My first recommended read is Oi Frog. Cat is busy telling the frog off, saying that the frog should sit on a log. Frog, however, refuses to sit on the log. This is a funny rhyming story that makes me laugh every time I read it. I wonder if the frog should just listen to the cat and sit on the log?
A classic story about a group of robbers who plan a great toy robbery on Christmas Eve. Luckily, a brave policeman saves the day by capturing all of the robbers, all except for Grandma Swagg who manages to get away.
A funny story about a normal man who heads off to work every day. However, this is no ordinary job. Bob works on the moon; his job is to keep the moon clean and tidy and entertain any tourists who are passing by in space. Bob is absolutely certain that there is no such thing as aliens in space. I am not so sure he is right about that though!
Stuck inside on a rainy day, a little girl asks her Grandad to help her to paint a rainbow in the sky. Being a wise man, her Grandad tells her that rainbows are not painted on the sky, but are grown out of love, kindness, hope and helping others. A heart-warming story, showing us all how to find colour and hope on even the darkest days.
My fifth recommended read is a lovely story of a girl called Emily who believes that she has spotted a whale in her garden pond. She writes letters to Greenpeace in order to find out what she needs to do to care for the whale. Greenpeace returns her letters with words of support and advice. Is it her imagination or do you really think there was a whale in her pond?
