My Guest Reviewer’s Thoughts

Today I would like to introduce to everyone to my very special guest reviewer today, my daughter Amelia, who is perfect for reviewing these books as we reads them before bed.

Let’s start with Sarah’s Shadow as we read this book first.

The story follows a young girl called Sarah who gets picked on at school one day about her shadow so makes a wish on a shooting star that the shadow should go away.

The story then follows her as she goes on a school trip but tries to hide the fact she doesn’t have a shadow from everyone.

Amelia’s thoughts – I thought the book was very good and really enjoyed the pictures.  The story was good and I liked how it ended.

My thoughts – I thought the book was very well written and illustrated.  The way the story was written made it an enjoyable read the numerous times we have read it since it arrived.

Now onto Go To Sleep review

This story follows a sheep called Tansy who can’t go to sleep one night so goes around waking everyone up so they can suggest ideas to help her fall asleep but after speaking with the Barn Owl things go wrong.  She ends up waking the Sheep dog who in turn wakes up all the other sheep to solve the issue.

Amelia’s thoughts – I liked this book as well and really enjoyed counting the sheep when one was lost. The pictures were really nice as well.

My thoughts – This book is a really good book, which Amelia really enjoyed counting along with when Tansy thought one of the sheep was missing.  Before we got to the end of the book I asked Amelia lots of questions and it helped her to think about what was happening and what might have caused the issue, which she seemed to enjoy doing.

Overall we both liked each of these books and would read them both again as part of our night routine.

Marion Adams has been writing for as long as she can remember, usually for fun and sometimes for money as well. She started her career as an in-house copywriter with a publisher and now works as a freelance proofreader and editor. It’s her dream job because she’s paid to read all day (and eat dark chocolate). Over the years, she’s written all kinds of things for both adults and children, some serious and some less so, with published work including magazine stories, articles, poems, plays and non-fiction books.

Marion lives in Devon, UK, and when she’s not reading or writing (or eating dark chocolate), she loves going for walks on the wild moors where her picture book Go To Sleep! is set.
