Title: The mighty elephant in the land of Kachoo

Author:Tina Scotford

ABOUT :

I love the Kachoo series and we’ve been recieving one each month with our Kidsbookclub.co.za subscription.

These quirky books are written in rhyme and contain all sorts of interesting facts about the animals that live in the African plains.

Engaging from the minute you open the book the illustrations are captivating and comical.

In this book the mighty elephant is stomping through the woods breaking the trees. The animals complain that the elephant is a messy pest . He tries to be gentle but because of his size the trees still get broken.

Poor elephant feels very sad. He can’t do anything right.

A great fire breaks out and the elephant saves the animal friends proving his trunk and size can be very useful.

A wonderful lesson that each of us is perfect just as we are.

Title: My Big Word Book

Published by: Priddy books

ABOUT :

This big board book is the perfect first word books for little fingers to page through and “read

Bright, colourful realistic photos of every day words help children reinforce the vocabulary they have learnt.

By the time babies reach their first birthday they will have learned all the sounds needed to speak their native language so the more stories you read aloud, the more words your little one will be exposed to and the better he or she will be able to talk.

Hearing words also helps to build a rich vocabulary of words in a baby’s brain.

Children whose parents frequently talk and read to them know more words by age 2 than children who have not been read to and first word books acts as dictionaries for little ones to reinforce the vocabulary they have learnt.

A Stampede of Dinosaurs

BY: Priddy Books

Illustrated: Lisa & Damien Barlow

Age 18 +

This hard covered book is full of friendly dinosaurs with clever shapes and textures to encourage little hands to explore and stimulate your toddlers senses .

The bright illustrations are inviting as your inquisitive toddler meets their new dinosaur friends and learns opposites through entertaining playful pages.

Bear is dinosaur crazy and this book is one of his favourites.

I love that it teaches a first skill needed. ( opposites) and that the bright illustrations allow for reinforcing colours and counting.

This sturdy book will withstand many hours of toddler reading and is small enough to pop into a bag or keep in the car for calm down time.
