Think you know how to write the alphabet?
We’ll teach you how to DRAW it.
Parents/teachers, if you grew up in the 1980s, you might remember the joy of lettering books, which helped to make school projects and assignments a tad more presentable, even if you weren’t artistic. The Super Lettering Book brings back that joy for a new generation.
With themed alphabets including travel (Going Places), Educational (Cool for School), Food (Snack Time) and more, as wel as tips for using the alphabets as springboard to extra creativity, there is plenty here for the least artistic to trace/copy and the more creative to use as a springboard to their own ideas. There are also templates for common words such as ‘awesome’ and ‘selfie’.
Lots of fun, The Super Lettering Book will appeal to primary aged kids.
The Super Lettering Book
Hardie Grant Egmont, 2016
’twas the night before Christmas
there wasn’t a sound.
Not a possum was stirring;
no-one was around.
Following on from the success of The Aussie Night Before Christmas hardcover, board book, pop up and activity book, this popular story has been rereleased as a board game book, containing both the story and 10 games for children to play.
The story is an Aussie version of Clement Moore’s poem The Night Before Christmas, complete with kangaroos, utes and thongs. At the back of the book there are boards for six different board games, and punch out cards for four card games, as well as tokens and instructions for all ten games.
An Aussie Night Before Christmas Board Game Book is a wonderful Christmas offering for young Aussies, or for sending overseas as an Aussie flavoured Christmas gift.
Lots of fun.
