About this deal

I suppose I can say that the initial premise is of a little old lady going out to pick vegetables and stumbling across a big hairy orange toe. READ AND SHARE is a unique first library for parents and children that helps build early readers’ confidence.

plus, I let her imagination run wild as we try to figure out how the creature lost it's Hairy Toe in the first place! She then decides to take it home with her (what possesses her to do this I do not know), and then night falls. I stopped reading after the middle of the story and allowed the children to think what might happen next and I did a shared WB writing assuming if they were the author how they would end that story? The first time I read it to a class they sit in silence, hanging onto every word with such suspense.Grouped in four progressive levels, Read and Share books - available individually for the first time - are specially selected for qualities that encourage literacy skills and a love of reading. Join our community to get personalised book suggestions, extracts straight to your inbox, 10% off RRPs, and to change children’s lives. Also love a classic picture book and folktale with an old woman protagonist (despite her meeting an implied gruesome end). I think that it can be a scary book -if read in the right way -which is rare for a picture book so they love the feeling of being scared (but knowing they are safe at the same time -if that makes sense!

Humorously illustrated by Daniel Postgate this spine-tickling traditional tale is perfect for halloween and shouts to be read out loud! Sixteen top-quality books with notes for extending reading fun inspire the confidence parents and children need to experience the joys of reading . The story is about an old women, one day she finds a hairy toe while she was picking beans and takes to her home.I've even taken it in to my son's class and read it to them - joyously received with squeals of delight and shock at the end - I do get a bit carried away on the last page. I don't know why but there's something about this story that's just wonderfully creepy and beautiful.

In this spine-tickling traditional tale, an old woman finds a hairy toe – and soon the owner comes looking for it! While out picking beans an old woman finds a hairy toe – and soon wishes she hadn't – especially when its owner comes looking for it.I used the book for my reception lesson and found the children literally bound to the story and were engaged as a part of that story. Rereading this little gem again today and I can still say that this is a scary book for younger readers. ever since ive been little ive loved this book so many childrens books are about the prince and the princess living happily ever after which is pretty cool but this book is original and funny and random i love it!
