One thing I’m a little on the passionate side about is sharing my love of reading books with my girls. From a very early age I’ve been laying on the floor reading books to all three of them – hoping the love of words and stories would seep into their souls. My eldest is now in grade two and has really started to engage with her school reading. For a while now I’ve been keeping and eye out for some good age appropriate books that she can start to read for pleasure. Then a few weeks ago I had a conversation with the team from Hardie Grant Egmont at the Digital Parents Conference and they sent me home with Sink or Swim from the GO GIRLs series written by Thalia Kalkipsakis. I’m so glad they did because the magic reading bug has now burrowed deep down into my daughter’s heart where I think it will live happily for a very long time to come.
A Kidz Book Review by Cate.
Hi my name is Cate. I am seven years old and I have just read one of the best books. It took me two and a half days to read it. Go Girls are good books, or should I say great books. I love reading books. Bec, (who is the main character) did learn that swimming is not about winning – it’s about having fun. I read it every night because I really wanted to know what was going on. My favourite character was of course Bec. Her friends were named Holly, Ruby and Georgia. I liked how if one of them didn’t win they would still say congratulations. Okay, thank you very much for letting my review it. Cate …..Go Girls!
I believe there are a few books in the GO GIRLS collection and I can see we’ll probably be owning them all over the coming years. They retail from around $9.95.
