This is a collaborative post.
Over the past few weeks, Libby’s reading has come on in leaps and bounds. Not least because she’s finally managing to read things she finds interesting. In fact, we’ve been reviewing the Disney Animal World books and they’re so engaging that even I’m learning something.
Disney Animal World Books
I was surprised how impressed I was with the Disney Animal World books. Because they’re Disney, I expected them to be more like a comic book with a cartoon format. I thought they would be based purely on favourite stories, rather than anything informative. In fact, I couldn’t have been more wrong.
There’s the perfect balance between stories featuring Disney characters and incredibly informative animal facts. The stories are full of bright cartoon pictures of the characters, and they pop up on the factual pages as well. There are also gorgeous, high quality photos of the animals that are covered in the book. Each one focusses on just a few animals, with some fascinating facts about them. Did you know that tree frogs live in groups called an army? Me neither.
Disney Animal World Toys
With every issue of Disney Animal World, children receive one or more little toys. The toys collectively make up a Safari Playset. Each figure is relevant to the book it comes with, so they can play with it whilst learning about that animal. The girls have loved building up their collection, and take great delight in acting out stories with their characters. Plus, isn’t their hair hilarious on the trampoline??
If you subscribe to the books on their website, there are loads of other treats for children to look forward to as well as a regular delivery of books. With the second delivery, they receive a storage box for their books. The fourth gives them a safari playmat, the sixth an adorable backpack and the eighth a storage box for their animals.
