I was given the wonderful opportunity to do a book review of Mr. Biggs In The City written and illustrated by Kevin Bloomfield.
The book follows Mr. Biggs as he heads to the big city to seek adventure and fun. See, Mr. Biggs is kind of lonely in the forest and one day he climbs this big old tree and he is able to see the city. To Mr. Biggs, the city looks fun and he really wants to visit there so off he goes on his adventure.
You get to follow along as Mr. Biggs tries his hand at skateboarding, ballet, being a musician and so much more.
Will Mr. Biggs find friends and fun in the big city?
Well, you will just have to read this book to find out.
My opinion on this book is: I loved it. The illustrations and the story are wonderful. I have had the book for a couple of days now and we have read it 5 times. My little girl loves this book, and it is now her favorite one to read before bed, and she is even willing to go and get comfortable on the bed and take a nap if I read to her first. She giggled at the illustrations and followed along wonderfully with the story.
Per the summary the audience of this book is Pre-K to 3rd grade and my little one who is Pre-K age was easily able to follow along and not get bored. The pictures jumped right off the page at her and kept her interested throughout the whole book.
I know that this is a book that she is going to treasure for a long time to come.
Right now you can purchase the book on Amazon for about $12.71.
