Noni the Pony

This latest publication from classic Australian Author Alison Lester has been shortlisted by the Children's Book Council of Australia for 2011, and has already won ABIA Book of the Year 2011 for younger children. Alison was also chosen to be Australia's Inaugural Children's Laureate alongside Boori Monty Pryor.

Oh this one is so cute!!  Rhyming text on each page make it a perfect lullaby style picture book, especially as Noni is curled up in bed at the end.

It basically describes Noni the pony and what she likes to do, eat and play!  The text touches on the scariness of darkness / thunder at bedtime ...

"Noni the Pony is happy and bright,

but once in a while she gets spooked in the night."

... but cuddles and a story soon put that right again.

Great, bright illustrations and just two lines of rhyme on each double page make this perfect for holding the attention of little ones before bedtime.

Perfect for young children!

My 3 year old, who loves ponies and loves rhymes, was in her element with this book. My daughter sometimes tries to guess the last word that rhymes with the line above. We love Alison Lester, especially as her work appeals to a variety of ages.
