Why not try a new book this Summer from Wargrave Library?
Bronze and Sunflower by Cao Wenxuam
“When Sunflower, a young city girl, moves to the countryside, she grows to love the reed marsh lands – the endlessly flowing river, the friendly buffalo with their strong backs and shiny round heads, the sky that stretches on and on in its vastness. However, the days are long, and the little girl is lonely. Then she meets Bronze, who, unable to speak, is ostracised by the other village boys. Soon the pair are inseparable, and when Bronze‘s family agree to take Sunflower in, it seems that fate has brought him the sister he has always longed for. But life in Damaidi is hard, and Bronze‘s family can barely afford to feed themselves. Will the city girl be able to stay in this place where she has finally found happiness?”
My Hamster is a Genius by Dave Lowe
“Meet nine-year-old Benjamin Jinks and his grumpy hamster, Jasper Stinkybottom. Benjamin is a very normal boy who hates maths. Stinky is a genius hamster, who likes carrots. Together they are an unstoppable team! But can they overcome the evil scheming of Ben’s maths teacher, Beardy McCreedy?”
Once Upon a Star by James Carter
“Once upon a star there were no stars to shine, no Sun to rise, no Sun to set, no day, no night nor any time. Discover the origins of the universe and how our solar system was formed. The narrative verse takes the reader on an immersive journey through space and time, illuminated by striking, dynamic illustrations. The worlds of poetry and non-fiction collide to create a beautiful, unique picture book about our Sun.”
