Kim's in Cairns for a few days playing with her three little grandkids—so I thought maybe you'd like a peek into her Book Depository wish list in absentia. It's a long list! So long in fact that Book Depository make her start again every so often. But these 5 are currently at the top:
2. Where’s the Pair?—a spotting book by Britta Teckentrup (The Memory Tree). Gorgeous pictures, fun rhymes, challenging puzzles: a great way to get ready for reading and to practice looking for details.
3. Little Red Riding Hood Not Quite by Yvonne Morrison, illustrated by Donovan Bixley—a second book from this great team. It’s the same general premise as The Three Bears Sort Of (in our fractured fairy tale grouping). It's very funny and relatable for children and parents.
4. Peas in a Pod by Tania McCartney, illustrated by Tina Snerling—quintuplets who seem the same in every way turn out to be very different girls, showing that people are more than the way they look. Lots of P words to play with.
