This is a delightful, beautifully illustrated book with a simple story that will delight young children and give them a taste of the sites of London. Highly recommended for children ages two through five.
All in a handful of pages, with minimal text and cartoon penguins - a perfect size for toddlers.
My son is 4 and he enjoyed this, he wants to visit London himself, so on each page I was asked to talk about what we were seeing - the London Eye, Buckingham Palace, etc. It will take a parent willing to talk about them though, the book provides nothing other than their name and what the sights look like.
I liked the simplicity and the basic sights covered, though as a native Brit, thought the umbrella and rain a little stereotyped (though yes, with some reason!). And a few more sights would have been good (St Pauls, Tower of London, Thames, Globe, Monumen), but I was glad the Underground (Tube) was included.
A good series, with a likeable protagonist. We liked the inclusion of the mobile phones that Tovi uses to invite his friends on holiday with. Made it feel more modern.
One for preschoolers, possibly as young as 2 and definitely good before a trip to the capital.
With thanks to the author for the copy, sent for review purposes.
In this outing Tovi and his friends are off to London because it’s raining and since they had nothing to do. However their plans get ruined because they found rain in London as well. Instead of feeling discouraged they decided to make the best of things by seeing as much of London as they can in the time they’ll be spending there. Once again the author has subliminally communicated to her young readers an important message about getting disappointed and to just make the best of things.
While the illustrations match the narrative wonderfully, the author has thrown in some British English like, “ask them round.” This book should delight its beginner readers and in the end I’ve decided to give Ms. Rossiter 5 STARS for her endeavor in this volume of the Tove the Penquin series.
Children will love to pour (pun intended) through the pages looking for so many wonderful discoveries – especially the little ladybug who accompanies them on their trip. You will love the look of delight on your children’s face as they discover more and more exciting things on each page, from the always present ladybug to the little earthworm.
Learning about a new city is not the only experience that Ms. Rossiter has in store for her excited readers – they also learn about the culture (transportation, tea, a little history and friendship. Another satisfying ending to another great book in the series.
Janina Rossiter loves three things: design, France and her little family.
She has lived in Germany, England and now France. From her background in design and illustration and the arrival of her daughter, the natural progression was to become an illustrator and writer for children. Be sure to watch her, she will become a force in children’s literature.
