Series: My first word books
By Holly Bathie
There are over 300 familiar words in this delightfully illustrated book about school. Words such as ‘playground’, ‘desk’ and ‘friends’ are arranged in themes to introduce children to different events in the school day, from the playground to the classroom, maths, words and art. Perfect for sharing with little ones before their first day at school.
Holly Bathie grew up in Devon, where she spent all her time reading rather than going outside in the fresh air. After university, she moved to Oxford to briefly work in the theatre before moving to children’s publishing. Until the age of 7 she wanted to be an acrobat, a lollipop lady, a lawyer or a comedienne before deciding the best job would be to create Usborne books, so she is thrilled to be finally doing it! In her spare time she enjoys all kinds of dancing and performs with an amateur theatre group.
