Review: What Will You Be? by Simon French and Donna Rawlins

What Will You Be?

by Simon French and Donna Rawlins

There’s going to be a costume parade and the whole class is excited. Everyone is making plans, but Sacha still doesn’t know what he’s going to wear. ‘I’m coming as something different,’ he says.

A delightful book by an award winning team about dressing up, being different and surprising yourself.

This is another wonderful children’s book, perfect for reading to any child from birth right through to older children who are able to read it for themselves. If you are looking for a book to encourage a child to talk then there is a lot in the book for them to be interactive with. The illustrations are bright, colourful and detailed, and will appeal to all age levels.

There is also lots of meaning in the story that you can explore with older children – such as how Mum can be busy, but doesn’t mean to ignore you, how it can be exciting to do something different from everyone else, and that it is OK to do so.

Favourite Quote: The costume party was fun and colourful, crowded and noisy. There were butterflies and dinosaurs, Cinderellas and superheroes, boy wizards and a growly grizzly bear.
