A Christmas Present for Roo

If earlier this year you and your child enjoyed ‘The Great Aussie Easter Egg-And-Spoon Race’ by author Sophie Sayle, this is the book for you both. Once again she has created the perfect picture book to put in a 4-6 year old’s stocking at Christmas. Not only is A Christmas Present for Roo an attractive, hard covered book, which has again been beautifully illustrated by New Zealand winner of prestigious illustration awards, Daron Parton but it brings back the animal friends from her previous book.

Oh no, baby Echidna (little puggle) over slept and hence has left her Christmas present gathering to the last minute. Can she find just the perfect gift for Roo? Luckily her bush friends are there to support her in her quest to find just the right present.  

This gentle story gives just the right Christmas message; the importance of friendship and helping others.
