Lulu loves choosing books at the library and listening to stories told by her mum and dad. Each new story sparks her imaginative play the following day, and we are taken through a week of this from the first story on Saturday to the last one on a Friday night (learning the days of the week along the way).
Lulu and her mum read a story about an amazing journey on Sunday, so Monday sees Lulu playing at being a pilot and making trips to faraway places. The illustrative style is appealingly simple with the main characters depicted large scale in full colour double page spreads. Background detail is kept minimal so that it’s the key textual content that’s supported. Text and pictures work well for the age group aimed at with the text in a bold clear font. The size of the book also makes it easy to share with really young children. A multilingual CD (clearly labelled and well produced) is included inside the back cover. The story is read in 20 languages and each reading begins with the narrator giving their name, country and the language in which they are going to tell the story.
