New Books for October 2013
We have some tactile books this month for little ones with the soft and colourful Lorries and Buses and the pop-up and tab book Hungry or Not, Mr Croc? While Sugarlump and the Unicorn follows the story of a little rocking horse whose wishes come true.
By Karen Wallace
Each little book is presented in vibrant colours and patterns and with appealing characters. The bold patterns are perfect for very young children and they can be encouraged to join in the sounds of a ‘brrm, brrm car’ and a ‘beep beep bus’.
The books also come with a handy strap and a useful sticky pad that can be stuck to a variety of surfaces including car windows, tables and high chairs, making it the books ideal for when you and your little one are ‘on the go’.
Hungry or Not, Mr Croc?
By Jo Lodge
3 - 5 years
By Julia Donaldson, Lydia Monks
A little rocking horse is the star of the latest title from bestselling Julia Donaldson.
When the rocking horse decides that he’d prefer to be outside trotting along the roads and fields, with a swirl of magic from the unicorn, that’s where he finds himself. But he soon realises that pulling carts is hard work - he would rather be a race horse, and then a circus horse - but what life would be best for this little horse?
Donaldson once again delivers a beautifully-told story in addictive verse, especially its repeated refrain of the very sparkly magical unicorn - ‘Seven times she turned around and- the unicorn’s wish came true!’
