Review: The Gecko and the Echo. Goldy the gecko is the star of The Gecko and the Echo. He’s a self-assured, singing reptile who thinks he has what it takes to be famous. Goldy sings his heart out, playing guitar and dancing along. The trouble is, he’s very loud and makes noise all day (and night) long. He’s not overly considerate of his friends and neighbours, and one day they let him know what they think of his musicality and thoughtless behaviour.
Book: The Muddy Chef. I’ve lost count of the number of hours I spent in the garden as a child, making lemon scented perfume, bitter ‘sourgrass’ shots and rose petal jam. My own children too, have been encouraged to build, scoop, scrape, bury and bake in the garden. Mindful, absorbing play. No meditation app required! This wonderful picture book The Muddy Chef, is a testament to child’s play, gumboots and the invention of the washing machine.

Increases word exposure and improves vocabulary. When students are offered the opportunity to have audiobooks in the classroom, their world can finally open up. Having books read aloud helps these struggling readers move beyond the decoding and right into learning. The more words they learn and incorporate into their knowledge-base, the better able they will be to access grade-level materials.
