A list of book recommendations by Miss. Jacquie:


The simple illustrations and bright colours make this perfect for young readers aged 1 – 3. Dinosaurs is a vibrant, tactile book which allows readers to feel the textures as they read. Dinosaurs speaks about different traits of the dinosaurs and teaches children new vocabulary like “ENORMOUS” and tiny”.

I give this book 5 out of 5 for its simple yet captivating story. Tactile, bright book for baby readers

Truck Town

I recommend this book for readers aged 3-6 as it is a simple but fun story. Truck Town is a story about 2 trucks on their way to Pete’s Party. They follow the road signs on their way to the party and find themselves taking a silly path. The vibrant colours and emotions are portrayed very well in this book. This book is perfect for a speak and story class, as there are minimal words on each page but the illustrations tell an exciting story. Silly, simple and vibrant.

I give it 5 out of 5 stars.

The Little Mermaid

I recommend this story for readers aged 5-10. The little mermaid is a classic story about a mermaid, Ariel, who wants to be human. The evil witch turns her into a human and takes away her voice. She must kiss the prince to get her voice back. This story is romantic and exciting. Ariel must overcome many obstacles to get her voice back. It’s simple dialogue also makes this story perfect for Phonics Level 2 readers.

A magical page-turner! I give it 4 out of 5.
