The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson is our new favorite this summer and thanks to a dear friend for this lovely gift.
The book is a ride full of thrills as it is about a mouse who outsmarts his predators like the owl, fox and the gruffalo..
It did make me worry that my girl would be scared looking at the monstrous gruffalo but turns out he is more funny than scary.. the illustrations took care of that I guess.. My almost 4 year old loves pulling out the book simply to go on a ride in the forest and is super thrilled each time the mouse escapes being a meal to an animal..
I’d certainly recommend this book to teach clever thinking and bravery. It also serves in making kids understand that a small mouse can outsmart a big animal with his tiny brains!
This is definitely going to stay on our book shelf.
