A New Zealand book every kid should read before the age of 12 - Grandpa's Slippers by Joy Watson




The New Zealand Book Council came up with a list of books by New Zealanders that they reckon every kid should have read by the age of 12.  I decided to check out the ones I haven't read and post about the ones I agreed were good (in no particular order).

So Grandpa's Slippers is a charming book to read to young ones.  It has elements of repetition and humour which mean that both the reader and the young one will enjoy it.


Grandpa's slippers are comfortable but are falling apart.  Grandma has a campaign to get him into new ones.
