We bring to you our final review for 2018, and what better way to end it than with Sarah Morrell’s The King and the Cockerel.
The shivering sheep have lost their woolly coats and the chilly chickens are without their feathers! The greedy king believes he can take whatever he wants, but the farmer thinks it’s about time he was taught a lesson – and it comes from a very unlikely source….
The King and The Cockerel is aimed at young readers aged 6 and under. It incorporates wonderful humour and counting practice with an important message of fairness and appreciation. This delightful rhyming picture book will have children laughing and counting along as the ungrateful king is made to see the error of his ways.
If you make it through this book without getting tongue twisted at least once, I take my hat off to you!!
My toddler and I had so much fun working our way through this book, her laughing at me for getting the words wrong and laughing at myself at tripping over the same words!
This is a lovely book with a great message, even my 3 year old said he was a naughty King for taking all the farmers animals.
We loved the illustrations, bright, bold and playful….. though the Cockerel was a chicken for some time with the little one!
This is definitely a must have for every child’s reading corner 😀
