We have received another lovely parcel of books from The GMC group. This time I chose books for the slightly younger age groups being mainly for Jordanna and Izebella. Ryan already has lots to be getting on with.
The first are two classic fairytale stories which never seem to fade out or be forgot about.
The Elves & the shoemaker and Izebellas favourite Rapunzel. Both of these classic tales are retold in beautiful modern day books by John Cech. The art and illustrations throughout both books is pretty bold and beautiful and is the work of Fiona Samson.
At the back of both books is an “About the story” page this gives some pretty in depth information about how these two fairytales began and any truth, morals, or warnings in them. It’s quite an interesting read once you have read the story itself.
In the end Winifred learns to ignore the monsters and realised they can’t harm her. Again very colourful with some rather funky bright monsters. The author is Lane Fredrickson and illustrations by Michael Robertson.
The final book is for the very young ones and early readers. It’s called When I grow up.
The book is made from tough board and so perfect for little hands that may be tempted to rip pages, this one can’t be ripped. The pages give basic job descriptions of various well known professions and then children lift up a flap to reveal the job.
All of there titles can be found in the Children’s section at GMC books. Also in book shops and over on Amazon. Prices vary.
