Book Review: Kiki and Bobo’s Sunny Day by Yasmeen Ismail

Kiki and Bobo are having a day at the seaside, its all very exciting but they have very different personalities which reminded me of my own children. This is a lovely picture book from one of the UK’s best children’s book illustrators. Aimed at very little children this has lots of flaps to keep their interest and a very simple charming dialogue between the characters.

I like books which have slightly eccentric characters and in Bobo there is a picture book version of one of my own highly eccentric children. Suffice to say we all found this charming, its a really endearing book.

Being set a the seaside makes it the perfect book to gift any little pre-schoolers who are about to go off on summertime seaside holidays. There are plenty of opportunities in the book to allow you to discuss any anxieties that they might have which makes it a useful addition to the bookshelf this time of year.

As ever with Walker Books Kiki and Boko’s Sunny Day is beautifully presented and feels like a quality book. If you’d like to find out more have a look here.
