Reviews

 

"Having already bought and thoroughly enjoyed reading 'Going on an Aeroplane' with my three year old son, I was delighted to see 'Toilet Time ' had been published as a hard copy. I immediately bought it as a gift for a friend. Her daughter has found toilet training tricky and the book will not only open up discussions, it will also give her daughter a friendly character to identify with. The books are a great resource for anyone who wants to help children feel more confident about everyday experiences that they come across. I will be buying more titles."

 

"What a great idea for a series of books. It is hard to find up to date resources to help children through the various milestones in their lives and this series certainly delivers. My son thoroughly enjoys the book. I would definitely recommend them." (Going on an Aeroplane)

 

"Read a book about Suzie to my 20 month old daughter, really enjoyed the storyline and the concept, of a little girl who loves dressing up and pretending to be different people. read it on my kindle which I found a little bit difficult, as my daughter and I love turning pages and seeing the pictures and writing together. My daughter loves rhyming books and these books would be brilliant if published in hard/soft back and I would definitely buy them as I know my daughter would love them"  Julie Hands, Mum of 3

 

"My daughter (3) enjoyed the story. We have been discussing what it means to do things independently and she could really relate to Suzie. I like that it reinforces many different lessons that we're working on. Also the repetition of the days of the week is helpful." (Star Chart)

 

"The children enjoyed the rhyme and the basis of the story again." Day Nursery. (Hairdressers)

"I took my daughter who is 2 years and 9 months to the hairdressers last week, so the experience was still fresh in her mind. She really enjoyed the book, especially the "snip, snip" the spraying of the water and the brightly coloured cloak, all things she could relate to." (Hairdressers)

 

"Both children were engaged in this story and loved guessing what she was going to be next." (Dressing up)

 

"A nice story and the children really enjoyed the rhyme." Day Nursery. (Moving house)

 
"Showing children that there is no need to be afraid of this experience-it's fun. The rhyme is clever and I like that Suzie is being praised for trying new things." Nursery worker. (Hairdressers)

 

"Sophia(3,1/2) thought the story was very nice and Suzie was very brave. Repetition of the story helped and Sophia liked the emotional journey Suzie took too."

"We very much enjoyed the book. My son (3) enjoyed putting the stars onto the page. All lessons are very relevant to what we are trying to teach him. N.B He woke up this morning and asked for Suzie. We will definitley download copies!!!" (Star Chart.)

 

"I haven't had a chance to look at your website but we really enjoyed your book and would definitley buy a copy. Great idea, especially with a star chart."

 

"Hi, I love the Suzie’s Toilet Time book – a beautifully illustrated story with a simple, easy to read text.  I wondered if you were going to publish a boy version of this same book?" (Lady in Australia.)

 

"Yes Charlotte and thanks it was brilliant for my little girl, I have already recommended it to her school. Thanks again and happy new year."

 

"We have tried many apps, books, social stories before to help Eliza get to grips with toilet issues. She is 7 soon and still in pull ups. It had been a long ongoing thing which included even getting her in to bathrooms as she struggles with confined spaces. Then sitting on a "chair with a hole" took months of encouragement and trying various seat aids etc (We now have a toilet seat that has a built in kids seat in the lid so we can all switch as we please). My bathroom is full of laminated pictures so if you come to our house and use the bathroom, there are social stories and instructions everywhere. - Recently we got this book - Suzie's Toilet Time and it has helped nudge Eliza a bit further. She enjoys reading it and has started to take herself off to the toilet without prompting. OK so we may need to work on a few things (timings especially like not leaving it till last minute then stripping in the middle of class and peeing on the teachers cardigan.....) but this week on the way to the doors at the end of school she stopped a teacher and told them she needed to go to the toilet! Huge step forward. It may take us weeks, months or even years to get this but she is trying so hard and it is slowly coming together."

 

"We loved the book! My little girl (Suzie) took it to nursery for her teacher to read to the class! We really want 'Suzie starts school' so I will keep checking for when your new titles come out!..."

Suzie goes on an Aeroplane

After which my child who has autism ate tried a fish finger and now eats them I highly recommend this book 5 out of 5"

 

Autism Parent Empower."Just received this fabulous children's book to review from Suzie Books. Well done Charlotte Olson - wonderful book and lovely to see such a vast collection on offer"

 

Suzie goes to the Hairdresser. "We have read it before bed every night since we got it. I'm over the moon with it as he has asked to get his haircut so he can look like 'a handsome boy' we shall see how his next hair cut goes, fingers crossed it goes well."

 

"Suzie Goes to School has really helped my daughter overcome her anxieties around starting school in September. Reading the book prompted her to ask lots of questions; she now understands what to expect and is starting to become excited about her first day at school. A brilliant little book! Thank you."

 

"Charlotte's books are lovely. They are warm and encouraging, engaging the reader in real life scenarios with personable language. They are short enough for wandering minds to stay focused, and the illustrations are attractive and endearing. Sammy's New Food Week gives praise to the child on every page, helping the reader to also feel a sense of achievement if they are in a similar situation. Five stars!"

 

"***** 5 stars. Thanks for sending me your book to read. I loved it, I especially would like to give it to my grandkids, who will be making their first plane ride to the mainland from Hawaii at Christmas. The illustrations are very detailed and I especially liked the rhyming along with the story. Is there somewhere else you want a rating? I would be happy to give."
