Today I share with you Michael’s Christmas books which I have been collecting over the last couple of months. I think I have a good little combination that he will hopefully spend many hours pouring over.
Mechanica – Lance Balchin
Set in the future when some parts of the world have become uninhabitable and the wildlife extinct, we follow Liberty Crisp’s field guide to the man-made ‘Mechanica” that 60 years after inception have gone rogue, are cross breeding and becoming violent.
A sci-fi cautionary tale with hope. One for the nerds!
Story Path – Madalena Matoso
A choose your own adventure book for the youngest of readers with full colour illustrations illustrations to ignite the imagination.
A great way to foster and encourage storytelling.
Maps -Aleksandra Mizielinska and Daniel Mizielinksi
Every child should own this book! A highly illustrated book of 52 maps that introduces children to world without leaving home. The book includes geographical features, flags, political borders, iconic personlaities, cultural events, animals and plants and much more.
A lesson in geography that is fun!
Piranhas Don’t Eat Bananas – Aaron Blabley
The tale of Brian the banana eating Piranha who causes the other piranhas no end of grief because…piranhas don’t eat bananas!!! Can he turn them around to his way of thinking?
A silly tale that will have your little ones LOLing. Because Bums.
The Great Journey – Agathe Demos and Vincent Godeau
We follow Red Beak the bird on his long journey to the jungle. Readers use the magic view finder provided to get a glimpse of all the goings on behind and amongst the people, buildings, animals and landscapes he passes on his travels.
The novelty factor of this book will be a hit with kids.
Stuck – Oliver Jeffers
Floyd gets his kite stuck in a tree and tries to knock it down with his shoe, but that too becomes stuck. Floyd does not give up and proceeds to throw item after item at the tree, each more ridiculous than the last. Will he ever get his kite down?
Another silly story by the brilliant Oliver Jeffers who will have your child in rapture over the ridiculous.
Michael is a dino loving little guy so when I had Piccolo Studio create a custom library bag there was only one fabric in my mind! Dinosaurs of course!!!
Thanks Fee xx
