Review: My Marvellous Mum

We've always loved Susannah McFarlane's gorgeous aliterated alphabet series - Little Mates - featuring a slew of adorable animal characters.

This series is small format (think Mr Men) and is designed for younger kids who are ready for a little more text. The aliteration is also perfect for vocab and speech extension.

In My Marvellous Mum, we meet two fuzzballs - Matilda and Max - who simply adore their marvellous mums. Kids can take a cue on how to throw the perfect mother's day with this charming little book. It would also make a gorgeous addition to Mum's breakfast tray.

If you'd like to see more in this series, KBR has reviewed the first six books right here.
