The Day That A Ran Away by B C R Fegan @bcrfegan #PublicationDay @TaleBlade #Review

ARC copy received from TaleBlade Press.
While Mrs May is checking her students’ homework, she notices that Jet hasn’t managed to write down the letters of the alphabet. Instead of providing a familiar excuse, Jet offers Mrs May an elaborate story about how every letter happened to leave his page while he was walking to school that morning.
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.

  • As a book blogger it’s always amazing when I receive any book post and my children love it even more when it happens to be a book for them to enjoy. After much excitement we all got settled down to read The Day That A Ran Away. So what did we think…

    I have to talk about the illustrations first of all as they are bold, bright and easily catch the eye. This story follows a little boy called Jet who has forgotten to do his homework or has something else happened to all the letters in his work? It really is a wonderful way of introducing the alphabet to children but using a fun and imaginative story to achieve it. With Jet explaining how the letters of the alphabet got caught up in the different and very creative situations. Each letter is drawn differently and I loved the little details on each one. Then of course the story also helps to reinforce the idea of completing your homework!
    The book is an ideal length to keep your little ones entertained without their attention wandering and both my three and five year old enjoyed listening to the story. The words used within the story are easy to understand and my little boy could attempt to read some of the story for himself.
    A fun and imaginative story!

    With thanks to Ariella at TaleBlade Press for my copy.
    I think you can tell a good children’s book by the desire of a child to hear it read to them again… and again! Or perhaps to see a child sitting by themselves engrossed in the story – turning each page and even reading aloud what they remember of the text. A good children’s book often goes beyond the narrative of the story itself and provides instead a platform from which the child’s own imagination takes flight.
    It is from this place that the stories you find here have been crafted. Written not, by the adult carefully layering imaginative themes upon any number of agenda’s, but instead written by the child within. These are tales where anything can happen and where adventures lurk around every corner. Each story begins with the desire to delight young children; to tantalise their imaginations; and to kindle their curiosity.
    Through each story’s natural progression, there are certainly lessons that parents can easily highlight to their children. However the main focus of each and every one of these books is for the reader and child alike to simply sit back, get drawn into the adventure, and enjoy a good tale.
    I hope you enjoy them!
