I’m very excited to announce that Book Depository are running big discounts on books until this Friday (9th November 2018).
It’s a great opportunity to stock up on Christmas/holiday reading. Just remember that each day, different books are on sale, so if you do see something you like, don’t hesitate until after midnight. I will have a look at the sale books for the day in the morning and recommend some titles (with a short exert), just to give you a guide if you are a bit lost.
Giraffes Can’t Dance – This book has been a bestseller for over 15 years and is perfect for ages 0 -4. It’s a triumphant story about a Gerald the Giraffe who wants to join the other animals and dance! But can a giraffe dance? This book is funny, has joyful illustrations and comes with a small moral about tolerance and daring to be different.
Monkey Puzzle – One of my favourite books. It’s a story written by the creators of the Gruffalo, that follows a lost Monkey through the jungle as he tries to find his mum. A kind butterfly tries to help, but they keep finding the wrong animals instead. As always, Julia Donaldson’s rhyming is on point, the images are spectacular and the storyline will definitely provide giggles for the readers.
Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus – Your instruction from the bus driver, as the reader, is to make sure you Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus. But watch the book unravel in speech bubbles and images as the pigeon does anything possible to drive the bus!
The 39-Storey Treehouse – Suitable for ages 5+, this is a fantastic series which started off with a 13-Storey Treehouse. Basically, the series is about 2 boys who invite the reader to join them in their treehouse that keeps on getting bigger with each book. In the 39-Storey Treehouse, expect to come across the world’s highest trampoline, a “No NOT Swimming Chocolate Waterfall”, a Volcano used for toasting marshmallows and many more crazy inventions. Even though the book has a lot of pages, there are LOTS of illustrations to help your child imagine this crazy world of Andy and Terry. I would definitely recommend this, especially for those with creative imaginations and inventive minds!
