The Smeds and the Smoos

We have selected The Smeds and the Smoos as our Mini book of the month for September – the latest irresistible rhyme by the bestselling creators of The Gruffalo and Zog. Perfect for storytimes and for encouraging young children to read, it tells the heartwarming story of the red and blue aliens, who never mix until two of them fall in love. The rhyming text is perfect for reading aloud with young children at home or in the classroom, and also ideal for beginner readers to enjoy on their own. Showing how friendship can overcome differences, it is a joyful celebration of tolerance and getting along, which conveys a message of empathy using an exciting space theme that kids will love.

Also available in class packs of six and 30 copies.
