Parents in Touch delights in four new picture books!

Parents in Touch has generously reviewed four of our latest picture books and here’s what they had to say:

The MOOsic Makers by Heather Pindar with illustrations by Barbara Bakos
Order here

This book, as you might guess from the title, is packed with puns, which are guaranteed to appeal to children – and which will elicit a few amused groans from parents! With bright lively illustrations from Barbara Bakos, this is a fun story about working together and sticking to what you love.’

Don’t Eat Pete! by Sue Walker with illustrations by Carlo Beranek
Order here

Be careful how you choose your babysitters!  Boll is always hungry, and Pete looks very tasty… But the tables are turned in a surprising way! Carlo Beranek’s lovely illustrations depict the animals beautifully, with gorgeously expressive faces. Told in catchy rhyming text, this is a laugh-aloud story.’

The Pirate Who Lost His Name by Lou Treleaven with illustrations by Genie Espinosa
Order here 

This is a story about… well, I can’t tell you his name, because he’s forgotten it. Too embarrassed to admit it, he sets off in search of it, meeting an incredible and wonderful cast of characters along the way in this hilarious story. With illustrations by Genie Espinosa, this is a fun-filled tale of a pirate in search of his identity.’

I, Pod by Rebecca Lisle with illustrations by Richard Watson
Order here 

Stone Age boy Pod is back for another Stone Age adventure, again illustrated by Richard Watson. Pod is a lovely character who always has fun, and young children will enjoy following his exploits and respond well to getting to know the character through a series of books – it’s always a good way to encourage children to re-visit the previous titles.’
