Synopsis

Joe Lion's Big Boots by Kara May

Joe Lion is fed up with being the smallest: he wants to be bigger! Working out in Gus Gorilla's gym isn't the answer, though: what he needs are bigger, taller boots! But big boots are no fun. They trip Joe up at football, and mean he is big enough to help with the chores at home. But when neighbour Geoff Giraffe locks himself out of his house super small, bootless Joe Lion might be the only person who can save him. The I Am Reading series provides just the right balance of challenge and support for newly independent readers. Large, easy-to-read type, satisfying stories by top writers and cheerful full-colour pictures help children make the transition from picture books to chapter books. Each book includes a bookmark flap, tips for beginner readers and either short, numbered chapters or two short stories.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

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!

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
