Our new section is devoted to your reviews. We’re inviting families to share a book together – read it aloud, talk about it, think about what they enjoyed about the story, illustrations or themes and tell us about the conversations the book prompted. We hope this will be a useful resource for other parents.
Our first review is about Corey’s Rock, Sita Brahmachari, illus. Jane Ray Otter
With Halloween approaching our focus book has a spooky theme, it’s The Grotlyn by Benji Davies.
In Rubi’s town rumours are spreading of strange noises and objects disappearing and she has a strange rhyme in her head about a Grotlyn visiting houses at night. This is a mysterious rhyming picturebook to cuddle up and share, with wonderfully rich illustrations and a surprise ending.
We were very pleased to be interviewed by Just Imagine Story Centre for one of their
brilliant ‘In the Reading Corner’ magazine podcasts recently on the theme ‘Reading in the Early Years’.
