Interest Age 5-8 | Longlisted for the UKLA Book Awards 2020

What a lovely first reading book! Something exciting is happening at school – there’s a paddling pool in the playground, the children are in their swimming costumes – and so are the teachers… It’s Splash Day, a giant water fight the summer reward for everyone’s hard work. What a treat – and it’s a treat to read too. Nick Sharratt’s bright, bold illustrations provide clues so that working out what the words say becomes a kind of game, fun rhymes making it easier still to decode the letters.  Splish, splash, splosh – get yourself a copy.
