One Thing (A Charlie and Lola Book) by Lauren Child (Orchard Books)
We love Lauren Child's books (and we really loved seeing some of her work 'in real life' at a recent exhibition at a National Trust place). She effortlessly mixes the most glorious mixed-media pieces together to create fun and engaging stories.
Of course, Charlie and Lola are now megastars thanks to the awesome CBeebies show but don't forget there's a brilliant range of children's books to enjoy featuring this dynamic duo too.
In "One Thing", Charlie and Lola are on an amazing numerical journey as they venture out for the day, finding numbers, numbers all around!
We love the book's playfulness and sense of fun...
|Two divided by two? Don't get the pip, it's easy once you know how...|
|SIZZLES! He's our fave!|
|A subtle nod to Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds" ? No, it's a nifty way of describing number shapes!|
