This term the Preps have been enjoying listening to books by a talented Australian author and illustrator Nick Bland. So far we have read The Wrong Book and The Runaway Hug. Last Wednesday we participated in the National Simultaneous Storytime by reading The Very Cranky Bear.
We loved reading about when four friends – Moose, Lion and Zebra and Sheep meet a very cranky bear. Each of the animals think they know how to cheer up the cranky bear, but it is Sheep who has the answer….
In the Jingle Jangle Jungle on a cold and rainy day,
four little friends found a perfect place to play.
Moose had marvellous antlers and Lion, a golden mane.
Zebra had fantastic stripes and Sheep . . . well, Sheep was plain.
