Thanks to the team at Glee Books for this sweet review.
A Stick And A Stone by Sarina Dickson is a simple tale of outdoor adventures perfect for folk exploring their 5km radius in lockdown. With a lovely rhythmic rhyming pattern it is such a fun book to read aloud as we explore the outdoors with a family of campers who are spotting treasures on the way to the campsite. Sore feet, stolen caps and getting lost does not dampen their spirits as there is still much fun to be had! The illustrations by Hilary Jean Tapper are bright and fabulous and reminiscent of Alison Lester and Freya Blackwood. This is such a great book to read with toddlers but also a good one to encourage reading skills. It even inspired us to go outside and do a nature treasure hunt. Something in this gorgeous book for everyone!
