The lovely folks at Parragon sent D another book in the same series as the dinosaurs encyclopaedia we previously reviewed, this one is called Sharks : discover their underwater world. We have had this for a while now, and I do feel a bit guilty about taking our time to get this post published, but the wear on the books spine shows how much he likes this book. His little brother, Jen, is not a fan as he is afraid of sharks, and the photos are brilliant quality. So clear in fact we’ve had to ban D from taking this book on car journeys as he was making Jen cry.
Because we are book buddies the lovely people at Parragon books send us a book a month. This time it isn’t strictly a book, its more a craft set with a book of instructions. Dinogami is dinosaur origami. Its cute and at first I thought it looked more like a thing for Jen (age 5) and I to do together. But after page one of the instructions I quickly realised this was a mission for D (age 11) and Me. It comes with 20 sheets of pre-printed paper, so your dinos eyes and wings and things are all in the right places.
As a Parragon Book Buddy my sons receive books to review, however this time it wasn’t suitable for my sons so I am giving it away on this post. I checked Parragon don’t mind. It’s lovely, but it’s just not boyish! If I got this as a gift 25 years ago I would have loved it. The giveaway is via Rafflecopter, and only runs a few days as I hope it will be with the winner before Christmas. http://www.parragon.com/uk/books/detail/scrapbook-made-by-me a Rafflecopter giveaway Shared on Loquax.
