Little Man has been lucky enough to receive a few books from the Salariya book company, so today I’ll introduce them to you along with giving one of you the chance to win all three of them…
He has received:
This spiral-bound flip-book lets children have hours of fun assembling a variety of outlandish robots from everyday items like laptops and musical instruments to make them look the way they want. The robots can be mixed and matched into 32,768 different combinations, so the possibilities are enormous – there could be a robot with a typewriter for a head, another with an accordion for a body or a third with screwdrivers for legs!
Dinosaur Sticker Activity Book
Introducing a fantastic new dinosaur activity book that will entertain children for hours! The title contains an exciting world for children to get lost in, filled with many enormous dinosaurs, from terrifying tyrannosaurs to swooping pterodactyls. Children will love to complete these fun games and fill the scenes with stickers.
Wipe-Clean: Dot-To-Dot Safari
Follow the dots for fun … over and over again! On every page–even the cover–kids can trace over the dotted outlines . . . and then wipe them clean and start again. With brightly colored pictures to entice them, it’s an easy, playful way for children to learn pen control and lay the foundations for handwriting skills. The pen’s included! Come take a drawing safari–and meet and draw all kinds of fun animals in the wild. Along the way, children will get to know big cats like the cheetah and lion, a friendly elephant, a graceful gazelle, an ostrich, and many other appealing creatures.
All three books have captured Little Man’s attention in different ways and supported his learning.
The first one that he was drawn to was the Mixed Up Robots book. He understood how this one works straightaway as he has a similar book with farm animals in it which he loves. This one is all about fun, creativity and imagination. It’s also given us plenty of opportunities to talk about the different features of the robots, including chatting about colours and shapes.
The Dinosaur Sticker Activity Book is crammed full of activities and has kept Little Man and his big sister busy for quite some time. There are push-out dinosaurs to slot together as well as drawing, a maze, spot the difference, counting and of course, the stickers pages. The stickers pages themselves are a bit different, too, as they include fossil timelines and egg hatching amongst other things. The stickers are bright and come away without tearing, which is always a plus!
I’d have to say that the wipe clean dot to dot book has probably been the biggest success for us. Little Man is not really a fan of putting pen to paper, largely I’ve always thought, because he is something of a perfectionist and doesn’t want to make a ‘mistake’. It’s a shame as this stops him from attempting things and holds him back. However, once he understood that this was wipe clean and he could simply wipe away ‘mistakes’ he was happy and keen to write. The wipe clean aspect has made a real difference to him wanting to have a go at writing and following lines and he’s been improving so much since he had this book, in both his ability and his willingness to do it. It’s been a pleasure to see him with this book.
I do have all 3 of these books up for grabs. To be in with a chance of winning the three of them, please enter using the rafflecopter below. The competition is open to UK entrants only and closes at 12am 12th September 2016. Good luck!
