What happens when you cross Campbell Books with a London theme? Genius, that’s what! We spend quite a lot of time going backwards and forwards to London with the children and the older they get, the more familiar they are becoming with some of the major sights of our gorgeous City. When we had our girly day in London a couple of weeks ago, Little Bean loved being in Trafalgar Square, she was amazed by the size of some of the statues there and of Nelson’s Column, she even asked how they managed to get his statue stood on the top of such a tall “tower”.
We were recently sent a set of the beautiful Hello London series of books from Campbell to review and they have been an instant hit with all the children. All three of them like the Hello London ‘Push, Pull and Slide’ book because they love to get involved and make the book ‘do things’. I particularly love how it’s even raining on the front of the bus, they have captured London perfectly!! Little Bean will be 6 in June and her memory is getting better and better, looking through the book she recognised Tower Bridge and the London Eye but without doubt our favourite page has to be the underground.
Beanie Boy likes ‘My First London Bus and London Taxi’ books because he can pretend to drive them around on the floor. It has little observational questions to get the children involved in really looking at the pictures which are brightly coloured and engaging.
For Jelly Bean we have the Buggy Books which are perfect for taking out and about with you. When we visited London at the weekend to see the view from The Shard I may have ‘borrowed’ his buggy buddies to engage Little Bean and Beanie Boy in a spot of eye-spy whilst we were up there.
I think these will be on our favourites list for a long while to come, definitely a must-have before a visit to London with the little people.
Hello London RRP £9.99
