Each the Same by Michelle Worthington illustrated by Anne-Marie Finn reviewed by Jill Smith copyright October 2014
This is a delightfully illustrated book with the theme for children to learn. They are each very different, but special. The farmer loves each of them the same. I bought this book for my granddaughters to enjoy. The kids squelching in the mud makes them giggle.

They all have their jobs to do to help make the farm a happy place to live. Someone’s squelching in the mud and it’s not the pigs. Who can it be?

Funky Chicken: A Bushy Tale of Crocs and Chooks book review by Jill Smith copyright June 2015
I loved this book and look forward to reading it to my granddaughters.
The CD accompanying it is also an opportunity to share the story with the girls in the car.
I loved the quirky animal illustrations and the large bold writing. My oldest Grand daughter is learning to read, this will be fun to share with her to spark her love of reading.
The animals arguing about who should be most unique, in ferocious debate, came down to a final eight.
The Aussie animals decision does not include sly old croc, he has ideas of his own.
This is a beautiful book to hold and share. For parents, grandparents and anyone wanting to share Aussie fun, this is one to give a good run!
