We love it when new books arrive in stock and we were VERY excited to get our hands on this new picture book! A very entertaining follow on from the marvellous The Day the Crayons Quit, we get another glimpse at the hard life of a crayon! (Apart from Neon Red Crayon that is, he seems to be having a great time!) As it got passed around the office we all had a good chuckle! With wonderful illustrations by Oliver Jeffers, it’s great for thinking about colours, art and how we take care of our things.
We felt quite moved by this tender story which sees Syd and his Grandad go off on an adventure together, but at the end of the day when it is time to go home Grandad decides to stay behind. This picture book has wonderful illustrations throughout and is packed full of colour. It’s a lovely way of thinking about the people we love going away. A great book to add to the collection.
A really moving read, suitable for top juniors and up. Mark doesn’t want to face another round of treatment for his illness and decides he must climb a mountain instead. It’s not an easy journey for him and his trusty companion Beau, the family dog. And it’s not easy for those he’s left behind either. It might make you cry, but it will make you smile too.
An action packed young teen read that will have you furiously turning the page! The themes in this book are very topical and like all good stories this makes you think about seeing things from another perspective. Perhaps we shouldn’t always believe what we are told. It’s full of mega twists and turns, I actually felt rather worn out for the characters by the end of it!
And Not forgetting the non fiction....We send out so many fantastic non fiction titles every term that it only seems fair to shout about these too!
See Inside Exploration and Discovery – An Usborne Flap book
Exploration has been a popular topic for a while now so we were thrilled to get this new book in. From ancient explorers to travelling in space, it’s full of lots of flaps and interesting facts! Good for a range of ages too which is always a bonus.
