School Library Association Reviews

Two of our books have been featured in the Summer issue of the School Library Association (SLA) journal. The School Library Association is a member society which is committed to supporting librarians and those who work to promote libraries as well as literacy and reading. Part of the service they provide is a quarterly journal where they discuss the latest news and trends in the library world as well as recommend some amazing books.

We were very pleased to see two of our books recommended in the Summer 2015 issue.

Preposterous Rhinoceros RGB LR JPEG

Preposterous Rhinoceros by Tracy Gunaratnam

“A lovely tale, amusingly illustrated, which will be perfect to read aloud to any infant class. Funny animals getting things wrong: what more could we ask? […] First and foremost books should be about enjoyment but having engaged with this text, there are actually many opportunities to talk about the English language. […] This is a thoroughly enjoyable book which will work well in classrooms from [Reception] to year 2. “

Daniel O’Dowd was ever so Loud by Julie Fulton

“This picture book tells Daniel’s story through lively rhyme in an engaging series of colourful illustrations depicting the dramatic effect his loud voice can have on his classmates, teacher, zoo animals and even a lighthouse – but can his vocal talent help save the world? […] This amusing story celebrates the joy of having a special skill, using it to help others and the value of listening and would be both fun and noisy to read aloud. “
