From early morning until it’s time for bed, mama and papa are teaching their little trucks how to dig, scoop, and push at the construction site. This tough and burly crew scoop up dirt, dump it, lay BIG steel beams, mix the cement and roll it flat; at the end of the day they give a TOOT TOOT to celebrate their hard work.
Yirruwa Yirrilikenuma-langwa (When We Go Walkabout), is a beautiful celebration of indigenous culture, where each picture is a work of art and celebrates the Aboriginal way of passing on knowledge through the traditional stories of their ancestors.
There is so much to love about this book especially if you want to learn how to say “I love you” in English, Spanish, Japanese, Mandarin, and French. With some words on each page and buttons to press to hear the pronunciation of “I Love You”, this book has the right combination to engage your child in languages by site and sound.
If you haven’t chosen a book for your chapter book readers stocking yet then I suggest grabbing a copy of Terry Denton’s Wombat & Fox: The Whole Story. There will be lots of laughter and mayhem, and your young reader will not want to put it down (I know I didn’t want to).
Say Zoop! is a book like no other, Herve’ Tullet is unique in his approach to literacy and learning. This whimsical, colourful, interactive book will have your young child singing, SHOUTING, and whispering their way through it.
