This year I have read so many Junior series but have been unable to share them all. Here are four series that are funny, silly and sometimes a little gross.
Ho! Ho! Ho! There is a Hippopotamus on Our Roof Eating Christmas Cake, dancing, sitting on a Christmas tree and making a list for Santa. Hazel Edwards delights us with the imagination of a child and the celebration of Christmas.
This book bring the ballet to life in picture book form and introduces children to the delights of Tchaikovsky’s music.
A young knight (boy), protects his castle (his play equipment) with a (cardboard) sword. Beware, he is watching and listening and inspiring the imagination of children.
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.
So before I get any older I plan on sharing this book with as many people as I can, which I hope inspires everyone to encourage children to be as free and whimsical in their imagination of what they want to be someday…or even today.
