Ok, the bookstores are opened and I couldn’t help not going in.
We already know how my little booknerd is obsessed with Julia Donaldson and I wanted to treat her as well, not only myself. I popped in Waterstones and found The Smeds and the Smoos.
I have to say that it’s been over three weeks since and every single night we read it together and try to sing along at the end. It is such a beautiful story about love, equality and friendships.
The Smeds (who are red) never mix with the Smoos (who are blue). So when a young Smed and Smoo fall in love, their families strongly disapprove.
But peace is restored and love conquers all in this happiest of love stories. There’s even a gorgeous purple baby to celebrate! With fabulous rhymes and breathtaking illustrations, this book is literally out of this world!
For this post, I have linked with the incredible Laura Summers for the Kids Love to Read campaign – edition 55 #kltr . Head out to her website and check the other amazing book recommendations for the little readers.
