‘The Birthday Surprise’ by Milo Ferreira is one of the books that is part of the ’10 for £10’ sale. It’s a sweet story about farmyard animals and is suitable for kids up to seven. It’s Donkey’s birthday but nobody has wished him a happy birthday or given him a birthday gift. What he doesn’t know is that his friends have planned a surprise birthday party for him, but will anyone let the secret out before the farmer arrives with a big birthday cake?
The principal of one of the most respected primary schools once told me that the best way to get my daughter ready for school was to enforce a routine and read to her, read to her, read to her. From the age of one I’ve read to her every night and initially she just loves the colours in the pictures but soon she was following the story and mimicking the words I said. Now that she’s seven, bedtime is not complete without a snuggle and a story.
