Mommy and Mikel Go For a Walk Paperback – September 27, 2007
Top Customer Reviews
For an adult, reading this book to a child, there are a couple of messages here that Ms. Morris gets across without sermonizing. First, the time spent together between a child and parent is precious, that the memories produced will last a lifetime. Equally importantly, a parent will be reminded that they are their child's first and most important teacher.
This is a story told in a simple way by author Ann Morris, based on her own experience with her son Mikel, that will surely make readers smile, whether recalling episodes of the rides with their parents, or, as parents recalling the experiences with their children, or both!
Besides having colourful illustrations done by Avery Liell-Kok that tend to attract the attention of children, this story, which begins with a daily walk in the park, leads us through the adventure of knowledge and learning things that could be very common for adults, but that make great discoveries for children: from the name of a bird, to solving a mystery.
This is definitely an excellent reading choice to share with our little ones.
Mommy and Mikel going for a walk, but Mikel didn't want to put some warm clothes on. But later on, he was glad that Mommy brought his coat. It was cold.
On their way they find lots of thing to look at. One of them was goldfinch with yellow and black feathers.
Next they saw a field with white flowers. Mommy explained they are daisies. Next they come across poison ivy. since Mikel didn't know what they were, he wanted to touch them. But mommy just held him up to do so. she had to explain, what they are.
Next they came to a river. And here they saw an brown animal swimming in the river. They didn't know what it was, so decided to go home, get mums car and would drive to the library.
Arriving there, they looked up many books to find out what animal they had seen.
Will they find out what animal it was they saw swimming in the river?
A great book for children and to learn about nature and animals and where you can find out what you are looking for.
Excellent done with great and colorful drawings. Well done Ann Morris.
