Another Book About Bears

Another Book About Bears

"Quirky and even crazy at times, with beautiful graphic design depicted in lovely muted shades, Another book about bears is another triumph for the Buntings. I recommend it for homes and libraries everywhere" Read more at The Book Chook.

We Wear Pants

We Wear Pants

"Kids will love searching for different animals; they’ll love searching for the same animals wearing different clothes to the page before._ We Wear Pants_ celebrates being able to dress ourselves (something I’m thankful for every day!) It also makes an excellent choice for bedtime because parents and child can observe and discuss, choose funny parts, read the speech bubbles, answer questions and giggle together.

Poor Little Rabbit

Poor Little Rabbit

"I loved that Mühle weaves interactivity into the tale, inviting kids to blow on the wound, cover it with a bandaid etc. The artwork is perfectly aimed at toddlers too. Importantly, there’s a happy ending, and I know Storytime kids will be bubbling with stories about their own medical dramas to share! " Read more at The Book Chook.

I Want to Be in a Scary Story

"I Want to Be in a Scary Story lends itself to being read aloud in two voices, one the enthusiastic little monster in his own large purple font, and the second the calm voice of the narrator, keen to put little monster into scary situations. The story thus unfolds as dialogue, with Taylor and Jullien guiding the read-alouder with text, font, punctuation and illustrations. I can certainly see the book being a great vehicle for reader’s theatre, and it will appeal to a wide age range as a read-aloud" Read more at The Book Chook.

Say Zoop!

"Here’s a new children’s picture book that invites kids to interact with it. The first page addresses young readers with a question: “Hello, would you like to play?” and away we go. We press dots and make louder noises on the bigger ones. We change noises, use robot voices, have fun, all the while surrounded by colourful dots and lines. And then these shapes sort themselves onto a background of five horizontal lines that look a lot like a musical staff." Read more at The Book Chook.

Learning Activities for The Wrong Book

"The Wrong Book is one of those special children's picture books that are not so much a linear story as an invitation to play. This makes them perfect to use as a read aloud with a group of kids you don't know, or a group that is not yet used to listening to a story requiring concentration and imagination. In my experience, kids love these bookish games! They remind us that, most of all, reading is supposed to be fun and enjoyable.

The Pigeon Needs a Bath!

The Pigeon Needs a Bath!

"Smell? What smell? I don t smell. YOU smell. The Pigeon needs a bath! Except, well, the Pigeon's really not so sure about that... Besides, he took a bath last month! Maybe." Read more at The Book Chook.

Let’s Play

"What do kids love to do? Play! So let’s link reading with play in their minds. Let’s Play is perfect for this. Tullet speaks to kids through the yellow dot, which encourages kids to create a line for its amazing journey through the book." Read more at The Book Chook.

That is NOT a Good Idea!

That is NOT a Good Idea!

"From the first enigmatic meeting between Hungry Fox and Plump Goose, Willems' deceptively simple story is accompanied by expressive cartoon-style illustrations children will love." Read more at The Book Chook.

Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!

Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!

"All the Mo Willems books I’ve read have been wonderful. In Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, the Pigeon quite understandably wants to drive the bus and keeps asking the listening kids to allow him to do so. His excellent bribes and complaints sound awfully like the same ones kids would use! It’s this kind of interactivity that my kids adore - the same sort of involvement you see in a great pantomime. Children just love to be the ones bossing the Pigeon around." (WalkerBooks)

Hug this Book

Hug this Book

"Hug This Book! is written in an energetic and rhythmic way that has kids giggling from the get-go. Benaglia’s illustrations are reminiscent of comic book art, with lots of enthusiastic splotches of colour and flowing ink sketches that add even more energy and fun to each page." Read more at The Book Chook.

The Book with No Pictures

"What the book does so cleverly is that it invites kids to play, and to join in a delightful joke on those who are reading aloud to them. You see, books with no pictures are made up of words, and words must be read by a read-alouder no matter what. No matter what! In this way Novak compels one-who-reads-to-kids to utter strange words like BLORK and BLuuRF, to sing silly songs and make preposterous statements featuring robot monkeys and hippos named Boo Boo Butt."
