Book Week Day 4 {great australian picture books part 2 }

Here we go again. Instalment two.

In no particular order.

1. Too Many Pears by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley

Pamela liked pears. Pamela liked fresh pears. She liked pears even more than Amy did! 

How to cure a cow who loves pears too much!

2. Koala Lou by Mem Fox

There was once a baby koala so soft and round that all who saw her loved her.  Her name was Koala Lou. 

Koala Lou dearly wants her mum to notice her. Maybe trying out for the Bush Olympics will do the trick?

3. Sebastian Lives in a hat by Thelma Catterwall and Kerry Argent

Sebastian lives in a hat. It’s a brown woollen hat. Sebastian’s a pink fuzzy wombat.  

A delightful story about an orphaned wombat baby that doesn’t stay a cute little baby for ever!

4. Amy and Louis by Libby Gleeson and Freya Blackwood

Amy and Louis built towers as high as the sky. They dug holes deep enough to bury bears and they saw magical creatures in clouds.

Amy and Louis are friends and they share everything together.  Until Amy moves away.

5. Wilfred Gordon MacDonald Partridge by Mem Fox

There once was a small boy called Wilfred Gordon MacDonald Partridge and what’s more he wasn’t very old either.  His house was next door to an old people’s home and he knew all the old people who lived there. 

A story about memories and how they are important.
