more

Please Bear’s Birthday – reviewed by Wendy

“We have previously read Nice Bear Naughty Bear so my children were very pleased to receive Please Bears Birthday and instantly recognised the nice and naughty bears… The illustrations are in a lovely watercolour style and very illustrative of the rhyme.

This is a lovely book to read to children and it is also a great way of discussing manners and my children use the term nice bear or naughty bear now when talking about behaviour.”  Read more
