Who hides here? Footprints in the garden review

James has just turned five and all through reception year he was a very reluctant reader. He does however love having a story read to him. So you can imagine his joy when we got sent a copy of Who Hides Here Footprints in the garden by Rachel Coverdale to review. 

As he has just started Year One we are making a bigger effort to help James with his reading and this book has helped him along side the books he brings home daily from school.

James absolutely loves being outside, I think this is partly to do with him doing forest school at nursery and then again in reception! 

James loved mummy reading the book to him and seeing the different footprints that the animals make. He was really good at guessing which animal made which prints. 

He is very excited as Year One are about to start doing their Autumn Term of forest school in the secret garden and he is wanting to take the book in to school to show Sophie from Stomping Grounds as he is hoping he will be able to spot some of the footprints in the school garden!

Overall this is a brilliant book for reluctant readers like James! His reading has really come on in leaps and bounds in the last two months!
