3-minute Animal Stories : A Special Collection of Short Stories for Bedtime
This is a very special selection of children's stories, specially devised to be read aloud in around 3 minutes, so you can plan your storytime around a bedtime routine. It introduces children to a wonderful cast of animal characters, from a mammoth to a snail, and from a busy bee to ten little frogs. Each story is magically illustrated with specially commissioned artworks that children and adults alike will find a delight to share. What happens when a very clever rabbit meets a very cunning cabbage-grower? How could a spider ever be friends with a mammoth? Can a huge pink dinosaur ever be good at playing hide-and-seek? You can find out in this collection of wild and wonderful animal stories specially written by Nicola Baxter. The original stories include "The Clumsy Chameleon", "A House for a Mouse", "Mr Noah's Problem", "A Roaring Success", "No Place like Home" and "Come and Find Me"! Children will love Andy Everitt-Stewart's warm and funny illustrations, which add to the fun on every page, and there are some puzzles to solve as well!
