Synopsis

Amelie and the Great Outdoors by Fiona Barker

Amelie is a little girl who never goes outside. She's happy to stay indoors and play on her own, and is even a little intimidated by the thought of the GREAT OUTDOORS. Her parents have just about given up on trying to convince Amelie to go outside. Not even the thought of trips to the park, the beach, or enjoying ice cream in the sunshine, is enough to make her want to leave her house. But to everyone's surprise, all that changes when she meets a special friend who helps her realise that it really is the GREAT outdoors after all! Amelie and the Great Outdoors is a heart-warming picture book for young readers with an important message about friendship, fresh air and exercise. It will appeal to readers (and listeners!) aged 0-5.
