Book Review - Guinness World Records 2019

~ Posted on Tuesday, September 18, 2018 at 12:50 PM ~

As a busy mum with 4 kiddos between 1.5year-old to 9-years old, I have started cutting down on doing product reviews to focus on our coming 5th kiddo (due Oct 2018), childcare and family life, home cooking, education, helping with hubby's administration site of the business and sharing informational articles on my FB fan page so I am only accepting and prioritizing products that can fit into our family dynamics (especially books on parenting or educational stuff, family products, something along those genre)! Reading is my passion and coupled with books that are of parenting, children, family or religion or educational genre, all the more I gotta say yes!

We received the "Guinness World Records 2019" book which I had intended for our older 3 kiddos age ranging from almost 5 to 10 years old to use for their knowledge learning and English reading materials. I like that the book is categorised into their respective sections - making it easier for me to quickly jump into certain category for quick reading.

Certain topics like 'Continents' is quite practical and relatable to our kiddos since they do learn about the continents in the world. It is always great to find out more interesting facts on top of what they have learned before.

There are also some pages towards the end of the book where you can try out at home. If you are keen to take up the challenge, you can get the instruction and guideline from http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/products/books/guinness-world-records-2019/tryathome

Overall, this is a fun and educational book to own especially if your child (or even yourself) likes to read and find out more about the odd and interesting things happening all around the world!

Book Review - Reading Success for Minecrafters: Grades 3-4

~ Posted on Friday, March 23, 2018 at 11:39 AM ~

I have been cutting down on doing product reviews towards the last quarter of year 2016 to prepare for our coming 4th kiddo who was born in early November 2016 and I am currently only prioritizing reviewing products that can fit into our family dynamics (especially books on parenting or homeschooling stuff, family products, something along those genre)

However, as busy as I am with 4 kiddos, home cooking, taking care of hubby's administration site of the business and swamped up with managing my FB page and blog, I just can't say no to reviewing good books! Reading is my passion and coupled with books that are of parenting, children, family or religion or educational genre, all the more I gotta say yes!

We received the "Reading Success for Minecrafters: Grades 3-4" book which I had intended for our 9-year-old boy to use for his English reading materials. I have been giving him reading comprehension workbook to do everyday and this is something similar to what he has been doing so far, except, it is of his favourite Minecraft theme! Fun + learning = win-win!

The book covers topic like prefixes, suffixes, synonyms, antonyms, reading comprehension where the child reads the short stories given and look for main ideas and details, identifying cause and effect, and sequencing and more!

There are also answer keys at the back of the pages for reference.

Overall, this is a fun and educational book to own especially if your child is an avid Minecraft fans.

I totally recommend this book!

Lucie Goose

Title: Lucie Goose
Author: Danny Baker,‎ Pippa Curnick (Illustrator)
Publisher: Hodder Children's Books; 01 edition (October 5, 2017)
ISBN: 1444937391
Paperback: 18 pages

Description from the product page:

"Lucie Goose lives all alone in a house at the edge of the woods. She has never met or spoken to another animal of any sort until... a wolf, bear and lion turn up on her doorstep and go Rraaaarrrrrr! She should start screaming. She should run away. But Lucie Goose isn't very good at being scared. What will she do?"

We received the "Lucie Goose" book which I had intended for our 4.5-year-old girl to read. She is an emerging reader at this point, still need to be read to and can understand simple words. So far, she has been regularly insisting I read this book to her before she takes her afternoon naps. I read to her from front to end and we enjoy the storyline.

This is a funny and entertaining book about making friends and how all things work out well in the end. I like that Lucie Goose is not afraid of the things unseen / unknown and I reminded our girl that just because we have never seen or know something does not mean we have to fear it. I also taught our girl to be friendly like Lucie Goose and to always be polite and maintain good manners.

Lucie Goose

Overall, this is a really nice book to own.

A funny and quirky book about friendships and having good manners!

I totally recommend this book!
