Pretty please – leave some comments, regarding books and board games – so that I know whether you are finding these reviews useful or not and I can do some more “review planning” for you!!!
Book Review – Mr Smith Invents a Robot
I think this book is really smelly.. It is the coolest book I have ever smelt! I really enjoyed reading about Mr Smith and his cat Scratch and the mechanical dog Sniff. The best bits of the book were when you could scratch and sniff Mr Smith;s T-shirt which smelled of bananas, and Scratch the cat who smelled of Lavender.. The worst bit of the book was smelling the old smelly shoe.. I made my dad smell the smelly shoe… it was very funny but he did not like it.
I love the smelly stickers in the middle of the book, I am going to share them with my friends at school. . I like the story and am looking forward to finding out what Mr Smith does next in The Search for the Stinky Pond!
I think this book is great for kids aged 4 and 0ver – even my big sister who is 12 thinks it is fun.

Board Game – Opposites Puzzles
This is a fun little game for 3-6years. The aim of the game is to “puzzle” together opposite words, such as “in” and “out” (of the car) or “up” and “down” (from the tree). It is a great little game to learn new verbs and of course “opposites”. Red Ted is not quite 3, but already likes the puzzle elements and the fact that you can discuss the “mini puzzles”. Each puzzle is made up of two pieces, that are colour co-ordinated, which helps the younger players. The pictures show the words and are cute little drawings with huge toddler appeal. So this can be used on two levels – visual assembly or by learning to read simple words. Some of the opposites are a little harder, as the pictures are not always “perfect”, but we still think that this is a lovely little game, which Red Ted enjoys!!
