M writes a book review

Recently I entered M in a competition with the family times magazine. The winners receive a book to review and keep. We won a copy of the very gorgeous, Henry's map. Here's the review M came up with (and I typed). It's published on the Family Times webpage here, an all round fun learning experience for her : )

I was very excited when Henry's Map by David Elliot came in the post for me.

"A place for everything and everything in its place"  is what the pig in this story says.

The story is about a pig called Henry who makes a map of the farm he lives on. It was so he could see where the buildings and animals on the farm should be. It's a funny book that will make you smile.

I liked the book because I also like drawing maps. I think the pictures of the farm animals are cute too.

This book would be a really good present for a girl or boy aged 5-8.

The only thing I would change is that I think it would've been good to have a rooster in the story. I think farms need a rooster to wake all of the animals up in the morning.

My Name is Mae. I am 6 years old and I live in St Albans in Christchurch. I like to do crafts, play outside with my brother and listen to music. I have just started reading Billie B Brown books and I think they're awesome. I also like Mum and Dad reading chapter books to us. Right now we're reading a book I borrowed off my teacher called The Giants and The Joneses by Julia Donaldson.
