Kiwi Corkers: The Ugly Hatchling product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsHe had short fat legs, a long thin beak, hairy brown feathers, and tiny little stubs where his wings should be. The pukeko parents looked at each other and shook their heads. What an odd-looking chick!

Both myself and my children were excited to see that we had been selected to review The Ugly Hatchling. In this household we love to read and our bookshelves are overflowing. I found this book simply delightful to read to my three young children. My children are aged 5 years old, 3 years old, and nearly 1 year old. The cover of the book is nice and simple and the Kiwi chick is very eye-catching and cute, along with four Pukekos flying. I love the Kiwi Corkers series as they showcase to children a NZ spin on classic stories, so knew this book would not disappoint.

We snuggled upon the couch and started to read. The first thing we noticed was how artistic the illustrator is. My daughter thought the stoat running with the egg could be a rugby player the way he held it hehe.The author has managed to use a lot of descriptive detail so while reading you can use your imagination along with looking at the vivid pictures. When I asked my children what they thought was the best part of the story for them, their response was the part where the kiwi goes into the house. My son thought it was funny when the kiwi found some items with kiwis on them and called the people 'two of the strangest-looking birds.' I personally enjoyed when the kiwi was released into the thick forest and found a kiwi friend so he wasn't lonely.

Overall this is a cute, friendly story to read and I would recommend for all young children. This would be a wonderful book for a child who is learning to read as the words are reasonably simple. This has become our new favourite bedtime story.
