Lovely First Chapter Book
While at a craft fair I came across an Usborne book stall and bought this book. I felt it would be a great book for my 5 year old son who has just started reading and has been asking for chapter books. The chapters are short enough to hold his attention and unlike a lot of chapter books this one has colourful pictures making it a lovely introduction to chapter books from the picture story books that he is used to.
