Storytime: In a Minute, Mum by A. H. Benjamin


Storytime: In a Minute, Mum by A. H. Benjamin

Rory is always putting things off and always running late. It's driving his family mad! What will it take to make him change his ways? Each time he is asked to do something for someone, Rory's response is In a minute... . But what Rory doesn't realise is that he is taking far longer than a minute to get round to doing the task. When the tables are turned though, will Rory finally realise the error of his ways? This heart-warming and humorous tale will have every child pausing for thought when they distractedly respond, In a minute, Mum...


'A humorous story which is great for sharing, especially with children who may suffer from the same problem. Nicely told.'

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.
