"The Carrot Cake Catrastrophe!" A #review with Parragon Book Buddies



With Seren becoming an independent reader, our book collection inadvertently separate into "Books which Seren reads" and "Books which mummy reads".
Mummy's books are usually distinguished by font or duration.
As I love books which are a journey for both of us, I love the books which we can cwtch up and read together.
Those books are ones which Seren realises she can't read alone, but wants to enough to accept support, and avoid the 'laziness' of letting mummy reading them.

"The Carrot Cake Catastrophe", by Elizabeth Dale & Gemma Raynor, is one which naturally falls in the 'inbetween'. Seren understands that it is a story, but also sees it as her receipe book. 
Associating with the Grampy reliant on spectacles, loving the baking which she enjoys so much.

Seren loved the illustrations by Gemma Raynor, identifying out the ingredients and humour.
We have yet to make the cake (Secret: Mummy hates carrots, loves carrot cake, but can't bear acknowledging the contradiction by baking it).
The good news is Seren is going from strength to strength reading the book, and seeking support when the words are unknown.
And we have giggles every time- which can only be a good thing!

Disclosure: We recieved a copy of this book for the purposes of this review. All opinions and views expressed are our own.
