    A really lovely book about the characters in beloved storybooks like Alice in Wonderland and Charles Dickens, to help save a bookshop from closing down The book is ideal for EYFS and year 1 children because they will easily be able to make text text connections with the different characters involved in the story They might also connect the book to something like the Lego movie where characters from all different worlds work together to solve a problem and help someone The book highlights the A really lovely book about the characters in beloved storybooks like Alice in Wonderland and Charles Dickens, to help save a bookshop from closing down The book is ideal for EYFS and year 1 children because they will easily be able to make text text connections with the different characters involved in the story They might also connect the book to something like the Lego movie where characters from all different worlds work together to solve a problem and help someone The book highlights the importance of using your imagination and how powerful it can be I would explore this with children to encourage them to be great readers and read for pleasure Further, my class would write their own stories about their own favourite book characters coming to life and having an adventure together

    Deze heb ik zelf gelezen maar uiteindelijk niet voorgelezen Eerder lazen we wel samen van Michael Foreman War Peas en toen schreef ik dat het een beetje gedateerd voelde, wel leuk en superorigineel, maar tegelijk niet helemaal op maat van kinderen en eerder op maat van de volwassen voorlezer Ik schreef toen ook kinderboeken zijn de afgelopen decennia zo ontzettend veel gegroeid, wat een fijne tijd om kind in te zijn en voor te lezen Anyhow, The Little Bookshop is van 2015, dus ik was Deze heb ik zelf gelezen maar uiteindelijk niet voorgelezen Eerder lazen we wel samen van Michael Foreman War Peas en toen schreef ik dat het een beetje gedateerd voelde, wel leuk en superorigineel, maar tegelijk niet helemaal op maat van kinderen en eerder op maat van de volwassen voorlezer Ik schreef toen ook kinderboeken zijn de afgelopen decennia zo ontzettend veel gegroeid, wat een fijne tijd om kind in te zijn en voor te lezen Anyhow, The Little Bookshop is van 2015, dus ik was benieuwd naar hoe zijn stijl veranderd was Maar heel eerlijk gezegd vond ik het alsnog veel te uitdagend voor kinderen Keigoeie en mooie referenties naar a andere verhalen en b wereldproblemen en zo, maar aan deze 6 jarige gaat dat nog wat voorbij als het niet fijnzinnig genoeg gebeurt Pas op, dit is absoluut geen slecht boek Maar idealiter zou het verhaal wat aangepast moeten worden door de voorlezer, en we hadden gewoon genoeg andere hapklare boeken in huis Zoals gezegd interessante tijden om voor te lezen deze dagen

    A tale of imagination and courage comes out in full throttle when a bookstore is getting closed down by the mayor to make a super centre To help make a stand characters from favourite children s books come to life from the pages.

    Read this for storytime at work It seems like I m not following the crowd here but I thought this lacked the childhood magic.


  7. Claire Claire says:

    This is a great story about supporting your local bookshop I loved how it was the workers who started the downfall of the big fancy store because they were reading stories to their kids.

    This is a rather sweet little story about saving a bookshop from being bulldozed to make way for a superstore It s done with the aid of Origami Girl, the newspaper boy s friend, who brings to life all the children s favourite book characters, and the army they form eventually succeeds in its plan.My grandchildren loved recognising the storybook characters and voted this book Cool

    Beautiful illustrations Powerful story How can I not give 5 stars to a book that is all about the wonder of books, and how they can give hope My youngest son, when asked about which part of the book he d enjoyed, said he loved that the bookshop stayed open
