Review

The second 'Would you Rather' book that I've encountered, I enjoyed this one so much more! This fantastic book is full of marvellous mini-beast facts all presented to young readers through thought provoking questions such as 'Would you rather have a queen bee for a mum, a water bug for a dad, a stick insect for a brother or a millipede for a sister?' Great for starting a discussion, this book is amusing, revolting but mostly captivating - the illustrations are entertaining. Cartoon bugs living different scenarios with a little boy - I've learnt facts from this book, as well as seriously considered the pro's of being a dung beetle.... Fantastic for Key Stage One children looking at 'Mini-beasts', this book could also provide a good discussing point for older children developing their verbal reasoning skills. Picture book / Ages 5+ / Reviewed by Lizi Coombs, teacher
