If I remember back to my school days I remember some of my favourite books were the Topsy & Tim books.
I even had twin dolls.
So when I was blessed with my very own Topsy & Tim I started them watching the series on TV and bought any books I could find!
A few weeks ago I was contacted to ask if I would like to review a copy of the Topsy and Tim learning books from Ladybird. I jumped at the chance.
My twins started full time school in September and they are currently starting work on a phonics program called read write inc.
When I picked up these books to go through them with my two I was pleased to see they actually work hand in hand with their school work.
The first spellings book is great for handwriting as well as learning sounds.
J is not normally interested in writing but even he found this book fun. He even sounded out some of the words I thought he may struggle with.
It’s a great little book and it’s wipe clean so both children could have a go and they can do it over and over again!
The Topsy & Tim first words book has a little more advanced words in than we can recognize at the moment but we still had fun sticking in the stickers.
M enjoys learning and loved guessing words by the first couple of letters.
The books are designed in a way that school children can relate to when first starting school. Within them are activities revolving around getting dressed, starting school and making friends. Daily school routines like lunch & lining up!
In the package we also received a Peppa Pig book – Peppa Pig – Going Swimming.
The book is designed for children just starting to read. There are a few words that the children can sound out and a few words mine knew anyway like mummy & daddy.
All the Topsy and Tim books can be found online at https://www.penguin.co.uk
There is also a Topsy and Tim start school app that can be found in the App Store.
If your little ones are starting school soon or have just started I would recommend these books.
I was sent the books in exchange for a review. All the opinions however are my own.
