‘This is exactly the kind of book that I love to read aloud to groups of children’ Books for Topics reviews 3 New Picture Books!

Books for Topics just posted a wonderful series of reviews for three of our newest picture books:

Not My Hats! by Tracy Gunaratnam with illustrations by Alea Marley:

Everything about ‘Not My Hats!’ makes for a very happy storytime, from the brightly patterned illustrations to the slightly random cast of characters to the hilarious sets of rhyming strings. Tracy Gunaratnam is a master of rhyme and rhythm and there is something really delightful in the way the lines in this book roll off the tongue.’

AdoraBULL by Alison Donald with illustrations by Alex Willmore:

Whimsical and endearing… This story is humorous and the accompanying illustrations are filled with witty details that are pleasing to both young children and adults alike.’

Bonkers About Beetroot by Cath Jones with illustrations by Chris Jevons:

A truly original picture book…This is a really funny story that is suitable for a laugh-out-loud story time in EYFS and KS1.’

Thanks, Alison!
