The King and the Cockerel by Sarah Morrell – Children’s Book Review

The King and the Cockerel by Sarah Morrell is a rhyming story accompanied by comical, colourful illustrations from Beata Mostowska. It is a nice big softback book with quality thick pages that are easy for little hands to turn.

As well as being fun, it is long enough to provide a decent length story time and has so many educational learning opportunities. From number ordering and counting, to learning about what other things animals provide us with, ie, wool coming from sheep, eggs from hens, and honey from bees. Children will not only see that it is wrong to take things that aren’t theirs, but also to admit when they are wrong and apologise and even do something to make amends. I loved the ethos of this book. Older children might find it fun to predict the rhyming words and will learn how punctuation and speech text is used in written form.

This story has so much to give.

I received this book from Blue Falcon Publishing for review consideration but rest assured, I only write about books that I really enjoy. I am more than happy to share this as part of my Recommended Reading.  Available to buy from Blue Falcon Publishing and Amazon.
