Review: Babar by Jean de Brunhoff

Hi everyone!!! :)

I hope you're having a great weekend.

Today I want to share with you my thoughts of this book:



28258450 
this book contains the six books the author wrote:



35632183739342407502362817720502389


What is this book about? It's the story of Babar, an elephant, and his adventures. The books tells his story since he was born until he is an adult. You can see him grow and get married, have children and even meet Santa Claus. There is a book, Babar and Zephir, which is not about Babar, it's about Zephir the monkey.

My thoughts about this one:

I was really excited when I borrowed this book from the library. I had heard about Babar since I was little and I thought or I had read some of his stories or at least I had seen some cartoons about this character although I wasn't sure.

When I opened the book, I fell in love with the artwork. It's very unique and colorful. I liked the font, it was similar to handwriting and I know it's for children that they are starting reading can do it better, but I thought it was beautiful.

Now, about the first story, I think it was a bit rushed and made me feel uncomfortable. It jumped very quickly from one thing to another and also the things happened in this first book were a bit strange, such as Babar decides to buy a suit. I wasn't sure if I wanted to carry on reading the second story, but I decided to give it a go. 

The second story was better so I kept reading. The 3rd, 4th and 5th stories, I think they are the best. The 6th one,which is the one Babar is with Santa Claus,disappointed me. I expected more.

Overall I thought the books was entertaining and easy to read.

My Rating: 3 stars

Review: Mary Poppins comes back by P.L. Travers

Hi everyone!!! :)

I hope you're well.

Today I want to share with you my thoughts of this book:


673662 



What is this book about?: This book is about Mary Poppins, a special nanny who decides to take care of the children of an English family.


What I liked about this book: 

This one is the second book in the Mary Poppins series and I found it more engaging and entertaining than the first one. I liked the first one(I gave it 3 stars), but in this one the adventures are explained with more detail and they are more complete.
  

When I started reading this book, I was in the perfect mood for this book, but I put it aside to read other books and that was a mistake. I was loving, but when I picked it again I wasn't enjoying like before :(

Still I liked and I gave 3 starts in Goodreads. 

What I didn't like:

Some stories where similar to the first book, but with little differences.


My Rating:  3 starts
