I’ve collected together my very favourite summer reads into this blog. Some have been recommended by my Instagram followers (thank you Instafam)
1. Supertato Veggies in the Valley of Doom by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet
Supertato adventures are hilarious, they have definitely become a firm favourite for me and my children! The veggies are bored, so Broccoli suggests a game of hide-and-seek. It’s a great game but then Carrot happens to finds treasure map in a cereal packet and the adventure unravels!
2. The Girls by Lauren Ace and Jennie Lovelie
This is an uplifting representation of female friendship. It is about four girls and their friendship as they grow from little children into adults. We get to learn so much about our four main characters: Lottie, Sasha, Leela and Alice. We follow the ups and downs of their lives. The book has such a positive message about the support friends provide.
3. What the Ladybird heard on holiday by Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks
Lanky Len and Hefty Hugh are planning another crime. This time they are after the Queen’s crown! The Ladybird, who happens to be on holiday in the same place, can she stop them in time?
4. Happy Hatchday by Rob Biddulph
Nine dinosaur eggs are ready to hatch. Each named Otto, Winnie, Hector, Sue, Nancy, Martin, Wilf and Boo. And Greg, he hatches a week late, and by then the other little dinosaurs are already have friends and Greg feels left out. However, there is a little surprise…
5.Gary’s banana drama by Jane Massey
Gary loves bananas, he loves them so much that on the day that something bad happens, and there are no bananas to be found, he starts seeing them everywhere! You could even say he was going bananas for a banana! Will Gary find bananas? How will this story end? With lots of twists and turns!
