This is our first book, 'Wakey Wakey Big Brown Bear' by Tracey Corderoy. It's from the Parragon Picture Book range, ideal for big monkeys age and ability.
Big brown bear doesn't want to go to bed - he'll miss Autumn....a story about friends who help him experience autumn even though he'll sleep through it. A lovely illustrated story, with colourful pictures perfect for reading now as autumn turns into winter. I read the book to both monkeys, the eldest being more interested as he has been learning about animals hibernating and therefore had some knowledge about the tale. The story really is lovely and I shall enjoy reading it over and over to big monkey and his little brother as he takes more interest. Big monkey liked looking through the book and the type seems easy for him to read. The pictures are beautiful and really help him to tell the story. A bit above his current level of reading but he'll get there.
We are looking forward to seeing which book we will get sent for November, a few more weeks of waiting and big monkey and I can see if it's one he can read and enjoy just like he has done this lovely story.
