Big Little Hippo – Review and Give Away

I’ve recently sorted out all my kids books and donated a lot of the baby books. Now we still have tons of books but the Little Man was short of early reader books so I need to replenish his stock.

To start off I’ve been gifted a copy of Big Little Hippo which is great for young children. I’m also giving away three copies of this book in my latest competition.

Big Little Hippo
By Valeri Gorbachev
Little Hippo is the youngest in his family… and the smallest. Smaller than his parents and siblings. Smaller than his friends, too, from old Crocodile to giant Elephant. And even though everyone promises he’ll grow, Little Hippo doesn’t want to wait. He wants to be big RIGHT NOW! But when he helps a creature even tinier than himself, Little Hippo learns that it’s the size of his heart that counts most of all.

Available soon from GMC Group

The Little Man was able to read the book to me which is great practice for his reading. We loved the story of the little hippo, he was upset about being so small until he was helpful to a smaller creature and was called big. It shows that it’s not about size after all.
The book is hardback with a dust cover. The illustrations are really enticing and we enjoyed them very much.

If you would like to win a copy of this book I have three to give away. Just complete the widget below and good luck!

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
