This month at the Over60 Book Club, it’s all about children’s books. We’ve picked out six of our favourite stories that are perfect to read with the grandchildren. Last week we introduced you to the first two books, Cyclone by Jackie French and The Underwater Fancy-Dress Parade by Davina Bell. This week, we have two more – Together Always by Edwina Wyatt and Lucia Masciullo and I’m Australian Too by Mem Fox and Ronojoy Ghosh.
As a Book Club member, each month we’ll bring you six books to choose from. To read the book reviews, write reviews, chat with others and create an Over60 Book Club catch-up, click here. Happy reading!
