On the road to better reading
All aboard with a book is this month’s message from The Advertiser Little Big Book Club. The theme of the titles from newborns to five-year olds is transport of all kinds. There’s Beep! Beep! Peekaboo! (DK Books, 0-2 years), Who Sank the Boat? (Pamela Allen, Puffin, 2-3 years) and three books from the Minton Goes! series (Anna Fienberg and Kim Gamble, Allen & Unwin, 4-5 years). The books include plenty of extra activities that encourage children to use their imagination, said Little Big Book Club early childhood project manager Leanne Williams. She urged parents to take the books with them wherever they went. Sharon Booth said she and her son William, who is four, loved the Minton Goes! series. ‘‘They’re lovely books with lovely characters,’’ Ms Booth said. ‘‘Using animals as characters is always a winner for kids, and I love the additional activities.’’ Ms Booth agreed it was important to show children that books could be read anywhere.
