It’s an exciting time in our house – Miss T has started reading chapter books. Big kid books! That’s how she sees them and she’s rather proud of herself. Thanks to older cousins, she has been introduced to her first early reader book series – Billie B Brown by Australian author Sally Rippin.
Miss T has fallen in love with the feisty and friendly Billie. I’m happy these books encourage her love of reading and that they feature a strong female character who she can relate to. Billie’s adventures mirror those of Miss T and her friends, from a wobbly tooth to dealing with school bullies, friendships, gaining a new sister, midnight feasts or “playing hairdressers” (luckily Miss T hasn’t done that one!).
