Forget the sunnies, break out the reading glasses because we have some brand new books for your little ones this summer. From dinosaurs to zebras to squidleggers (!) our top three picture book picks for summer are charming, beautifully illustrated, and filled with fantastic and creative characters. Whether it’s rain or (fingers crossed!) shine, everyone can be kept entertained this summer with these exciting reads:
Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs retold by Mo Willems
“Once upon a time, there were three hungry Dinosaurs” – wait, dinosaurs? Yes, that’s right. From the author of Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, Mo Willems retells a classic fairytale with his characteristic dark and witty humour in a riotous and hugely entertaining tale. 

The Zebra who Ran Too Fast by Jenni Desmond
Zebra, Elephant and Bird are three best friends together.  Then one day they all fall out because Zebra runs too fast. Only then do they really discover the true meaning of friendship. From the winner of the Cambridgeshire ‘Read it Again’ Picture Book award 2013, this is a delightful story about the ups and downs of friendship.
