This was my first time reading a Melrose and Croc adventure and I have to say, I was impressed. These two characters are adorable! This is the sixth book about Melrose and Croc, and this one definitely made me keen to pick up the other ones – and anything else by Emma Chichester Clark.
Review – Magic Beach
I was gifted this book as part of a baby present from a family friend and hadn’t actually read it before – despite that fact it was first published in 1990 and is a well known Australian classic. Now it is one of my go to picture books for bed time readings. It is a beautiful whimsical story that will charm young readers and children.
Everyone has been to a magical beach, somewhere that is special to you. I found this book particularly nostalgic as it reminded me of my own childhood with endless summers spent at the beach. It is a rhyming book with wonderful words that give the reader a sense of melancholy. It is great for medium readers, as well as little ones that will be enthralled by the magical beach. It is also brilliantly imaginative – with every second page being a fabled possibility that will encourage kids own creativity.
Review – Where is the Green Sheep?
This is a fun rhyming book that revolves around the search for the ever elusive green sheep. On the search, we are introduced to different sheep on every page doing silly activities that will delight both children and adults.
