Kid Konnection: The Snatchabook
Eliza the bunny was settling down in bed to read a book and her book suddenly disappears. She’s left confused but then discovers something similar has been happening all over the woods. As rumors spread, Eliza decides she has to get to the bottom of things and comes up with a plan. She’s nervous, but determined and catches the little Snatchabook. She talks to him and finds out that he’s sad because he has no one to read to him. Together they come up with a plan that’s sure to work for everyone.
The Snatchabook, by Helen and Thomas Docherty is a darling picture book that you’ll love to share with your children. There’s so much to love about this book, including the wonderful illustrations. Eliza is such a great character. She’s strong and brave but also empathetic when she discovers the Snatchabook isn’t lucky enough to have someone to read with. She doesn’t seek revenge; she seeks a solution.
Children are sure to love the excitement and mystery of The Snatchabook. There’s just enough tension to make them want to turn the pages but not too much to scare them away. This is a wonderful book for the whole family to share! You can pre-order this book now or look for it in October.
