Fantastic for children not quite ready to read chapter books -

These really work for children who aren't quite ready to ready chapter books, but don't want the simple picture books any longer. And they're quite amusing (if old-fashioned) for adults, too!

There's a lot to discuss - not just the story, but the use of language, the detailed pictures etc - and overall these are books you can read to a small child, and which an older child will still enjoy and want to read independently.

Happy Families -

Possibly the best collection of stories for children ever. They deal with the realities of life with wit and wisdom. I buy them for every child I know.

Shocking -

I started to read Mrs Vole the Vet to my daughter because her school were teaching about vets.

Key messages: Mrs vole does not have a husband... She works hard as a vet but according to the author cannot cope; she needs a boyfriend...

Requirements – nice smile and a big cheque book????? Etc, etc

If this is the trash we are filling our young minds with than we are responsible for the outcome.

Furious...

Based on this would not introduce these books to my child nor school.
