5.0 out of 5 stars A must addition to your little reader's library
By G B. on 27 August 2020
1.Get up and presentation-
Big book. Thick,medium glossy pages. Sturdily bound. Suitable to endure the handling of a 4-5 yrs. Lovely colorful pictures to understand the story and attract them.
2. About 30 pages long, funny story . More pictures, less word- perfect for a budding little reader .
3. Rhyming lines. Simple enough, to be understandable, yet very matured classy language, enriching enough to build their vocabulary.
4. Pictures play integral part in the story. Very effective and geographically accurate.
5. Perfect delivery from Amazon. Original version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great way to introduce complex vocabulary
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 18 January 2021
My little lad and I are total Julia/Axel fans. The Gruffalo’s Child is not just a story book but a great way to introduce children to complex vocabulary. This book is the fun sequel that continues the story of the Gruffalo. My little one was super excited to read it because he loved the Gruffalo and wanted to see where the story continued.

I love the book because it gives me an excellent example to teach my child to always listen to his parents. Children will do the exact opposite of what they are told. When the Gruffalo tells his child not to go out to find the horrifying mouse, it is inevitable that the Gruffalo’s child will go off on an adventure to hunt the mouse.

The best part of the book for my little one has to be the wonderful illustrations by Axel Schaffer. My child loved the Christmas feel with all the winter snow. I thought the moral of the story was great and it teaches a strong life lesson of never being afraid of Goliath and there is the possibility for David to outsmart him. This is a great lesson to teach children as they are small, like mice, and shouldn't be afraid to challenge when unsure.

I could read this book over and over again and me and my little one would not get bored at all.
