A Great Big Cuddle

A great big cuddle is a wonderfully illustrated book full of witty poems that grasps the attention of young children with it's simplicity and helps them develop their vocabulary. The poems are usually humorous and provide the youngsters with a basic storylines that don't require a great deal of perception to appreciate and admire. The illustrations are eloquent and detailed, with an abundance of colour and emotive context. Every little child can easily engage with this book as it implies how imaginative and creative children are whilst playing with their toys; everything comes alive and whilst playing with their toys they step into an exciting world of adventure and make-believe. The layout of the typography and the illustrations is perfect for a child to admire the text as well as the big and bold pictures.
I would recommend this book to children aged 1-6 as I don't believe that children with a more advanced understanding of life would enjoy this book as much; they might be a trifle bored at how simple and plain the poems are by themselves.
I would rate this book a 8/10 as I loved the illustrations and how cleverly drawn they were. I also loved the overall innocent aspect of the book that should have been targeted at a younger audience.
