Always Be Us Three is a touching book about a child experiencing the break up of his parents' marriage. It's in the form of a rhyme and is told in a very clear, tender and empathetic way to give support to children that may be experiencing the same thing - something many find traumatic. I myself was rather traumatised when Lenny the Slug left my home... if only this book had been around for me when that terrible event happened. I still weep to this day.
The illustrations match the rhyme perfectly. Another winning combination from Natalie Finnigan and Gina Rahman.
A novel way to learn a language for young kids/slugs about to embark upon Spanish as a 2nd/3rd/10th language. My slugs have already taken it up and learnt many things yet still continue to burn my toast in the morning. It's quite short so not at all taxing for young kids or slugs that are missing one or two brain cells. My only criticism would be that black and white might not appeal to young ones, perhaps redo it in colour? Still, not bad! :)
