Yesterday we featured our librarian’s Book of the Week choice for Years 5 and up. Today, her suggestion is for younger children aged from three to six and is “a beautifully-illustrated, funny, quirky rhyming tale which has been shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal 2017“.
Tidy by Emily Gravett is about a badger called Pete who likes everything neat and tidy. He likes his forest tidy, but the autumn leaves take some serious tidying. So much so he wants to be rid of the messy trees…..
The moral of the story, is how over-development (tidying) has devastating effects on wildlife and the environment.
