THE WATERHOLE BY GRAEME BASE

 





There is something quite satisfying about watching a book enjoyed by two very different children. On the whole my son and daughter have been drawn towards quite different books. And that's not because I have put different ones in front of them. Everything that my son read, I have tried to read to my daughter. Of course, if she's not interested in something, I'm not going to push it.

But there are some books that she enjoys that my son loved - The Waterhole by Graeme Base is one of them.

It's primarily a book about counting. And both my children have enjoyed finding the animals within the illustrations - sometimes trickier than you might think. There are also lots of hidden animals too, which is my daughter's favourite part. Other clever features include the shrinking waterhole and that the animals relate to different continents from the world.
