Little One Books “The Wizard” Review & $15 G.C. Giveaway CLOSED

0 Shares

Little One Books is a company dedicated to providing only the best books, music, and videos for children.  Each item has been personally reviewed and selected by a team of professionals.  I was so surprised to learn this information.  They even provide an explanation of why that particular item was selected.  I had never heard of a company taking such time and care to select their products.    Little One Books does not rush your experience to simply make a quick dollar, but rather they excel at making the experience as personal as possible.  The music, books, and videos are divided by age making for easy searching.  This feature is an effective way for those who want to give a gift to a young one, but don’t know anything about current books, music, or videos.  You can be assured when you purchase an item from Little One Books it is only a quality selection.

I received “The Wizard” by Jack Prelutsky to review.  My two oldest boys loved this book.  The illustrations are amazing.  Rich colors and precise details make “The Wizard” a visually appealing book.  My other favorite part is that it is actually a poem.  It seems like it is getting somewhat rare to find a book that uses poetry.  In the poem the wizard wonders what magic he can create that day.  The wizard looks like a classic magician with a pointy hat and long white beard.  Throughout the story we see the wizards magic.  There is nothing frightening about the book.  Rather it is focused only on the magic and imagination of the wizard.  My boys and I love books like this, ones that inspire your thoughts.  It is easy to see why Little One Books selected this book.  Here is their review.

This book was written by The Poetry Foundation’s Children’s Poet Laureate, Jack Prelutsky. The poem is spooky and engaging, but the real star of the book is the artwork. The illustrations are beautifully done and are reminiscent of the computer generated animation that is so popular in children’s movies today.

Since the text of the book is a poem, your child will love the bouncy rhythm that keeps the story moving from page to page. There is not a lot of text on each page, which will allow your child to stay interested in the artwork. The book has a lot of eerie images that are exciting, but are not gory or scary. There are a lot of interesting details that are in the pictures, so your child will likely ask a lot of questions about what is going to happen next.

My nephew Michael gets a kick out of anything having to do with wizards or magic. We had a really fun day reading this together and talked about all of the gross rats and frogs that went into the wizard’s potions. He asked me if there were any wizards that lived in his neighborhood. We went outside and looked around for signs of wizards, and to his great relief, we didn’t find any.

–Eve

A rare moment with all 3 boys looking at the book!  It looks like my 3 year old is reading to his brothers:)

Here is my eldest intently looking at the pictures and semi-reading the story. (He is learning to read and I am super excited!)

    Oops, and I get onto hubby for not reading directions carefully enough. Lol. This is my second entry since the first two were supposed to be separate things. Sorry about that. That’s what I get for trying to watch the boob tube and work on the laptop at the same time. Kinda like walking and chewing bubble gum huh? Haha!
