Oh No, Bobo! by Donna David. Reviewed by Sharon Tregenza



This absolutely delightful picture book by author Donna David and illustrator Laura Watkins is pure joy to read.

Bobo, the monkey, wants a more comfortable sleep and goes in search of something cosy to rest on. Surely it's fine if he just steals a feather from this bird or pinches a little fur from this animal? But this endearing little chap soon learns an important lesson about asking permission first. 

This is a gentle, accessible book that teaches children about personal boundaries and consent without being in the least preachy. Watkins bold tropical colours and David's simple entertaining story are a perfect match. I loved this book. I'm sure it'll soon be on all young children's book shelves and in schools too.

"Oh No, Bobo!" is part of QED's "storytime series" and a Next Steps page at the back provides guidance for parents and teachers.

Paperback: 24 pages
Age Range: 4 - 6 years

Sharon, this sounds a really useful little picture book - I like the clear and lively illustrations. I'll look out for it when Library Storytimes resume. Thanks.

I have never seen a miracle like this in my entire life.
My husband left me and my 5 year old boy for over 9 months,
I was so traumatized and frustrated, because of the love I have for my husband I seeked for help from different places to bring him back to me but there was no difference. Until my mother introduced me to ( DR DAWN) this doctor promised me that my husband will come back to me in 48 hours after I explained everything to him, and to my greatest surprise my husband called me after 48 hours and was begging me to forgive him that he will never leave me again, all thanks to Dr DAWN because for over 3 year's now I have been happy with my husband and he treats me like a queen,
Contact DR DAWN, if you have any kind of problem.
