A lovely story with actually a great meaning with friends supporting each other.
A lovely story with actually a great meaning with friends supporting each other. I can see this being a great story for young children whilst showing the importance and value of friends.
My Scooter Got Stuck is a delightful children's picture book for three to eight year olds.
My Scooter Got Stuck is a delightful children's picture book for three to eight year olds written by Arba Spak. It's illustrated by the Different Folks Co. and follows the well-loved traditional format of 'The Little Red Hen' and many other stories, in which little Ariel asks various people to help him pull his scooter out of the mud. Dog, horse, lion, panda and giraffe are all too busy but at last friends Noel and Sam arrive on their scooters and help get Ariel back on the move. Adults will love reading this rhyming story aloud to younger children, as it provides so much to talk about. The pictures are colourful and encourage the naming and describing of animals and people. With older children it could spark discussion about London landmarks, what it means to be a friend and even gender issues. This is definitely one to put on the Christmas stocking list.
A bright and colourful story which is ideal for very young children.
A bright and colourful story which is ideal for very young children. The story action will encourage children to recognise the same words repeated on each page. It's a very simple tale of being a helpful friend when you're in difficulties. I found the illustrations a bit confusing, I thought Ariel was a girl when I saw the first picture, so not sure if this is a non- gender theme. Likewise for the other two characters. A nice, if unremarkable book to share at bedtime, providing opportunity for discussion with the child.
