Campbell Books - Selection of the Range.

A couple of weeks ago, Jack was lucky enough to receive a large selection of books from Campbell Books. 
'Sharing and talking about books with babies and toddles is an important step in their journey to becoming life-long readers.'

In January, Campbell Books did a re-launch with a new logo and livery and on all front-list titles. With this new launch it is now even easier to ensure that the right books reach the right children. All of Campbell's books have a child-centered sense of fun and are educational. 
'From books with wheels to books that roar and splat, Campbell's 2014 titles are perfect for young, inquisitive fingers and minds.'

Within our selection we received three books from the Busy range, a noisy book and a book to celebrate special relationships. 

Busy Books.
The Busy Books series is one of Campbell's best-selling ranges, and in celebrating with the 10th anniversary, the series has been refreshed with new text, covers and livery. 
From this range we received Busy Garage, Busy Railway and Busy Farm. 
Jack has really enjoyed these books, they are a thick cardboard, which is perfect for Jack to read alone, and each book has little interactive tabs, such as pull tabs. None of the books in this range have a particular story line, however they are very interactive. Each page of the book asks a simple question such as 'How many pigeons do you see?' 'Can you find an orange suitcase?' These were perfect ways to teach Jack about different little illustrations you often don't look for in a book, whilst also encouraging counting and colours in a fun way. 

Axel Scheffler's Noisy Jungle.
Axel Scheffler is a name you may remember as he is the illustrator of the Gruffalo. Noisy Jungle again features amazing illustrations which are very eye catching to the reader. There are ten animals to count and six jungle sounds, Jack is only just beginning to learn to count, so adding the concept of noise is a fantastic way to keep him interested and involved. 
The detail which is included within this book is amazing, with Jacks love of animals too it was perfect for us. We had great fun counting the animals together and encouraging Jack to count more.

My Mummy Says.
This is the first book in a new series from Campbell Books about special relationships in children's lives. My Mummy Says is a simple story, which follows the encounters of two mums and making new friends, it shoes the special relationship that exists between mummies and their children. I found this a really good book, and reinforced all the little things mummies do which are often taken for granted. Jack enjoyed this book and the illustrations throughout.
My Mummy Says is written by Justine Smith, and illustrated by Angie Stevens. Angie's illustrations are lovely and remind me of old books from when I was younger. Angie often posts illustrations upon her blog which you can find here, I'm sure you will be impressed. 

Please Note: We received this selection of books for the purpose of this review. All opinions are my own and not influenced in anyway.
