Review: Parragon Books 'Slide & See: Jack and the Beanstalk'

Monday, July 20, 2015

Back in May we reviewed 'Slide & See: Princess & the Pea' from the slide and see fairy tales range. It was a huge hit with Gracie and Zach so they were very pleased to receive the 'Slide & See: Jack and the Beanstalk' book from the same range.

Jack can't believe his eyes when an enormous beanstalk grows in his garden. Discover what happens when Jack climbs to the top! When you see the matching picture, slide and see!

Another great classic story retold in a simple yet fun way! The story has been shortened slightly and it works really well for smaller children. I remember finding the giant quite scary as a child but this version definitely makes him seem less frightening to the kids. Gracie and Zach both loved this book and they really enjoy the slide and see tabs. They also really want a hen that lays golden eggs for the garden!

We love the slide and see range and would definitely recommend it for toddlers and preschoolers! 

'Slide & See: Jack and the Beanstalk' is available to buy at The Works bookstore.
