School is back in session and we have got our hands on some great new books! We just love reading the latest and greatest books. This new children’s book is no exception and it is perfect for the school year.
The Day That A Ran Away, written by B.C.R. Fegan and illustrated by Lenny Wen has made its way onto the #MelAndNikkiReview!
Now you may find the duo of B.C.R. Fegan and Lenny Wen familiar and you should as they have been featured on our blog before. This dynamic duo brought us, Don’t Ever Look Behind Door 32 that we featured earlier this year. They have become one of our favorite writing duos!
When Jet’s teacher questions why he has completed his work by writing out the alphabet. Jet takes us on a wild adventure on why each letter left his page. Jet tries to explain that it really isn’t his fault. After all, how can he help it, if none of his letters want to stay on the page!
The Day That A Ran Away clearly and cleverly moves through the alphabet from A to Z. Each page has a number of items to find and the simple rhyme on each page will help readers remember the letter sequence. The story also touches gently on the concept of homework and the importance of making an effort.
We just loved the book with each page turn. I am a big fan of rhyming books as it makes reading so much more fun for me as a parent and the illustrations are very captivating throughout. With each letter we are able to point out things on the page that begin with that letter of the alphabet. As a parent it helped me teach my daughter the alphabet in more depth by attaching it with recognizable words for her. For example D is for Dog. This book is recommended for children ages three to eight and it will be one of our favorites for story time.
For this #MelandNikkiReview we give it 5 A’s out of 5 as we love the rhyming, story, characters and the fun learning incorporated in the book. The book was so much fun to read and I know you will enjoy it too!

Until next time…Happy Parenting!
