Recently, I had the pleasure of receiving the first two books in the new Quack and Field series.
The Quack and Field series is suitable for children aged 3-7 and the aim is to provide a child-friendly guide to the various events in the Olympic and Paralympic games. I think this is a fab idea! My children were fascinated by the Olympics and I think they would have benefited enormously from reading these books before watching the events.
The competitors in the events are actually rather adorable little animals, they’re cute and cuddly and my 7 year old daughter really liked them, she particularly like Lucy the Lamb and Rochelle the Rabbit!
The stories start off with a little information about the events and what the competitors have to do.
The first book, “Swimming”, features Harriett the Hippo, Lucy the Lamb, Duke the Dog and Trey the Turtle. The commentator, Quack (I’ll let you guess what animal he is!), introduces the event and the characters and we get a few interesting facts about them before they step out poolside. They all have different strengths and it’s great to see how they use them during the race! You’ll have to read the book to find out who wins!
The second book, “Trampolining”, introduces us to new characters. My personal favourite is Pixie the Penguin. Quack commentates again as we follow them through the competition.
I think this series is a really fun way of explaining to young children how the Olympics and Paralympics works. It’ll be wonderful to see which other events will be covered throughout the rest of the series.
These are wonderful books, perfect for inquisitive children, I’d highly recommend them to anyone with children aged 3-7!
