Nelly and Nora - The Windy Way Home by Emma Hogan (Walker Books)

Nelly and Nora are the busy and delightful little stars of their own CBeebies TV show, chronicling the adventures of two little girls with an eye for adventure!

Nelly and Nora are exploring on the beach on a very blustery day (and we rather loved the fact that the beach in this book reminded us of one of our favourite beaches in Pembrokeshire!)

It's actually so windy that both Nelly and Nora struggle to keep their feet. How on earth are they going to get home in time for tea.

The two girls stop to feed some inquisitive sheep, and that's where they get a great idea to stop themselves being literally blown away by the wind.

Watching the sheep follow them through the field, Nelly and Nora realise that if they huddle close and stick together, they'll be able to make their way through the breezy conditions with no problem at all!

It's a delightful and whimsical little story. Charlotte's a bit 'old' for CBeebies but rather enjoyed this one, and I'm sure fans of the show are going to love this story, based on one of the most popular episodes.

Charlotte's favourite bit: Feeding hungry sheep!

Daddy's favourite bit: A charming and whimsical little book, perfect for fans of the CBeebies show.
