Book of the Week

Leave a comment

This week’s book of the week is Once Upon an Alphabet by Oliver Jeffers.

This book is an imaginative spin on the traditional ABC book, bringing the alphabet to life. It is a large format book, with twenty six short stories. It introduces many new characters – from dynamic duo Owl and Octopus, to Edmund the astronaut with his awkward fear of heights. The illustrations are wonderful and unique, but it’s a long read for a pre-schooler with some challenging vocabulary but the stories are very entertaining and funny.

Suitable read for age five years and over.
