The Amazing Adventures of Thomas and Erin with Grandad: Market Day is a Children's Easy Reader.
Erin and Thomas are going to the market with their grandfather. They ride the bus, visit the bookstore, take a walk through the park, shop at the flower store and they stop for a cup of tea.
Along the way, Erin, two, and Thomas, three and a half, learn from their grandfather how to bond as a family. Grandad shares stories with his grandchildren before they head home from their days events.
I thought that the message of the story was an encouraging one. Spending a day with your grandfather is always a wonderful thing and it was enjoyable reading about their adventures.
I wasn't too fond of the graphics, the grandad was kind of creepy to me, maybe if he shaved or looked more like a grandfather I would have to change my opinion. While I felt that Erin looked two, Thomas, upon first seeing him, I thought he was around seven or eight and not the three and a half that is stated.
As well, this book is geared for children under five and I feel that maybe a slightly older group of children would like it better. I feel its a little dark for young minds and maybe adding some more colour to the pages would make it more appealing.
I would give The Amazing Adventures of Thomas and Erin with Grandad: Market Day a two and a half stars out of five. I thought the story was a good read but the graphics weren't very impressive.
Childrens book for children under five. It is a story about Grandad, his grandson Thomas, who is 3 1/2 and Erin his grandaughter who is 2 and their adventures.
