Here’s another beautiful gift book which would delight a little person in your life – just in time for Christmas stockings!
Eight simply gorgeous stories are included including some of my very favourites:
Summer by June Factor and Alison Lester
Max by Marc Martin
Grandpa and Thomas by Pamela Allen
Castles by Allan Baillie and Caroline Magerl
My Hippopotamus is on our Caravan Roof Getting Sunburnt by Hazel Edwards and Deborah Niland
Seadog by Claire Saxby and Tom Jellett
There’s a Sea in My Bedroom by Margaret Wild and Jane Tanner, and
Eve and Elly by Mike Dumbleton and Laura Wood
Personally I love all of these but Max and Seadog are truly stand out for me as are the exquisite illustrations of Caroline Magerl in Castles.
Any young reader will be delighted by this collection in its very attractive and sturdy binding (all the better to withstand the repeaed readings!) whether to read themselves or as a ‘snuggle up on a lap’ read-aloud.
Could not recommend this anymore enthusiastically – a truly superb choice for a special gift.
