We love A Squash and a Squeeze, by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, so we were really pleased to be sent a Let’s Read version to review.
I’ve written here, here and here about how much we love the Let’s Read books, so I won’t repeat myself again, but I will just say again that as a teacher, parent and home educator I can’t recommend them highly enough.
A Squash and a Squeeze is the story of a little old lady who is unhappy because her house is too small. A wise old man tells her to take in all her farm animals one by one. Then he tells her to take them out again, and she finds that “There’s no need to grumble and there’s no need to grouse. There’s plenty of room in my house.”
The story is brilliant for reading aloud, and seems to be just as appealing to nine year olds as to three year olds – in this house anyway.
Thank you Macmillan, we love this book!
We were sent the book free of charge for the purpose of this review.
