Review:

Five Little Men come to visit Earth from Outer Space, but finding it spoiled and neglected, they fly away, one by one. Luckily, by the end of this much-loved counting song, the world becomes a much better place to visit. Die-cut windows reveal glimpses of what spacemen observe as they fly around the world. (Nursery World 2008-04-24)

There cannot be anyone working in early years who is not aware of this popular number rhyme. Having it presented in book form, especially when it is as attractive as this, is a huge bonus. Children easily learn the poem off by heart and are then able to read the book for themselves! This builds self-esteem and confidence in emergent readers. How wonderful to be able to pick up a book that you feel you know really well.

The book itself is beautifully illustrated. The characters of the aliens (just look at the expressions on their faces) are cleverly drawn – and we are also given an excellent insight into why ‘one man flew away’. Look at the way that the earth has been portrayed in each of the double-page spreads and you will soon see that there is more to this book than first meets the eye. Pollution, traffic jams and the destruction of the rain forests are just some of the reasons why the little men in the flying saucer did not feel that it was a good idea to visit the Earth.

The final page of this book shoes a far more optimistic view, with illustrations of wind farms and children planting trees. This is not just a book about the little aliens, it also sends some very powerful messages about conservation. (EYE 2006-01-01)
