I received a sample of Peppa Pig products for review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Story time can be a pretty big deal in my house. My boys want me to read to them throughout the whole day. I can’t complain about it. I just need to make sure we frequently add new books to our collection. The most recent book addition is a family favorite: Peppa Pig and the Muddy Puddles.
My kids love to watch the animated Peppa Pig shows on Nick Jr. The stories are typically around five minutes long, which is short enough to hold their attention. When the new Peppa Pig book was delivered to our house, they were so enthusiastic that I had to read it to them immediately. The packages also contained the cute Hug ‘n Oink Peppa toy that is sold separately.
The story is extremely fun. Peppa and George go to bed one night while it’s raining. All they can think about is the muddy puddles that will be waiting for them when they wake up.
When they wake up the next morning, they are surprised to see so much water that it flooded and no muddy puddles to play in. It makes for fun adventures as the story goes on highlighting generosity, family fun, laughter, and of course a happy-ending with muddy puddles. One of their favorite characters, Polly Parrot, makes an appearance in the book. This caused them to repeat a lot of the story-lines as I was reading, but it also created lots of cute giggles.
The animated shows are narrated like a storybook, so as I read each page, it flowed extremely well just like the series. It definitely made it more enjoyable for the kids and myself. The 32 heavy-duty, glossy pages are filled of bring colors and large text. It’s not too long and had the kids asking for more when we reached the end.
Peppa Pig and the Muddy Puddles is a hardback book that comes with a cover jacket. It was a nice surprise when I saw the inside of the jacket was a color poster. The boys haven’t got their hands on it yet, as you can see.
Every time I read a book to my (almost) 4 year old, he likes to take it and ‘read’ it afterwards. He goes on explaining the pictures and what he remembers from the story. The brilliant illustrations in this book were so spot on, that he basically read the whole book back to me.
We read it frequently and now he is asking for more Peppa Pig books.
Peppa Pig and the Muddy Puddles retails for just $12.99, which I think is an amazing price for this high quality hardback book. Right now, it is on sale on Amazon.com for just $9.74 (Amazon prices can change at anytime, so depending on when you are reading this, the price may vary).
Any other Peppa Pig fans around?
