Day 9 #adventchallenge


                                                     Turn it up Doris by Sam Lloyd
We have never had one of these books in our house, and our daughter had often pointed them out when she had seen them in shops, so when I saw this book on the Books For Bugs website, I knew I had to get it!! (www.booksforbugs.co.uk)

Doris is Boris' sister, (Boris being the subject of the first of these books) and is very quiet for a monster. She is meant to be singing at school, but she can only whisper. Boris tells her to "Turn it up!" and with some child interaction with the story, soon find her voice when it is really important.

My daughter loved this book, not only for the story, but for the fact that when she has finished listening to the story and stroking Doris, she can then tell the story herself and make others stroke Doris with her hand controlling the character!!

Another story which doesn't disappoint!!
