Mrs Wobble the Waitress [Happy Families Series]

This series of stories is simple enough for little ones to 'get' as they revolve around families - something which is often at the centre of their own games - and quirky enough to surprise and delight. Even as an adult reader you are amused .. and stay that way on repeated reading. The pictures are good too, there's plenty to comment on and be interested by for little minds.

As the books are simply written they are also near-accessible to new readers, my five-year-old can sound out most of the speech bubbles or signage in the pictures to me, which gives her the sense of being a reader herself. I can see her reading them to herself at some point in Year One.

I rember reading this to my own six yearold boys, now their children laugh in just the same way. It has the added adventage that I do not have to learn a new book. The illustrations are supportive of the text, a great help for new readers, each picture is an art work in itself and sets a high standard for children to aspire to when they are making their own books.Any child that has ever had a wobble and spilled something when carrying it to the table will totally empathise with Mrs.Wobble!

As a former teacher, I am so happy these are still in print to share with my grandchildren. Well packaged

Myself and my three year old have just purchased Mrs Wobble and read it for the first time this evening. We love it! Along with great illustrations, the book is filled with the sort of gentle humour that I have grown to expect from the Ahlbergs (we have a mounting collection of their books - difficult to pick out a favourite; they are mostly all bonkers, but Burglar Bill might just have it). As a result, have just ordered a few more from this series.

Five year old and two year old were in hoots when I read them this story. Remember it from my time as an infant teacher,so has been around a while but like all the best children's stories it has survived the test of time.
