Toys Then and Now

Toys Then and Now. Nadia Higgins. 2019. 24 pages. [Source: Library]

First sentence: Toys help us play. Pretend. Think. Some even help us move.

Premise/plot: This nonfiction book is for young beginning readers. The subject is toys then and now. It has three chapters: “Simple Toys,” “New Features,” and “Fads and Favorites.”

My thoughts: Is it horribly mean of me to think how little do you have to know to find this informational?! It probably is. It includes very basic facts about toys. Though they do get one thing wrong—at least. It is LEGO not Legos. Adding an “s” is wrong, wrong, wrong. You can have LEGO bricks or LEGO sets but not LEGOS. I do think young readers might enjoy this one.
