5* reviews for Den Building on Toppsta

January 10, 2017

"This book is fabulous for enabling kids’ (and adults’) imaginations to run wild, it is great for sparking creative thought and for inspiring you to get making fun dens."

As part of their latest giveaway competitions, Toppsta gave away twelve copies of Jane Hewitt and Cathy Cross‘s title Den Building to review (and to keep!) .

And we have since learnt that the book was a big hit with the lucky winners as eight readers rated it as 5* with flattering comments such as:

Some very cool, new, imaginative and creative ideas for building dens.

From the beginner to the most experienced of den builders there is something in this book for everyone.

This book was absolutely fantastic and led to hours of creative play and imaginative fun. The book is great because unlike a lot of other children’s books, it is designed in a much more unique and relatable way, using photographs rather than just illustrations or cartoon style drawings.

Den Building shows you how, with just a few household objects and these imaginative ideas, you can make hundreds of wonderful dens, with minimal mess and fuss. Using found items, creativity and imagination you can transform any space into a completely new environment. There are plenty of rainy-day activities and ideas for getting outside in the fresh air. Complete with hints and tips on finding materials, building and decorating dens, these brilliant ideas will keep children busy for hours – and adults are very welcome to join in the fun too. How many different things can you make with a cardboard box? How can a simple table be transformed into a spooky Halloween lair or a Viking ship? How much fun can you have with an old parachute? How do you make a miniature town from old packaging? Discover the magic in everyday objects and get den building!
