Book Review: If I Was a Banana by Alexandra Tylee illustrated by Kieran Rynhart

bananaGecko Press produce some lovely and unique children’s books. They are always well made and feel like miniature pieces of art in themselves. If I Was a Banana is no exception, its beautifully illustrated and is quite a thoughtful read for children.

The book basically follows a boy view of everyday things. Its about the magic and wonder that can be found in everyday things and encounters. I thought it was a useful read with my 4 and 7 year old as it enabled us to talk about their lives and their experiences of their own everyday adventures. It came  at a brilliant time for us when I was trying to get my 4 year old to open up a little bit more about his experiences in Reception.

I should say that this is quite a quirky book, it suits my children’s world view perfectly as they are all quite creative quirky little characters, but some kids might not ‘get it’ and just be a bit confused!
