Smashwords book reviews by Chris James

  • Mr. Pish Goes to the Farm on June 26, 2013
    star star star star star
    Mr Pish Goes to the Farm is an ideal picture book for children, and cleverly educational. The pictures are top quality and evocative of farm life, and Mr Pish encourages youngsters to think by asking them questions in the text. This impressed me because it’s a great example of how to get children to think about important things, like where food comes from, without them realising it. As a parent of three, I’d thoroughly recommended this book for pre-school and other young children.
