Rawr!

Being a dinosaur is hard. They are so misunderstood. They just want to fit in - but being so big has its drawbacks!  One big 'rawr' and everyone runs for cover. But here's a little secret, 'rawr' just means hello! Dinosaur soon discovers that he can use his size to his advantage.

The soft, cloth dinosaur insert in the cover and simple, clean illustrations would appeal to young children, particularly those interested in dinosaurs. Gentle humour throughout engenders an empathy for poor old dinosaur who just wants to be one of the group.

Ideal for 2 to 3 years

Chick's sick

Poor chick is sick. No eggs. Chick sick.

Enlisting the help of the farmyard friends, Chick tries to lay an egg. Nothing seems to be working. That is until helpful snake waits one night, under Chick, only to discover that Chick isn't sick after all!

An interesting rhyming text written with very few words, mostly just with the use of nouns and verbs:

Duck clutches. Sheep squeezes. Duck clenches. Chick wheezes.

Simple colourful illustrations would add to the appeal for 3 to 5 year olds. A companion book to Duck's stuck!
