I wasn’t sure what to expect at first but as soon as I turned to that first page and those words just slipped so easily off my tongue, I knew straight away that this book would be prefect for a story time session.  I had visions of laughing children, each child engaging with the pictures and getting excited about what would happen at the end.

The book is utter chaos and fun (I think I may have mentioned that a few times already), and the illustrations have so much for a child to look at and talk about which is great for early literacy skills.

I can see this book becoming a favourite of many children and storytellers because the words flow so easily and you just want to know what is coming next in all the craziness.  The book touches on feelings and helping people, with lines like “temper soaring” and ” friendship mending. Lion Hugging”.

The book uses rhyming words which assists children with the development of their reading, for example if you are rhyming words like “chase is ending, friendship mending” the child is able to see the relationship between the two words ending and mending.  This assists with learning several words easier because of the same ending e.g. ing.

I highly recommend this book, its fun, its chaotic, its fast paced, and its a fiesta to the ears and eyes.

I received this book from the publisher Peachtree Publishers in exchange for an honest review.  This does not affect the content of my review.
