Joey's Bedtime Stories
Books are company for children too
Publisher - Frances Lincoln
Thank you so much for letting Joey review The Magic Bojabi Tree
The BlurbPython has wrapped himself around the melon/mango/pomegranate tree with its delicious fruit, and he won't share the fruit unless the animals can tell him the correct name of the tree. Elephant, Monkey and Zebra each in turn visit Lion, who alone knows the name of the tree. But every time, the animals forget the name on the journey back to the tree. Then Tortoise, the slowest, smallest animal goes to Lion - and sings a special song to remind him of the name. It is the Bojabi Tree! Python unwraps himself from the trunk, and all the animals share a feast.
The Magic Bojabi Tree is a thin hardback book with 32 pages full of beautiful, colourful pictures which have been painted in watercolours.
There is a lot of writing in this book so is for older children, at least 4 years old (Joey's age). Joey kept his attention span for the whole story whereas his younger sister, Lacey didn't.
They both loved looking at the pictures and pointing out the different animals in the story such as a lion, birds, elephant etc. Lacey enjoyed making up her own little story from the different pictures.
Joey found it funny when the animals couldn't remember what the lion had told them that the tree's name was. The point of the story being that it's important to listen and then remember what you are told, which Joey was able to understand and get from the story.
The Magic Bojabi Tree is a lovely read with an important meaning behind the story about making sure to listen to what other's are telling you.
