The Lovereading4Kids comment
Frisk the fox cub loves exploring day and night even though his mum says exploring should be done only at night. When he decides to follow Jenny to school one day, all sorts of exciting things happen…Like the Blue and Green Bananas these continue to be perfect for sharing between parent and child and as the child grows in confidence is able to read and re-read alone. The Quick Brown Fox Cub by Julia Donaldson is part of the Banana Books reading series – quality stories for young readers – which in turn is divided into Green, Blue and Red Bananas. Green Bananas, are for first readers, generally from 3-5 years, Blue Bananas, are for developing readers (age 5+) and Red Bananas, like this one are for newly fluent readers (age 6+) designed to build confidence with one story broken into chapters and slightly more complex characters for kids to identify with. Every one of them is written and illustrated by well established authors and artists.
