Bunnies on the Bus by Philip Ardagh and Ben Mantle

Bunnies on the bus, bunnies in the aisles, bunnies on the roof! A madcap adventure through Sunnytown with a bunny-filled bus speeding through the streets to the horror of passers-by. There’s lots of easy repetition for children to join in with and many fun things to spot and talk about.

Mavis the Bravest by Lu Fraser and Sarah Warburton

Mavis is a bit of a chicken in every sense of the word. She’s scared of nighttime, daytime and everything in between. The only thing that keeps her calm is the constant click clack of her knitting needles. But when, one night, her woolly pal Sandra is kidnapped, can Mavis find a spark of bravery inside herself to fight off the thief and save Sandra?

I Did See a Mammoth by Alex Willmore

The Antarctic is such an exciting place full of penguins, penguins and. . . more penguins. Who wants to study penguins when you can spot a mammoth instead? A dancing, swimming and skateboarding woolly mammoth! Will anyone believe the young explorer that mammoths exist? A brilliant read-aloud picture book that will have everyone joining in.
