20 Picture books that can spark the imagination!



There's no such thing as a Gruffalo!

Here is a list of our favourites, many of which have been well road tested by my son! A great go to list if you want to buy a gift or change up your reading material.
    These stories come in handy when devising a thematic drama lesson, containing lots of potential to cover key drama learning areas. I look forward to choosing a story and sharing a lesson plan down the track!
