Review | This Old Van by Kim Norman

1st October 2015

I recently won a competition run on Your Baby Club Uk‘s Facebook page, and our prize was This Old Van by Kim Norman, illustrated by Carolyn Conahan!

This Old Van

This copy is a Hardback with a sleeve (which with a toddler has a very good chance of being trashed, but as a bibliophile I will desperately try to keep it in decent condition!) and is filled with beautiful illustrations – there’s so much going on on each page, I’m sure it will definitely keep my little one occupied.

The words fit perfectly to the song This Old Man, making it easy to sing along to, and educational as a counting song – X is getting into his numbers now, so this will be great for him!

As a rule, I wouldn’t normally buy hardback children’s books, but hopefully it will help to keep the pages in good nick, and I generally don’t buy “expensive” children’s books for the same reason – this one has a RRP of £11.99 but has the quality to make it worth it.

I can’t wait to sit down with little man towards Christmas and read this together – I’m certain it will become a firm favourite!

Disclaimer: We received this book as a prize on a randomly drawn competition on Facebook, as run by Your Baby Club UK. I did not receive the book on the understanding that I would review it, nor was it part of the terms of the competition, however they did ask if I could share my thoughts – which I am happy to do.
