{ 3rd Party Review + Giveaway} Emily Lim's Toy Tales Award Winning Series !

I guess I'm one of the very last to review this set of award-winning series picture books by our local author, Emily Lim  !

My little bookworm was elated when he received this set of books to add on to his library collection. If you are looking for books to relate what friendship and love is all about to your little buddies, this series is strongly recommended.

We fell in love with the beautiful illustration and love it when the characters come alive with their narrations. Simply because the new edition is made compatible with Pen Pal Whizz. Click here for my review.

On the bottom right of the book, as you read and flip, you will see two logos. The one with the game controller icon is actually a simple quiz which can be played with Pen Pal Whizz to see if the child comprehend the contents.

Let me bring you through a brief summary of the four picture books.

Prince Bear & Pauper Bear :

A story about love, friendship and a kind hearted boy with a generous heart ! A few days before Christmas, Prince Bear who was well stitched, wore a cloak and a crown and had thought highly of himself, was picked and brought back to her big house by a little girl.

On the other hand, the poorly stitched Pauper Bear was forgotten and unloved, longing to be picked by a child who would love and play with him, was given free to a little boy who came into the toyshop, wanting to buy a teddy bear but have not much money on him.

Read on how the lives of these two bear changed as they followed their new owner back home !

Prince Bear & Pauper Bear

Bunny Finds The Right Stuff :

A heart warming story about Friendship which we can easily relate to the little ones. It is a story about an unhappy bunny who was flat footed  and floppy due to the insufficient stuffing in him and did not like the way he looked. He searched for ways and means to fill himself up but ended up  in a big mess each time. His friends learnt about it and went about helping by giving a little bit of themselves to lift up his mood.

The Tale of Rusty Horse :

Rusty horse used to be a favourite of the children, is now saddened, for he was being forgotten by everyone as he is now old and rusty.  How he longed to be a real horse, taking children for rides and one day, his wish came true when he met a fairy who granted his wish. Read on for Rusty's adventure when he became a real horse ! 

The Tale of Rusty Horse

Just Teddy :

I love the way how this story relates to children that each individual person is special in their own way. We do not need to change the way we look just to get accepted into a group.
Just Teddy

This story tells us about Teddy who eventually lost his own sense of identity after trying hard to get himself blend in into different groups until he met a little girl who loved him just the way he was.

Hi, I just got a pen pal whizz for my son recently and it was a big hit. He enjoy it very much and love to hear the picture talking. These lovely books would be a perfect addition to his collection and I'm sure he would love to read these books over and over again.
