Follow Me Around the House | Children’s Book Review

Follow Me Around the House | Children’s Book Review
This week the children have been reading Follow Me Around the House. This book has gorgeous illustrations and was written by Camille Garoche

This week the boys have been going crazy for a new book that we received,  Follow Me Around the House!  They have been so lucky to be sent this for review and we have spent hours looking at it.  That is no exaggeration by the way!!!

Premise – Follow Me Around The House

follow me around the house book cover

The book sees Siamese cat Luna, show three curious puppies around their new home.

Luna has a wild imagination as she warns the puppies what to expect!  She want to make sure they know about crocodile in the bathtub and horrible beasts in the attic.  But what will the puppies really find?

Follow Me Around the House has an incredible 50 lift the flaps to open and explore.

“Follow me, Follow me. This is the living room.  

Be careful near that old cabinet.

Trust me, trust me… I think it’s full of ferocious spiders.”

Twin Thoughts

D: “First, we have the page with all the doggies, that is so cool.  Then, they have found a spiderweb in a cupboard with is funny.  They find lots and lots and LOTS of stuff. My favourite bit is the attic, because that is when they are having fun.”

L:”I like it!  I like the bathroom page, because I love the ducks that I found.  I like ducks.  ducks are my favourite. The cat is silly!”

My Thoughts

The thing that stands out for me is the illustrations in this book.  They look incredible and have so much detail in them.  Every time you look at this book you see something different!  I love Luna’s incredible imagination, it is just like the boys and I am sure that is why this book captured their imagination.

The flaps encourages children to be fully engaged with the book.  The kids loved exploring and finding out what was really behind the doors and curtains.

It is such a lovely book and probably one of the loveliest books we have read this year.

    As you said illustrations are always good. It seems this is an interesting book. My elder grand son who is 10 years old enjoy reading books a lot, This can be a great gift for him.

    I don’t care how old I am, I will always love lift the flap books. So many things to discover and it boggles my mind how they get it right. And then there’s a purr baby too, what’s not to love about this book.

    We’ve reviewed this one too. I love it. There’s another one in the series Follow Me Around The Garden which we’re reading at the moment, it’s just as lovely! #marvmondays

    Wow! Love the illustrations! Looks like a really good, interactive book for kids. My kids love books and I’ve noticed that reading books from a young age on really helps them with imagination, vocabulary and communication. #anythinggoes
