Bob makes it into Toppsta’s ‘100 Best Children’s Books of 2016’

December 20, 2016

Bob's journey keeps getting better and better!

James Garner‘s fully illustrated title Bob and the River of Time has been listed as one of 2016’s best children’s picture books in kids’ book review website Toppsta.

The books on the list have been read and recommended by children, parents, teachers, librarians, and grandparents, and those in the top 100 were noted as the ones that readers have enjoyed the most.

Bob and the River of Time introduces children to the beauty and wonder of wildlife and nature. Bob discovers the changing seasons, different types of weather and a huge variety of plant and animal life. On Bob’s journey, he sees a host of different animals, creepy crawlies, birds, flowers, vegetables and trees. The book is packed with interesting facts, meaning children can learn more as they discover the different critters. The beautiful illustrations and attention to detail ensure that each time you open the book you’ll discover something new. There is a key in the back of the book to show you where all the colourful characters are hiding, in case you’re really stuck!

Join Bob as he learns to be mindful and maintain a positive outlook, even when he isn’t sure where the river is taking him. The calming flow of the story will send children to a place of tranquil and inspired imagination. The story is ideal for relaxing bedtime reading, but hunting for and learning about all of the creatures will provide hours of additional fun. Searching for the many creatures and plants within the book is a great way to focus a child’s mind, especially if their mind has a tendency to wander.
