1. Sssh We Have A Plan- By Chris Haughton
Four friends, three big and one little, are out for a walk. Suddenly, they spot it – a beautiful bird perched high in a tree! They simply MUST have it and – SHH! – they have a PLAN. So they tip-toe, tip-toe very slowly, nets poised – “Ready one … ready two … ready three … GO!” But, at the turn of the page, we find a ridiculous bunch of very tangled characters and a blissfully oblivious bird, flying away. One hilarious foiled plan after another and it’s clear that this goofy trio CANNOT catch that elusive birdie! But the littlest of this group, a quiet spectator up until now, knows that a bit of kindness and sweetness can go a lot further than any elaborate scam. Will his three friends follow his gentle lead or will they get themselves into even more trouble?
2. Oi Frog – By Kes Gray
From the award-winning Kes Gray and the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, Jim Field, comes an hilarious rhyming tale about a frog who discovers that all animals have their special places to sit!
Cats sit on mats, hares sit on chairs, mules sit on stools and gofers sit on sofas, but Frog does not want to sit on a log! Jam-packed with animals and silliness, this original rhyming story will have young children in fits of laughter.
3. Dear Zoo – Rod Campbell
‘I wrote to the zoo to send me a pet . . .’
Rod Campbell’s classic lift-the-flap book Dear Zoo has been a firm favourite with toddlers and parents alike ever since it was first published in 1982.
Young children will love lifting the flaps to discover the animals the zoo has sent – a monkey, a lion and even an elephant! But will they ever manage to send the perfect pet?
With bright, bold artwork, a catchy refrain and a whole host of favourite animals, Dear Zoo is a must for every child’s bookshelf – and the thick card pages, chunky cased cover and sturdy flaps make it perfect for small hands.
It’s late at night and Mr Bear is desperately trying to sleep–but Mrs Bear snores so he tries Baby Bear’s room, but Baby Bear is pretending to be an aeroplane so there’s no peace there. Room by room Mr Bear goes through the house trying to find somewhere to sleep.
Bright colourful pictures accompany the simple, repetitive text of this delightful storybook. Children will delight in all the wonderful sound effects and Mr Bear’s reaction–“TICK-TOCK…went the living room clock…TICK-TOCK, TICK-TOCK. CUCKOO! CUCKOO! “Oh NO!” said Mr Bear, “I can’t stand THIS.” So he went off to sleep in the kitchen.” And parents will have plenty of empathy for poor Mr Bear’s predicament. (Ages 3 and over)
5. Fox’s Socks – By Julia Donaldson
“Poor old fox has lost his socks. He looks in a chest and finds a vest.”
Can you help fox find his socks? Are they in the kitchen or under the stairs? Are they inside the clock or hidden in a chest? Lift the flaps and find out!
Tales From Acorn Wood: Fox’s Socks is a delightful animal tale from the bestselling team of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.
