About the Books:
Picture book:In the Quiet NOISY Woods by Michael J. Rosen & illustrated by Annie Won: "Run alongside two playful wolf pups as they search for their pack, all the while discovering the sights and sounds of their forest home." This book is full of beautiful illustrations and is perfect for ages 3-6.
Chapter book: The Wolves of Willoughby Chase by Joan Aiken: "Wicked Wolves without and a grim governess within threaten Bonnie and her cousin Sylvia when Bonnie's parents leave Willoughby Chase for a sea voyage. Left in the care of the cruel Miss Slighcarp, the girls can hardly believe what is happening to their lovely, once happy home. The servants are dismissed, the furniture is sold, and, dressed in rags, Bonnie and Sylvia are sent to a prisonlike school for orphans. It seems as if the endless hours of drudgery will never cease.
With the help of Simon the gooseboy and his flock, they escape. But where will they go? And how will they ever free Willoughby Chase from the clutches of the evil Miss Slighcarp?"
I first read The Wolves of Willoughby Chase as a child, then read it aloud to my younger sister, and many years later to my own children. I've personally read this book at least 10 times to myself and to others! If you haven't read The Wolves of Willoughby Chase yet, treat yourself and your kids to this really fun read-aloud. Perfect for kids as young as 4 or 5 and for strong readers up to 12 or so.
Please by aware that Plush Animals are not recommended for children under 3 years old, due to small parts (eyes).
My son loves wolves so when I heard Book and Bear had a wolf and matching book we had to get it.
The contents were beautifully wrapped. The books are wonderful! He was so excited to sit and read while holding his new friend.
