New one review witch 2017

My Town is written and Illustrated by Ingela P. Arrhenius and is a big book. If you want to know the exact measurements then it is 18″ x 13.3″. As I said it is big.

This delightful children’s book is filled with beautiful drawings that are about places and items you will find in a town – not every town will have all of these places such as an airport or port, but other items like the bakery, bookshop, streetlights, dogs etc you’ll find in every town.

The book doesn’t have many words, just the names of the items being shown. It is more of a picture book than a storybook. I think the idea behind the book is great and I feel that young children will love not only the drawings and discovering new places, they will also love the size of it too.

However, as a parent, I can’t say that I love big oversized books. They are hard to read unless you lie them flat on the floor and hard to store too – This definitely won’t fit on a bookshelf.

But hey, this is a book for little children and not adults, so I’m sure they will adore learning the names of the places and items. I can see this being a book that is read over and over again.
