Reading made easy – pony fun for beginning readers

Luisa is new to the class, and she’s really happy to be going to pony school – or, at least, she would be if it weren’t for cheeky Finn. He never misses a chance to tell her how dangerous the animals are. Then Luisa finds that she’s down to look after the ponies next weekend! What a good thing Marie and Anne are there, too – because they know there’s absolutely no need for anyone to be frightened of pony mum, Lotta, and her frisky son, Lars the foal. And Finn should look out, too, because he will certainly get what’s coming to him!

When animals are not quite the way you expected – a wonderfully crazy discovery book

Who can see Ingo the flamingo, Mat the cat, or Kellogg the dog ? This amusing picture book has plenty of challenges for young explorers since there’s always one animal that’s a little bit different from the norm. We see a pug in a tutu dancing through town, a horse flying across the sky like Superman, and a jellyfish playing the trumpet. The message here is very clear: Be yourself and no one else, use your own voice, that’s the only choice. You can, you may - hurray, hurray, that’s what we say!

A different approach to learning about animals
Great fun for small discoverers

For every girl who’s crazy about horses and children, and loves books about special friendships
