Review for Big Words Small Stories: The Missing Donut

Review for Big Words Small Stories: The Missing Donut

I received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

So I have to say I thought this one would be a picture book. The cover, the title, it sounded to me like this would be a hilarious picture book about a boy and his missing donut. But instead it is much more!

Actually this book contains several short stories, 5 to be exact, and then a 6th one that combines all the words that we learned in this book. Yep, that is right, this book has fun stories, but also a word. And not just a word, but big words. Like purloined or bamboozled. These words are woven in the story (though we do get a warning that a BIG WORD is coming up), we get an explanation on how to pronounce them, and then at the end of the story we see the meaning of said word (though kids can also just gander the meaning from reading the story). I really loved that the author went for such big words and then to learn them to kids in such a fun way.

The stories always include someone doing something wrong, like the cat flying through the sky when he wants to impress people on his bike, or the cat breaking something. What happens to those who done wrong? Well, that is why we have a sprinkle fairy for. And it is a sprinkle fairy with a love for hotdogs it seems. 😛

The stories are short, and are also told through the illustrations. The illustrations are a bit simple, but I did like the style.

All in all, I had tons of fun reading this, and I am sure kids will love it. They get fun, hilarious stories, and they also learn something.
