Two fabulous kids books for Easter
Don’t be shoving chocolate down your kids throats this Easter, give them a fabulous books instead.
Check out Joshua and the Two Crabs by Joshua Button (Magabala Books) Born in Broome in 1988, Joshua Button is a young man with a keen interest in the saltwater country he has grown up in. In his first book, Joshua and the Two Crabs, his observations of his family’s fishing trip to Crab Creek give us a unique opportunity to see this adventure through his eyes. His illustrations are insightful and evocative, and kids will love them.
And while you’re at hit, get hold of Loongie the Greedy Crocodile written by Lucy and Kiefer Dann Illustrated by Browyn Houston (also Magabala). Loongie is a greedy saltwater crocodile who lives among the mangroves at Walaman Creek in the remote Kimberley region of Western Australia. He has no friends and no-one will come near the creek while he’s around. Loongie soon learns why being greedy has its consequences.
