Great christmas read


Have you started to think about Christmas yet? If you're anything like the little joeys in this story you'll be thinking about all the different things that need to be done in time for Christmas day. The busy little joeys in this story are not the quiet kind, they are full of energy and eager to decorate the house and Christmas tree – all in time for Christmas day! Written with rhyme and repetition, young children will love reading this story and watching the little joey and his family have fun together bringing about Christmas cheer! Doris Chang's illustrations are cleverly drawn, showing the reader the key part of the joey's actions. The colours she has used reflect summer in Australia – the parched greens, brown earth and the wildlife that abounds in backyards! Bouncing bouncing little joeys: A bush Christmas is a fun way to inspire some homemade family fun and because of the rhyme and repetition, children can be involved in the storytelling.
