Daisy the Donkey’s First Fare – by Russ Brown
Daisy does not fit in, as the only grey, scruffy donkey in a stable full of beautiful camels she is certainly different. She desperately wants to repay her owner Saul, for all his kindness, but nobody wants to travel on a donkey, or do they? A wonderful traditional tale told with a modern twist, a must for children of all ages. This, Russ’ first published book, was short-listed for a B&N children’s indie author prize.
Reviews for Daisy The Donkey
I was recommended this book by a friend and bought a copy for my daughter (6) she loves it and asks for it as her bedtime book every night. We now know it off by heart and she still loves it a heart-warming traditional tale told from a modern viewpoint, we love it! 🙂
I needed a resource for a unit in literacy for my year 1/2 class leading up to Christmas and this book fitted the bill perfectly. It provided numerous opportunities for activities and discussion in class that in turn facilitated learning in a whole host of other subjects such as history, art and RE. I can see myself using this book for many years to come in my teaching career. Highly recommended.
*Teachers please note: I have a substantial guided reading pack which goes with Daisy the Donkey’s First Fare and is available to schools either as a guided reading pack including 6 copies of the book and the teachers pack, or as an individual teachers pack.

Poppy’s Planet! tells the story, in rhyme, of a magical flying penguin who sees the damage and destruction caused to our fragile planet by man. She discovers that although she is only small she can make us all aware that we can save the Earth. Poppy takes from her bed at night to circle the Earth to witness first hand the effects of man. A beautiful and thought-provoking picture book which deals with the sensitive issues of the environment in a child friendly way with illustrations by Jamie Cosley.
Reviews for Poppy’s Planet!
Really enjoyed this book, it is very informative for youngsters and could be used to cover different areas of the curriculum.
A great book for all ages. As a teacher myself, this could be a really wonderful resource for so many different aspects of the curriculum, as well as specific topical issues but also a really lovely book to share with a child for pleasure. Well written, easy to read, with a great rhyme and rhythm throughout. A simple story with bags of discussion points that this little wonder creates. Well worth a purchase, really enjoyable 🙂
