Newts, Lutes and Bandicoots

IP Kids     


I am a huge fan of poetry and riddle books for kids.  I think they help entice reluctant readers with short verses and funny antics; they are great to share and as a parent or teacher there is nothing better than seeing a child giggling behind a book.



Newts, Lutes and Bandicoots is full of fun.  Each page (or double page) has a witty rhyme and a riddle to solve.  The illustrations are fun with oodles of different “goings on” to find on the busy pages.  At the back of the book there is a list of things to find on each page also, so really this is a good value book chock full of activities. 

Keep the kids entertained with Newts, Lutes and Bandicoots, challenge them with a tongue twister out loud or to find things the quickest. More fun then you can throw a marmoset at.
