The Class Book Review & Giveaway

Regular readers will know that I am a real bookworm and adore reading, it is something that I have loved ever since I was a small child. I am hoping that my little two children inherit my love of books as my eldest has no interest at all, I have been making such an effort to read to them often and buy them lots of books which they both love. Every afternoon we snuggle up on the sofa and read a book together, my one year old loves the pictures and my two and a half year old loves anything that rhymes.

So when I was recently sent a copy of 'The Class', a wonderfully illustrated children's book that teaches the alphabet whilst also being a rhyming book, I knew my children would love it. My one year old loves the illustrations and also seemed to enjoy the rhyming story as he sat still and listened to the story, instead of wriggling and constantly trying to grab the book. My two year old also loved this book as she goes to nursery and this book is set in a classroom so she enjoyed looking at the pictures.


The story is all about children in a classroom and each page has a different letter of the alphabet at the top and then a verse about a child in the class with a name beginning with that letter.

"Twenty-six children make up the class, each with their own personality, interests and dreams. Join them as they work their way through the alphabet and the school day."



 Each verse in the book also rhymes, making it a fun and engaging book for young children. I loved how the story helps children with the alphabet as obviously this is something I will be starting to teach my children as they get older. At the back of the book there is also a page filled with both upper and lower case letters of the alphabet, which again will help children to learn.


The book is paperback so I will have to ensure I keep it out of my little ones grasps as they are still at an age where they like to rip and colour in books. It is a lovely story that I can read with them and is also a book that a slightly older child would enjoy too.


You can buy this book from www.fishertonpress.co.uk and is also available to buy on Amazon with an RRP of £7.99.
