Book Review: That’s Mine!

That's Mine!

That’s Mine! by Michel van Zeveren is a lovely, cautionary tale, with bold illustrations that complement the language perfectly.

When the little frog finds an egg, he proclaims, “That’s mine!”, but the snake, the eagle and the lizard also want to lay claim to the egg…until it bounces up and hits the elephant on the head…

That's Mine!This is a delightful story, with a bit of a twist at the end which is sure to have your child giggling; Tiny loves it and always grins when we talk about what happens at the end of the story.

He enjoys the way the animals speak; lines such as “Hsss…hsss…hsss…ssssmine,” says the snake are appealing to read as well.

At three-and-a-half, he doesn’t quite understand the message behind the story, but a slightly older child would pick up on that, as well as the humour behind it. However, the language is such that Tiny “reads” this story to himself, and does a pretty good job of remembering all the lines.
That's Mine!This book was provided for review by Gecko Press, however all opinions expressed are my own.
