Who knew learning could be this fun? I must say that my slugs and I were rather perplexed by the title but inside, it's an overload of cuteness, novelty and learning - I didn't know my brain could take it! I liked the way it was presented as if the paper's from a notebook and the characters are illustrated in a very unusual way - reminds me of those Russian dolls. The diversity aspect is wonderful so that your little slugs will see that we're all the same, we're all slugs underneath. Combined with the mathematics, it's two in one! Wonderful!
Elsa Takaoka has written a quite splendid book that teaches your slugs to sit still and become attentive listeners. Ah, attentive listeners, how I miss Steve the Slug. Quite often my slugs wiggle a bit too often so this book worked a treat and got them to pay attention at long last. There are splendid rhymes and really colourful, manga-esque illustrations by Catherine Toennisson. And with surnames like theirs, how can you resist getting this book?
