Book of the Month: March

WOW, we are in March already. The year is going very quickly and we are currently enjoying a little spring like sun, to give us a burst of freshness. Spring is on the horizon, with images of flowers, Easter eggs, bunnies and lambs popping into our heads.For our March Book of the Month we meet a little lamb with a big struggle on this hands.

When a hungry young wolf spots a tasty looking animal in the field above the river, he thinks he has found some dinner…. but the fluffy little lamb is more clever than he bargained for. Will the lamb become a tasty snack, or will she escape the hungry wolf's jaws ? The Hungry Wolf is our Book of the Month for March and what a fun read it is! With plots to make you chuckle and illustrations that jump of the page, this a great read aloud for older children or for children aged 6+ to read independently.

The book has some really good discussion points, around our food consumption, nature, family and overcoming obstacles, so is ideal for book clubs or for parents to encourage children to explore meaning behind books. The vocabulary in the book is varied but not too challenging for children who are starting to read on their own and the speech bubbles add an extra dimension to allow us to really get to know the characters. An engaging and vibrant tale, that I am sure adults will love too.
