Product reviews for Bob and the River of Time

Neil Henty, Early Years Educator, November 2016 issue
This is a really interesting book. It is a book of two halves really. The first half tells the story of Bob, travelling by boat along the River Mumbles, observing the changing seasons and the different weather systems they bring, and the wide variety of animal and plant life.

Each double page is crammed full of interesting information and can be used to spark discussions about the natural world and transitions between the seasons. This is a lovely gentle tale; idyllic even.

The second half of the book is the information half. If you wanted to use the story to promote discussions about wildlife then this half not only contains a 'cast of characters' complete with information about each one, but also a visual guide to where they are all hiding in the story. This adds longevity to the story and makes it an interesting reference book for inquisitive young minds.
