1. Being Kind to George
One morning Oliver, the big black dog, was out
walking with his best friend Greg when he heard some strange noises in
a patch of tall grass. Oliver was frightened when out popped a scrawny
goose covered in seaweed. From then on Greg and Oliver would walk down
to the park and feed the hungry goose, who Greg named George. They went
to visit him every day, and soon other people in the park began to visit
George too. George loved all of the attention, until the park ranger told
Greg that taking care of a wild animal is not always a good thing to do
because George might forget how to take care of himself. Greg knew that
the park ranger was right, so he decided to spend less time with George,
even though it made him sad. George became lonely, until one day he spotted
two boys at the park. He waddled after them honking loudly, but the boys
were frightened and tried to scare George away. George got scared and
started running all over, people were chasing him and someone tried to
grab him. Hurt and frightened George slowly made his way to Greg's café.
Greg called the park ranger and together they found a new home for George,
a place where George could be himself with other geese.

2.The Ugly Duckling
The Ugly Duckling" is a well-known story.
As with all classics, there's a reason why we love to hear and read them
over and over again: there's a lot of truth in them and therefore they
are worth being passed on over many generations.

Bumble, the bee, is shocked: all the flowers have been trampled upon. What's she going to eat now? Stan, the spider, tells Bumble he saw children running all over the grass, right through the early Spring daffodils. Other people have gathered great armfuls of flowers to take them home. Dogs, cars and children on bikes destroyed the remaining flowers. Now, instead of flowers, there is litter everywhere, left by people who enjoy the beauty of nature but don't care for it, don't feel responsible for preserving it. But hey, what's this? Children with baskets full of bulbs and seeds are coming to plant fresh flowers.
A lovely, uplifting story. Jo Dunningham brings her message across in a relaxed and easy-to-relate-to way. A bee and a spider as central characters work perfectly, and the illustrations done by children are absolutely charming.
In my experience, most children love caring for their surroundings once they've become aware of the importance. What is more, they'll then pass on this attitude to their parents, who taught them in the first place. When my daughter was 3 years old I told her it wasn't alright to throw litter on the ground. Ever since then she's been conscientiously paying attention to this rule, and on top of that she scolded every grown-up she ever caught doing so. Therefore, I am happy to recommend this story as an incentive for children to take care of flowers.
The CD for the book contains an audio version of the e-book too where as the child enters each page, the page is read to them. The CD also contains a photo album file of pictures taken at the workshop of the children as they did the illustrations, plus a free colouring book based on one of Jo Dunningham's other books. All profits from this book are donated to the South West Swan Sanctuary, a voluntary group that looks after the birds and small animals locally.
2. Where Have
all the Flowers Gone?
Bumble the Bee woke up one bright spring morning
and she was hungry, but when she looked around she couldn't see any flowers.
She found her friend Stan the spider and asked him where the flowers were.
He looked sadly at her and explained how the children had played in the
flower beds, how people picked them to take home. He told her they had
parked their cars right in the flowers, and they left their trash all
over so the flowers couldnt grow. Bumble and Stan didn't know what
to do, then they saw a group of children coming into the park with their
teacher. They had flowers and seeds and spent all day planting in the
park. Bumble and Stan smiled at each other. They knew what happened to
the flowers, but they also knew that the flowers would be back again.

2. Sounds I Can Hear, In A Car
Though I thought the concept of having a click-on-sound to go with the storyline on each page a good one, I knew that the book needed a real testa toddlers point of view. With that in mind, I sat my just turned three-year-old grandson on my lap and opened up this childrens ebook. As we moved through the book, he got to click on such sounds as the rumble of a car engine, wind blowing through hair, birds flying, a motorcycle, dog barking, children laughing and much more.
The story, about a ride in a car, seems not much more than a vehicle to introduce the sounds, and thats all right. Devon enjoyed clicking on the sounds over and over. His favorites were the motorcycle, the dog barking and the children laughing. At the end, all the sounds are represented on a single page. Devon spent a considerable amount of timefor a three-year-oldmoving from picture to picture clicking and listening to the sounds.
My grandson and I got some quality time together, and had fun learning new sounds. Devon and I recommend this book
