All my life I have enjoyed books, whether I am the one reading or if someone is reading to me. I have passed my love of books onto my 3 young children, and the youngest two love snuggling up to have cuddles and stories. While browsing the KIWIreviews site I saw a couple of books that I thought would be perfect, I put my request in and eagerly waited. When the review box arrived I couldn't contain my excitement and quickly opened the box. I was especially thrilled to see a copy of 'Kiwi One and Kiwi Two' on top. I decided that would be our bedtime story that night.
The first thing that my children and I liked on the cover was how playful the illustrator has made the Kiwis look, the whole cover is colourful and eye-catching. Upon starting to read it became obvious that this was a story with a rhyming pattern- I personally love these kinds of stories as I tend to make them into a song. The illustrations throughout the book are vibrant and certainly catch your attention. My children were in hysterics as we read aloud about the cheeky Kiwis trying to wake the other animals, including another native bird, the Kereru. Throughout the book my children told me they had favourite characters, I liked how the book subtl6 helped teach them the names of some more native creatures. My children are aged 6, 4, and 2 years of age and this story kept them entertained from start to finish, the storyline flows nicely and it was the perfect length to be read as a bedtime story and has already become one of the most requested books we have in the bookcase.
I would recommend this book to families of young children that are wanting an easy to read, entertaining book that isn't too long. The vibrant colours throughout help stimulate the mind, and you see plenty of different animals as you read. I look forward to bringing this book along to our local playgroup to share with the other parents and children.
