Picture Book Review – Mine! – Rachel Bright (Author & Illustrator)

Picture Book Review – Mine! – Rachel Bright (Author & Illustrator)

Recommended for: Toddlers/Younger Readers


Now here’s a story about sharing that should make you giggle.

Twins Fifi and Frankie are not very alike – Fifi likes ponies, princesses and pink; Frankie likes bears, bicycles and blue. What they both love however, is their rabbit toy Funny Bunny. They’d better learn to share him, otherwise disaster might happen…

I found this on a training day, given it to read and then try to recommend to someone – luckily, it wasn’t hard, as it’s a fun little tale about why children need to learn to share. The words are fun, but the real assets are the illustrations – everything is large, bright and very eye-catching, and the way that the text appears on the screen, almost flowing around the page, makes it great fun to actually read. Children will laugh at how naughty the twins are, and parents should be pleased with the way they learn to share at the end!

Well worth checking out next time you’re in the library!
