The Adventures of the Wishing Chair By Enid Blyton ~ Review

So the other day I wrote about introducing Little A to the world of poetry (a great success!) and now I want to share with you Midge's book from The Book People: The Adventures of the Wishing Chair written by Enid Blyton. I wanted to show Midge some of the books that I read when I was a little girl from famous authors. After just finishing Matilda by Roald Dahl and both enjoying it again very much, I chose this book by Enid Blyton for our bedtime reading.


Midge has been really trying with her reading lately and enjoying it so much. She's been reading her own books at home and gaining confidence. If you have a confident reader this book will be no problem with them, Midge read a few pages and was very surprised to learn she was actually able to read a 'big book.' Mostly though we shared the story together at bedtime with me reading to her. There are some larger words in this book that at 7 years old she hasn't come across yet in school, which is always good. 

What we love about this book as well is that although the front cover is a very modern illustration the inside is full of wonderful old style illustrations in every chapter.


Overall this book gets a 5 out of 5 from Midge!

  2. I do love reading with LP, it's great. LP loves reading too and he's got quite a collection of books. We've just started reading The BFG together and he's enjoying it. I think I'll have to try out this though, it sounds great. :)
