My children absolutely love these books! The eldest (8 years old) really enjoys reading the story to the youngest (5 years old) and doing fun commentator voices. The books are really colourful and the kids adore the artwork, very expressive animals.
At the start of the books you get a fact file about each character taking part and a bit of information about the sport itself (I’m no sporting expert but I think these facts are actual Olympic rules).
The animal characters then start the sporting events (swimming all at once, trampolining one at a time) and each character has their little bit of story line, then the book finishes on the podium announcing 1st, 2nd and 3rd.
The books are perfect length for a “read together” book and certainly kept my children’s interest for the length of the entire book and have nice big words so older children can practise their reading too. The books are aimed at 3-7 year olds and are perfect for this age range.
These are really lovely books and the children have really enjoyed them. They are currently available from the Quack and Field website here and at the moment they have 30% discount on them. I am sure it won’t be long before they are available in high street stores.
