The Ish Mother picture book reviews and giveaway!

The Ish Mother has just posted some lovely reviews for three picture books published at the end of last year:

Bears Don’t Eat Egg Sandwiches by Julie Fulton and illustrated by Rachel Suzanne

In this clever little story, Jack is just settling down to a lunch of egg sandwiches when a very hungry bear comes to visit. But bears don’t eat egg sandwiches – and this bear has his eye on a rather larger lunch! This is a really fun one to read, as the bear gets increasingly annoyed with Jack’s offer of egg sandwiches so you can really go to town with your angry bear voice! It could be a bit frightening for more sensitive children, but it’s great to see how Jack outsmarts the bear in the end. The illustrations are very charming and will make you crave egg sandwiches!!’

Game of Stones by Rebecca Lisle and illustrated by Richard Watson

This is a good book for lovers of word play, not only because of the tongue-in-cheek TV reference in the title, but because of the puntastic names that Pod comes up with for his games! It’s also a good book for encouraging children to make things for themselves and find their own remedies for boredom. Watson’s illustrations are very entertaining too!’

Beware the Mighty Bitey by Heather Pindar and illustrated by Susan Batori

This is another fantastic one for reading aloud, as you can really enjoy mimicking the animals and their instruments! It’s another slightly perilous one but don’t worry – the piranhas get their comeuppance!! Again, the illustrations are full of fun  with plenty for little ones to spot.’

If you like the sound of these then enter the giveaway of one copy of each of these books!
