This beautifully crafted piece of writing by Rachel Weston, lovingly adorned with vibrant and colourful illustrations by Deborah Hinde.
It puts a smile on my face and warms my heart to read about this Nana and her three precious grandchildren reading, Bumblebee. Story time with the grandies and learning about buzzy bumblebees in the garden, what could be better?
I wrote Bumblebee for younger children to show them the incredible connection between bees, flowers and the food we eat.
It’s amazing to think 1 in every 3 bites of food we eat come from pollinated plants! Bumblebees are SUPER pollinators that help our fruits and vegetables grow.
Bella does a WONDERFUL job of reviewing Boo Goes Tutti Frutti. She loves Boo and all his mischievousness!
Fruit-loving dog a lively kids’ tale. “Do you think reading will help children through this strange time of Covid?”
The rhythm, rhyme and repetition in Boo Goes Tutti Frutti reads similarly to Lynley Dodd’s Hairy Maclary series.
If we want our children to become life-long readers, ensuring reading is a time of fun and joy is crucial. Boo Goes Tutti Frutti ticks all those boxes.
As a mother, grandmother and teacher for 40 years I pride myself in instinctively knowing when a book has the potential to be a long-lasting classic.
This is a brilliant book for whanau and kaiako to use to support children as they transition in to, or between, early childhood education services.
