"Mine!" by Sarah Hammond, Illustrated by Laura Hughes #Review

Our latest review as a Parragon Book Buddy was perfect for Squeaks.
"Mine!" is the story of a little girl running a coffee shop, trying to figure out whether it is best to run it 'just so' or 'with a little help from her friends'.
Not only does the book have lots of letters which Squeaks is learning and we can word build, but it is also so beautifully illustrated. It is so beneficial to have a book where the font supports learning, and the colours and images draw children in.
We have had so much fun not only reading the words but also spending time on each page admiring the detail.
Having fun making our own stories without reading the words.

For us, loving coffee shops and baking cakes, this is a perfect book for today's child. The illustrations reminding me of my childhood of ragdolls and china tea sets, well this makes it a book as appropriate for my childhood as Squeaks.
And for a mum trying to show to her daughter that the boys may not do things Squeaks' way, but life can be more enjoyable if sometimes there is compromise- well, of course this book says it so much better!

This book is a great addition to any bookcase, and especially for parents trying to demonstrate the benefits of sharing!

Disclosure: We recieved this book in our role as Parragon Book Buddies. All views and opinions contained are our own.
