Book Review: The Giant Jumperee by Julia Donaldson
The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom are the staple of every parents bookcase for younger children, and in my case for the book basket for work. I love how easy it is to read these books, and how quickly the children pick up on the repetitiveness of it, so when I saw The Giant Jumperee on NetGalley I knew I had to read it.
The story itself follows a rabbit who is scared of this mysterious Giant Jumperee, and when he seeks help from his fellow animals they too are scared. But it takes one brave animal to pull the Giant Jumperee out of hiding.
I love the illustrations in the pages of this book and The Giant Jumperee itself was a very quick read, but like other books by Julia, its easy to follow with repetitive words that will make this a hit for children.
The Giant Jumperee was a lovely read, and one I can't wait to add to the collection.
