I am still working my way through my July book which I started before joining up with the bookclub. I will finish it very soon though and then hope to join in the review for August's book!
In the meantime I can make a different contribution - we are always reading new children's books and the highlight of this month was: Rhinos Don't Eat Pancakes by Anna Kemp & Sarah Ogilvie.
Daisy's parents are always too busy to listen to her. Actually Listen. Then one day a huge purple Rhino comes to stay, but Daisy's parents are too busy to notice or hear her as she repeatedly tries to inform them! Until all the pancakes disappear...
This is an absolutely delightful story with a little subtle lesson mainly for parents - to take time to REALLY listen to our children... before it's too late and all the pancakes are gone!
My 3 year old adores and grasps the story fully. The 2 year old loves the illustrations and loves listening to the story but is more enamored with the slightly simpler Dogs don't do Ballet also by Anna Kemp & Sarah Ogilvie.
Another sweet story about Biff, a little dog with big dreams.
So there's my review - hopefully it's useful to someone!
