The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is our personal favourite in terms of Sally Grindley’s picture books here at Lovereading4kids. It tells the story of rabbit and donkey. Rabbit is very inquisitive and is always asking questions about everything! He wants to know why the sky is blue and his old friend, Donkey, knows a lot of things, and promises to teach him but doesn’t always quite get round to it. In fact, in the end their roles are reversed in this wonderfully uplifting tale of friendship.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
