One of the best books EVER for sharing!,
This review is from: Billy's Bucket (Paperback)
I bought this book on a whim and can honestly say it's one the very best children's books in my collection. It has become a clear favourite at story time for my Year 1 class. The story is magical, Billy wants a bucket for his birthday (much to his parents' consternation!) but not just ANY bucket....he spots THE one at Buckets-R-Us and when he fills it with water we are transported into what we assume is his imagination, as he discovers a wealth of sea creatures and even a mermaid (although it could just be a large haddock!). His parents think he's pulling their leg about what's in his bucket...but it's Billy who has the last laugh.
This is simply wonderful to share aloud, a really great fun read with lovely bold illustrations to explore. It also lends itself to literacy activites if you chose to develop it.
I am amazed that not more people have discovered this little gem! You won't be disappointed!
