Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell …
… Day 4 May #AtoZfavbooks challenge.
Dear Zoo is an absolute must-have classic children’s picture book. My children read it … over and over until the flaps were worn out … and now I read it to my grandchildren … over and over (flaps still intact but tiring at the time of writing).
This is the story of a little boy who wrote to the zoo to send him a pet and all the animals they send him. Little ones love opening the flaps and discovering the lion (who is too fierce), the camel (who is too grumpy), and the monkey (who is too naughty) and who are all found unsuitable and have to be sent back to the zoo. Luckily at the end of the book the people at the zoo send him the perfect pet.

Better Buckle Up …
… Day 2 May #AtoZfavbooks challenge.
Day 2 of #AtoZfavbooks challenge and I’m featuring my very own Better Buckle Up.
Having your child securely fastened in his car seat is critical for his safety … but often they don’t appreciate being strapped in. My grandson would scream as soon as he even saw his car seat. This story tries to make car safety fun.
“Ollie doesn’t want to sit in his car seat until his mum points out all the exciting things people do that requires them to wear their seat belts.”
Not published until 18th May, the book is available to pre-order on Amazon and has paperback and ebook editions. Check out the bright illustrations here.
P.S. Don’t forget to share your favourite book title starting with the letter B in the comments below or post them on facebook or twitter with the hashtag #AtoZfavbooks so I can find them.
… 26 letters, 26 books, 26 days.
Starting May 1st, I’m doing the #AtoZfavbooks challenge and I invite you join my in sharing a book title you love for every letter of the alphabet?
The rules are easy:
- start with titles beginning with A on 1st May, B on the 2nd May and so on.
- any genre goes. I’ll be focusing on Kids fiction but you could choose crime, romance, horror or mix them up as you please.
- share your top picks on twitter, facebook, pinterest or any other social media.
- use the hashtag #AtoZfavbooks so we can find your posts.
- titles starting with ‘The’ or ‘A’ should have use the next word in the title. eg The Hunger Games would go under ‘H’ for Hunger Games, not ‘T’ for The.
