stories for 7 yr olds

This collection of 25 short stories is written by some of New Zealand’s most loved children’s writers. There is a great selection of stories that are specifically targeted at 7 year olds and are perfect to be read loud or independently. Lulu Bell and an injured penguin, a school play spectacular, holidays at Pop’s farm, scary fairies, a lost goblin princess, a shark for a best friend, a homework disaster, Draggle the bedraggled dragon, two queen dolls, ducks and dogs, a strawberry thief and Clementine Rose’s first day of school are some of the stories you’ll find inside.

The stories are a bit more adventurous than the 6 year olds collection and are about exploring and things – kapa haka, monsters, best friends, snorkelling, and wetas are covered! My tester enjoyed the stories immensely and looked forward to bedtime when she’d get to read one to her little sister! She also really liked the cute illustrations that had both of them in giggles.
