Review: Great and Small
Great and Small is an incredibly cute book about the underdog (or under-unicorn, I should say). It proves how important it is to give things a shot, and the significance of inclusion and diversity.Read More »

Picture Book Review: Winner Winner Bin Chicken Dinner
Everyone is familiar with the dreaded bin chicken. They do have quite the reputation these days, the poor ibis. This sequel to the popular “Bin Chicken” book by the same authors, gives us some more insight into the ibis’ life and this poor ibis is not let off the hook looking for a meal.
This book is a fun easy to read story about an ibis looking for some dinner. The poor ibis tries all kinds of places from French restaurants to fish and chips. The rhyming is perfect and great to read out loud, making it fun for all ages. I felt a little bad for the bin chicken whose relentless attempts to secure some food continue to get muddled. But the end is sweet and funny.
Winner Winner, Bin Chicken Dinner is a clever and enjoyable book that features themes of friendship and how we treat others. The illustrations are fantastic in great colours and my favourite are the ones of the seagulls acting tough and flexing their muscles.
