Detective dog is on a mission to find the missing books from school. Another outstanding book by the talented Julia Donaldson
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.
You know a book is fairly special when there are themes of solidarity and equality, where men stand up for the rights of women, where a little girl marches with millions of other women for their future.
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.
In fairy tales, things will always feel more perfect than in life. The dashing prince will find the fairest maiden for his wife…Well…you might be shocked to hear this, but even fairies fart! (Jennifer Stinson)
Nosy Crow have a podcast in iTunes, it has been there since 2013 but I only discovered it today. The podcast has audio versions of some of the Nosy Crow books which you can read along with it. This reminded me of my childhood when I used to listen to the Storytime Magazine to stories such as, Gobolino the Witches Cat, when I went to bed at night.
