Badger and the Great Storm - Book Review and Giveaway

Little Tiger Press sent us a book titled Badger and the Great Storm by Suzanne Chiew and Caroline Pedler to kick-start our reading habit in the New Year.


Badger and the Great Storm

J and I love a good story. We love it even more if colourful pictures accompany that story. Badger and the Great Storm is a book that fulfils these exacting criteria. The story is all about kindness and selflessness. It is about helping friends in need even in the face of a raging storm. It is about bravery and courage, and about new beginnings.

The story is brought to life by beautiful full-page illustrations that span the book from cover to cover. The characters are cute, the colours are vibrant and the pictures are wonderfully detailed. I think this is very important when the aim is to capture the imagination of a 3 year old and instil a love of reading.

For when we read a book, my son hears me say the words, but his eyes are scanning the pictures, sparking a million questions that may or may not have anything to do with the narrative. “What is badger doing? What happened to the tree? Where are they going now?” to quote but a few.

Badger and the Great Storm

We have read Badger and the Great Storm a few times since receiving the book, and I can envision multiple more narrations with many more, as yet unanswered questions springing up with each new telling. The paper quality of the book is excellent, as is the binding, and I can rest assured that Badger will survive many more exciting readings.

Little Tiger Press is happy to give one of my readers a copy of Badger and the Great Storm. So if you know a little boy or girl who would enjoy this Badger's story, all you have to do is enter via the Rafflecopter below for a chance to win. Good luck!
