Look Mummy! Twirlywoos!!!! Can we read the books NOW (please)!?
Twirlywoos are quite new to us but they have an influential presence here and there is hardly any days without watching them on the TV. Infact, I was introduced to Twirlywoos by the little one!!!!
If you haven’t heard of Twirlywoos before, they are 4 bird-like creatures who seek on adventures and fun. We have watched and still watching a number of episodes from Twirlywoos but never had the books featuring them (may be because they were new, I didn’t think about it).
So, receiving two new Twirlywoo books (from Harper Collins through mumsnet) was quite exciting for the little one and yes, for me too.
These are hard back books, just perfect for the little hands and aims at interactive reading involving some fun physical activities.
Meet the Twirlywoos – As the name says, it introduces Twirlywoos to the child and starts with an excitement that “What they are going to do today!?”, So, you can ask questions to the child, let their imagination flow and get them talking. This books talks about different things a child can do with a ball and encourages them to repeat it.
Hello, Chickedy! Hello, Chick! – is all about playing a hide and seek game with the two characters and encourage the child to spot them as they hide underneath a hat, behind the flowers, on the Pussy cat and so on. So, it teaches the children about the Position words.
Though they are just described as birdy like creatures, we call them duckies and see them as a family of four ! I am still not sure if Chickedy and Chick are boys or girls but we randomly call them he and she! 🙂
Each page has different colour and is a treat to the little eyes. Priced at around £5.99, they are perfect for children in pre-school and early years to help enjoying the reading time.
Here is a video about how we get on with the books. Though we usually read before bed time either on the Sofa or the bed, sometimes using the dining table for reading and writing makes it easier! 🙂
