That was my main reason on picking this particular Tovi book to read. It’s geared more towards the ages of 2-6. It’s a simple picture book that follows the adventure of Tovi and friends through several books. I loved that it was not a one shot idea for a book, and it continues. As any child grows, repetition is key in learning. It also helps if you introduce a particular character they grow to love.
I loved that Tovi and friends were all penguins, going to the beach. I think it goes to show that it doesn’t matter who you are, life is pretty enjoyable! A good lesson as well is being aware of your surroundings. They were so excited to play and enjoy themselves, they missed out on a clue or two that might hinder their day of fun in the sun.
The pictures were all nicely done and weren’t really “flat” so to speak. There is a bit of texture and the bold colors are both great sensory simulators. The book also reads in a landscape view on your eReader.
Even though some of my musings about the book may allude to a broader lesson than what the author intended, they are ones you can take and run with. Janina follows up the book at the end with some cute personal photos a great choice of other books and the very last page that every kid loves to end with. But of course “The End!”!
I give this one 5 out of 5 stars!
