This month we sent our Parakeet subscribers the brilliant Noodle the Doodle by Jonathan Meres, a charming and super fun story inspired by his very own Labradoodle pup, Pablo! So for this month's exclusive interview, who else would want to meet than Pablo himself? Here he tells us all about life as a literary Labradoodle.
We are asked all the time for book recommendations for kids who love sport. If your youngsters, like mine, are missing their usual sports clubs, teams and activities during lockdown, why not try quenching their sporty thirst with some of these fiction books for sport-loving kids?
One of the things we love about reading with kids is the wider world it opens up for them and the book we sent our Parakeet subscribers last month is the perfect example. Too Small Tola is set in bustling Lagos, Nigeria, and stars Tola, a young girl who lives with her brother, sister and grandmother. Here we share 6 more books set in Africa which you might like to look out for.
