  • I am a huge fan of Julia Donaldson who is best known for The Gruffalo. All of the books by Julia Donaldson are brilliant for reading to small children as they are generally all written in rhyme and written very well. Due to the success of The Gruffalo a lot of people have jumped on the rhyming bandwagon but no-one does it quite like Julia. This is good for us Dad’s as it is really easy to read in a fun and rhythmic manner which draws the child into the story. Stick Man is about a family of stick people and focuses on the Stick Dad who ends up going on a long adventure away from the family tree due to all sorts of mishaps and all he wants to do is get back to his family. It’s such a lovely theme as we all ultimately want to spend as much time with our family as we can and it will likely make even the most manly man go “aaah”.Among other things Stick Man ends up being thrown across a park for a dog and used by children as a Pooh Stick, I won’t spoil it by telling you any more, suffice to say read it as its superbly written and superbly illustrated. If your kids love the Gruffalo they will love Stick Man and so will you.

  • A man made from a stick decides to go for a run and has many things happen to him and isn't sure he will ever get home. His family is worried and don't think he will ever return. On Christmas a miracle happens. This book is a good, fun read for any student and the rhyme scheme in the book makes is good for beginning readers.
