Upon receiving this book I thought it would probably be a lovely little story about how nice it is to breastfeed babies and tell you all about the benefits of a breastfed child. And that it is.
It tells how mummy breastfed wherever she was and how it comforted her child and how it made them feel close.
I did breastfeed my son, but only for about a week. He was a hungry hungry child and I just couldn't keep up. I also had little help with how to breastfeed and I ended up with very sore boobies. I wish I could have breastfed longer as I do think 'Breast Is Best'.
Now, as lovely as the premise for this book is, I don't understand it. I don't know what kind of age group this book is aimed at as it's a little bit creepy! I don't think my 3 yr old would quite appreciate me telling him all about mummys boobies because he doesn't understand that milk comes out.
Not just that but I also think the illustrations are very poor. The front page is of what looks like an older boy poking his mothers breats and the way half their face is a different colour kinda freaks me a bit too :s
I also found the font quite annoying to read. the curly joined up writing is cute yes, but unnecessary. I had to look twice at a few of the words to try and make out what they mean.
So, although I do like the idea of this story, the way that it's been done just gives me the heebies. If they had used a different illustrator and font I might be giving this a better review because the actual story itself is adorable.
I also didn't read this book to Oscar as I found it a tad inappropriate for a 3 yr old child who doesn't quite understand what boobs are for. And for now, he doesn't need to know.
I received no financial reward for this review, however we did receive the book for review purposes. This is my honest opinion. please see Disclosure tab for more info
