Freddy has recently been sent two new titles from Harper Collins which have a school theme. The picture books are a perfect introduction to the concept of school which is particularly valuable to us with Freddy due to start school in September.
Come to School Too Blue Kangaroo
When Lily starts school she is a bit nervous at being new. Blue Kangaroo goes with her on her first day and watches as the children paint, draw, do sums and listen to stories. Blue Kangaroo is delighted by all the lovely activities that Lily is doing. In all the excitement, Lily leaves Blue Kangaroo at school. Next morning when she arrives in class, the teacher discovers some wonderful paintings and drawings that have been done overnight. Who could have done them?!
Tim, Ted and The Pirates
When Tim goes to school, his imagination comes to life as he and Ted listen to the teacher's story. They embark on an exciting underwater adventure, meeting some scary pirates looking for treasure! The fast paced, rhyming text and the quirky illustrations lend themselves perfectly to the thrilling story. Freddy was riveted! The funny ending made him giggle and he is now looking forward to listening to stories when he goes to school!
Both of these delightful picture books are perfect at calming the nerves and allaying any fears that little ones may have at the prospect of starting school in September. They are very reassuring for pre-schoolers. We are enjoying reading them and having discussions about all the exciting things that Freddy has got to look forward to!
