Book Review: Where’s Kiwi? Around the World, illustrated and written by Myles Lawford

Available in bookshops nationwide.cv_wheres_kiwi_around_the_world

There are more than 800 things to spot in this “story”. Kiwi has itchy feet wanting adventure and places to see. This is the second book that I have had the pleasure of reviewing by Myles Lawford.

Kiwi in this story is taking off in a worldwide adventure, starting in Australia and ending in a Pacific Island. This is an interactive story with the reader being asked to find Kiwi and his mates in each illustration; Sporty Sheep, Gumboot Guy, Wacky Wizard and Tricky Tuatara.

Each double page covering each country visited is full of surprises with the 4 ½ year old in our family finding each character in record time.

I love books like this as it is an opportunity for me as a Grandma to work with a grandchild finding the characters. This is a lovely book and would make a wonderful addition to the Christmas wish list of any child.
