Random House New Zealand have just released two new collections of stories for young New Zealanders. Stories for 6 Year Olds and Stories for 7 Year Olds are chock full of short stories by some of our best local authors, and they’ve been specifically chosen for these age groups.
In these two books you’ll find stories by Kate de Goldi, Barbara Else, Margaret Mahy, David Hill, Sandy McKay, along with some talented new authors. The stories are a mixture of the ordinary and the extraordinary, and about all sorts of things, from pets to monsters, climbing trees to camping.
They’re perfect books for their age groups, with a font size that’s appropriate and appealing stories. They can be read by the children themselves or read aloud by parents or teachers. There is something for every reader in these wonderful collections.
