Let’s Go! On a Tractor
Let’s Go! On a Train
Rosalyn Albert and Natalia Moore
Catch A Star
These two new titles in the Let’s Go! transport series offer further journeys of discovery for toddlers.
Told in Rosalyn Albert’s catchy rhyming story-telling narratives and Natalia Moore’s bright, lively scenes they’re just right to engage the very young.
The tractor driver in the first title takes readers around the farm introducing the farmer, crops, animals and their sounds, and some very squelchy mud – it’s all in a days work.
The train of the second book is an old-fashioned steam train – a very shiny one. We meet the driver and a ticket collector as the train wheels click clack through the countryside with the two young narrators relating the events of their long journey that lasts from morning to evening.
These sturdy books are just the right size for small hands to hold while they retell themselves the stories once an adult has shared them.
Gregory Goose is on the Loose! At the Fair
Gregory Goose is on the Loose! Up the Mountain
Hilary Robinson and Mandy Stanley
Catch A Star
Gregory Goose is on the loose again at new locations in two new catchy rhyming hide and seek adventures.
Gregory is an ace when it comes to hiding himself away in plain sight – even this adult reviewer had to search really hard a couple of times to locate him, so these books will certainly hone the observation skills of your little ones.
Whether you’re feeling in summery style or a snowy wintry mood, Mandy Stanley’s bright, captivating illustrations provide plenty to talk about on every spread, and what delight to discover the whereabouts of Gregory at every turn of the page.
Where’s Mrs Queen?
Ingela P Arrhenius
This addition to the deservedly popular. sturdy, felt flap series follows the same 5 spreads format with the final flap covering a surprise mirror – something that fascinates even babies just a few months old.
Here the location is London, and in the search for ‘Mrs Queen’ little ones will find a policeman, (I’d have preferred officer here), the driver of a double-decker bus, a soldier wearing a busby, said Queen in a carriage before they all assemble to ask ‘And where are you?’
With those attention grabbing, bright, retro style illustrations of Ingela Arrhenius, this board book is great of fun for the very youngest.
