I can not tell you enough about the joy I felt when I opened this book for the first time. I felt warm inside, I smiled a huge smile and I knew instantly that this is one that I really want to share with children. It is something that they can really relate to, and adults too who might hold fond memories of jumping in puddles.
Do you want to count backwards – 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…BLAST OFF! Zooming around the Solar System in a rocket ship?
I read a lot of children’s chapter books, but none have been quite like this one, its story is fresh and real, with an injection of history that brings it all into a well paced adventure.
Marvellous Mummy is a beautiful book to celebrate the relationship between a child and their mummy at anytime of the year. It is a fun little book that celebrates all the different traits of a mum, including those times when she is grumpy, and mothers day is the perfect day to read it.
I am a big advocate of having Non Fiction books readily available for children to read. They are great learning tools that often don’t make the reader feel like they are learning because they are having so much fun, yes learning can be fun.
Detective dog is on a mission to find the missing books from school. Another outstanding book by the talented Julia Donaldson
