New one review witch 2017

Love the Stationery in Your Classroom is a short children’s book. It might state that it has 18 pages, but, only twelve of these are the actual book. It is medium in size at just over 20cm² and very light-weight.

The book introduces us to the stationery items found in a classroom – I wouldn’t say they were all Stationery, as I don’t class a desk, chair, nor a library book as stationery, but I’ll gloss over that. The stationery items are all fed up with being used incorrectly by the children.

From the children peeling the crayons clothes off and breaking their heads off, to the pencils being used as swords instead of for handwriting. One night they decide something needs to be done and Mrs. Whiteboard knows just the thing.

I can’t say I loved this book, nor hated it. There are a few things that I think would help this work better as a children’s book and one of them is the font. It is written in a font that is close together, small in size, and hard to read. A child needs the letters to be easily identifiable, this font doesn’t do that.

The ending could also have been better. I get what the author was trying to do but it felt more of a threat to the children than trying to teach them how to use the stationery correctly.

Overall, Love The Stationery In Your Classroom is a fun little short book that has some lovely pastel colour illustrations that fill the pages and I’m sure kids will love thinking that the stationery in their classroom comes alive when they go home.
