Guff

Sometimes I wonder whether picture books are written for us the adults too, or whether something just resonates with us that it just feels that way.  This is how this book was for me,  first of all I loved it – its hard not to love Aaron Blabey books – and second I think we have all had or have a guff in our lives whether it be a fabric or human friend.

I love this book, and was very excited to read this to one of my baby storytime groups just recently where it was well received by all.  In fact, the babies were so attentive to the book and I had never seen anything like it before for such an age group.

I have chosen to share this book with you because I think it is one of those little gems that people may dismiss as just being a sticker book when it is actually so much more.  This book not only supports literacy development but also fine motor skills, colour recognition and the ability to pattern and number match.

Book of the Year – Early Childhood

Congratulations to  Johanna Bell and Dion Beasley on their win in the category Book of the Year: Early Childhood. I can see why this won in its category, the story is impacting and the illustrations are on a whole other level, their childlike nature is mesmerising.  The pictures give me a real sense of Canteen Creek and those cheeky animals.
