Review: I love this series it’s really cute, it’s so educational, it teaches you so much but done in an easy way for young kids to understand.
In this one Melanie the mechanic shows you all the different things you can fix, how to stay safe doing them and what is required. I really love seeing these jobs being presented in such a positive way for girls.
The images are really pretty and the information is fed to you in short bursts so you can learn everything quickly. I love the detail that you get for the specific jobs, such as for this one fixing a tractor, you are shown everything and it’s great visualisation for young kids.
I do recommend this series for young kids, the books are short, engaging, educational and easy to read but very fun too.
