The perfect story for that young child who is not quite convinced that having a baby brother or sister is a good idea. Reading this will change their mind immediately and provide a great deal of fun along the way as well. Green Bananas make reading fun.


Hoppy Birthday, Jo-jo! by Pippa Goodhart

Jo-Jo is not a happy little kangaroo. Her mum's just come home with a new baby. Now she's going to have to share her room, and worst of all, her mum and dad! But then it's her birthday, and her special party is full of surprises. Soon, Jo-Jo realises that it's fun to be an older sister! A delightful story about growing up and sharing.
