‘We loved it. Buy it!’ From Baby to Brontë reviews Froggy Day!

We’ve just spotted a lovely review for Froggy Day by Heather Pindar with illustrations by Barbara Bakos at From Baby to Brontë:

This is a funny, silly story and we loved it. The play-on-words works perfectly, and there’s lots of onomatopoeia and speech to read out in funny voices. We’ll definitely be reading this again, and I’ll be taking it in for my new class at some point! Buy it! (Resisting the urge to say ‘hop to it’….)’

‘A great book’ Fab review for Yuck! Said the Yak at From Baby to Brontë

We’ve just spotted a wonderful review for Yuck! said the Yak by Alex English with illustrations by Emma Levey at From Baby to Brontë:

We really enjoyed this story… I like the way that yak turns out not to be a fussy eater, actually, in the end. He’d just been offered the wrong things. He points out that all yaks like grass, and Alfie’s offers, though well-intentioned, were ill-informed. It’s a good lesson for us sometimes, when we think we know best for our children or pupils, to remember not to push or own preferences and assumptions onto others. Sometimes we need to ask the questions and listen rather than just giving what we think is best. We’re all different, right?

A great book. Thanks for the choice, Daddy!’
