Hello Kitty; I love my Daddy and Happy birthday - Reviews
Hello Kitty thinks her daddy is very special. He's funny, clever, brave and kind, like every good daddy is! Read this wonderful book to find out all the things Hello Kitty loves about her daddy.
Celebrate all that's great about birthdays with Hello Kitty! Hello Kitty loves birthdays and today is her very own birthday. Celebrate with her as she has a party, opens presents, plays games, blows out the candles on her cake and more. Everyone loves birthdays and they're even more special with Hello Kitty.
Both of these books are beautifully illustrated with simple, yet colourful pictures. They both have short stories, perfect for reading to little sleepy heads at bedtime or for first time readers looking to try and read to themselves. In I love my daddy Hello Kitty is talking about all the things she loves about her dad, the things he does for her and how he makes her feel like a princess, it really captures the bond between a father and his little girl in such a simple way that I think any daddy's girl will relate, whatever the age. I also liked that she mentions things he loves that she doesn't quite enjoy, like his bad singing and a favourite part of mine was that he can always help solve her problems unless its maths because even though her daddy is her hero, she knows he isn't perfect, but that's okay. It's a lovely message for a kids book.
In Happy birthday it is of course Hello Kitty's birthday, she's having a party that all her friends are coming to. What I liked about this book is that it often asks the reader questions, like what should Hello Kitty wear or who is wearing the silliest hat, it encourages young readers to get involved with the story and to really look at the illustrations.
Both books are wonderful for little princesses and little readers all around, I'd highly recommend them.
