Changing the text to Americanize phrases has completely altered the rhyme and flow of the book and makes it lose it's charm Disappointed that site didn't say where the book was edited, or offer another version.

Before receiving, I had concerns about the length keeping the attention of my 2. We have fun reading it using a variety of voices to distinguish all of the characters.

Board book Verified download. I had already known I would love the story because we watched it on YouTube b4. However what made me love the book even more is that my daughter didn't like the scary looking graffalo on the TV screen. However she gets to touch it on the the book and see that its harmless.

The Gruffalo

I find myself thinking of the lines at work! I first saw the book, The Gruffalo, in Europe when I was on a trip, and bought it for my grands. It is as charming as the first! Slightly scary - just enough to keep young kids engrossed, but with a sweet end and story. I strongly recommend both! Review for Arabic version. I am not a native Arabic speaker, I am just reading for learning purposes.

I can't comment on the exact quality of translation, but it appears to be good. Most of my review is from the perspective of a person who is learning Arabic as a second language. The localization is pretty good, too. It's not a straight word-for-word translation -- it's more like the whole story was rewritten: The pages read right-to-left like they should and the images have been flipped to make it appear correct.

Great quality job over all. It sounds pretty cute when read aloud. From a reading level perspective, it is a bit harder than some children's books, but not overly difficult lines of poetry per page.

Although this book is suitable for children from 2 to 8, I think it would be particularly useful for children in Foundation stage or Year 1 introducing them to rhyming books and enabling them to relate to characters in stories providing many reading and writing opportunities. One of many fantastic books by Julia Donaldson! The wood is brought to life by a little mouse who takes a stroll through the deep dark woods; along the way he meets many dangerous creatures whom he scares off by the creation of an imaginary creature.

It is very colourful and the pages are brought to life by the fantastic illustrations of Axel Scheffler. There are lots of online resources available to support this book.

His illustrations are lively, colourful and help the subject of the story to not be intimidating to younger children in any way. During his journey he encounters many predators intent on eating him; however, the mouse uses cunning to scare them away.

The dominate theme in the book is the moral of the smallest using intelligence to overcome the brawny and intimidating; a lesson children of all ages can relate to. Rhyme is used consistently and repletion frequently by Donaldson. These features make the book wonderful to read with younger children as the rhyme and repetition make it very memorable. For older children, techniques such as alliteration and assonance are introduced.

The book could be highly beneficial as an educational tool, predominantly in the foundation stages and key stage one. The woodland setting of the book could encourage lessons on nature where children could even create their own Gruffalo forest in outside areas of a school. The pictures make the book accessible to children to read without being literate as the pictures follow the written parts of the story accurately.

The illustrations also allow young children to use their imagination, this could be developed into an art class, designing their own Gruffalo or simply painting him.
