Walker Books recently sent me a package of books, including this one called Migloo’s Day. The book is a riot of colour and illustration as it follows a cute little dog, Migloo, as he explores the town on his day out.
Miss E LOVES this book, and I mean LOVES it. She is scarily good at spotting Migloo – often finding him before I can. She likes to take this book with us when we go to watch Mr D’s swimming lesson and she will sit and follow Migloo through the pages, pointing out the things she can see.
Search and find books like this are a real hit with her and this is no exception. There is a lot to take in on these pages, and despite the number of times we have read it together, we find more things to spot and hunt out each time.
The illustrations are lovely and are almost toy like. There are a diverse range of characters that can be located throughout the book as Migloo wanders around town, in the fire station, the school and garage.
This is a book that will last a long time – Miss E is just two years old and loves this, as both the children become independent readers there is much more they can take from it. The range of scenes it covers, as mentioned above is excellent and towards the end there is a huge spread that folds out – much to Miss E’s delight!
This is a lovely book; I am sure Miss E will have many more hours looking through this and I look forward to reading this with her as she develops her reading skills over the coming years.
