I am not a fan of books that actually scare children which is why I like this one so much, it takes a holiday that is known for its spookiness and made into an story with a delightful sense of bizarre with a side of sibling rivarly and surprise.
He’s imaginative, quirky, and has great intuition – Fabio the Worlds Greatest Flamingo Detective solves crime with his Giraffe friend George. The Case of the Missing Hippo will have you laughing and trying to solve the mysterious crime yourself.
‘Shhh…everyone is fast asleep on the farm.’
‘Who can you see cuddled up in the barn?’
The language is simple and tells a beautiful story about the hungry caterpillar heading to his bed upon some leaves, while saying goodnight to his friends along the way.
Do you have a budding stylist at home, or perhaps someone who likes to be creative and design things, or maybe they just love fashion? How to be a Fashion Designer will inspire your tween and encourage them to use their imagination to design outfits, and accessories from scratch.
Without a doubt this picture filled book of facts about awesome animals will be running off the shelves. I am serious, this book is not only packed full of interesting information but its also a colourful wonderland that will have your least enthusiastic reader turning the pages wanting to learn more.
There is a children’s picture book author whose books stand out on the book shelves, literally, because they are bright and colourful. Lucy Cousins books are familiar to children, especially the Maisy Books.
Personally I have never been the biggest fan of Maisy, however when this book jumped out at me…the bright colours and size largely responsible, I saw Maisy and the story she had to tell from a completely new perspective. So, today’s post is me sharing with you why this book has changed my view.
